About

'Transfera' exhibition launch date Thursday 4th September 2008 6pm to midnite Live Performance at 10pm Exhibition runs til Sunday 28th September 2008 viewing 6pm til 8pm daily tranSfera is an exhibition curated by The Others with performance and works by Suka Off, a performance art group based in Poland a collaboration by artists Piotr Wegrzynski and Sylvia Lajbig The goal of tranSfera is to search for non-verbal forms of communication between those in an intimate relationship. "tranSfera" is a hybrid work which installed as an audio-visual exhibit, involves live performance utilising real-time video and sonic components. "We alter the perceived image of body, referring to the modern information chaos and the manipulation of reality performed by the media and their technologies." Piotr Wegrzynski and Sylvia Lajbig deal directly with both physical/emotional/sexual and gender aspects of intimacy and digital mediations, here conceptualised as "transfers" or exchanges between the two performers. They use old gramophone to "read" the sound of their skin, tape recorders/microphones/speakers to record/play/consume each others voices, video cameras/projectors to capture and exchange their faces and sexual attributes. It all happens in a very clean and simple space, The performers are sited in the performance space in such a manner that their actions can be observed closely by audience invited to walk around them.
