    Anna Barham at Chelsea Space for Arcade

    About this event

    As felt as if is new a text developed from Vilém Flusser's Vampyroteuthis Infernalis (vampire squid), through human readings and computer transcriptions in repeated cycles of performance, documentation and recombination.

    In the performance, Barham inserts herself into the material through a live vocalisation that momentarily articulates some of the possibilities and images within it.

    Jointly supported by Chelsea Space and Arcade, the performance will be staged inside the Chelsea Space gallery with the normally hidden, reverse side of Barham's window commission, p- ool- s o-f t- he ou- t- l- ine- s, as a backdrop. The commission consists of a vast score containing over 100 versions of the passage from Flusser, pasted onto the window and trapping objects between the text and the glass which distort, annotate and punctuate the words.

    Arcade would like to thank Chelsea Space for hosting this performance.

    Spaces in these performances are very limited due to ongoing social distancing regulations. If you are unable to attend, please let us know.
