Tears, hair, and rustle: brain wave performance by Anna Nazo
5th of April, 19:00 - 21:00
As a part of BODIES OF WATER, we are pleased to present “Tears, hair, and rustle“, a live digital-physical performance-talk on reimagining water.
Water is one of Anna’s research dimensions, investigated as a slice, fractal (Golding, Mandelbrot). The work includes a brief introduction to Anna’s current practice-led research, and continues her recent series of brain wave performances, which experiment with poetics (Heideggerian), technology, movement, sound, and CGI (computer-generated imagery).
Anna’s art practice and research focus on multidimensionality of reality and self, supra-sensuousness, and parrhesia (Foucault) in contemporary art practice placed at the intersection of live digital–physical performance, embodiment, multi-reality environment, and contemporary technologies.
Anna Nazo is currently a practice-led research student in Fine Art (Performance) at the Royal College of Art (London), supervised by Professor Nigel Rolfe and Professor Johnny Golding.
