You can expect twisted turns from the performance art at GESTURES 01, in order to transfix and explode themes from the inside out, such as pain, the ritual of tattooing, the animal within the human, social politics and ‘otherness’. With a soundtrack of distorted synth, industrial churn and experimental techno.
Tattoo artist Michele Servadio will perform ‘Body of Reverbs’ to sonically interpret the pain act of tattooing, improvising live. Matteo Vallicelli, will bring italian punk flair to an abstract synth DJ set. French artist Olivier de Sagazan will sculpt and resculpt his face with clay and paint, veering between “Holy Face and Meat Face”. Dahc Dermur will deliver a DJ set with Butoh flavours and Japanese film noir. Singaporean live artist Nick Tee will expunge the politics of race and his sense of alienation through pain and endurance.
