What: e-Xplo live sound performance accompanied with film screening
Since their first project Dencity, which involved an electro-acoustic bus
tour around the periphery of Williamsburg, e-Xplo has formally been
investigating the lines connecting sound, space, place, performance and
“cinema”. Despite the gaining popularity of “psychogeography” or
“cartography” within current artistic discourses, e-Xplo continues to be
interested in alternate ways of mapping, isolating, linking and connecting
different places/locations, foregrounding the links between topographical,
historical and personal developments.
Often starting with a specific site (more often a set of sites –
discursive, physical, virtual, historical, …), the collective, comprised
of Erin McGonigle, Heimo Lattner, & Rene Gabri, then develops a set of
themes that often intertwine personal, environmental, architectural,
discursive and political narratives.
Although a great number of their site specific projects have engaged with
the touring genre, they are also interested in other contexts that allow
them to reformulate or reconstitute their investigations.
This Monday, e-Xplo will be performing a live version of a film/sound
installation created for an exhibition in a WWII Bunker located in the
center or the “new” Berlin.
This performance is a follow up to the NY premiere with Shelley Hirsch
last weekend at Location 1. The event was a part of Roulette’s Fall
Series. For more information, please visit: http://www.roulette.org
For tonight’s performance, Ayreen Anastas will be reading.
We hope to see you, late notice and all.
