Description

* This is documentation of the looping video installation/landscape originally projected as accompaniment to a 3 hour live performance that was VORFREUDEN I * The House Of ia VORFREUDEN I WITCHES X ESKFF Artist Residency Exhibition Spring 2015 at STREAM Gallery, Brooklyn VORFREUDEN is the second installment of The House Of ia's Humans Project, an experiential inquiry in locating the ‘body’ (being body, social body, body of work) as a central tool, as site, as social context, as a biotic archive in which to source material from. As we elicit the practice of ‘human’ as 'material', we embrace the inevitable un-locatability of a being/becoming body whose validity lies in sensation based knowing, knowledge within itself and nothing else, knowledge unearthed from information circuits bygone by linearity. Vorfreuden extracts the sap of a cellular re(collection). "Unflaggingly, like an inescapable boomerang, a vortex of summons and repulsion places those haunted by it literally beside themselves." —Kristeva Performed, Shot & Edited by THOi Sound / Remix by THOi & sampled from original music by Julia Holter
