Praba Pilar – “The NO!!!BOT”
Respecting the artist’s request, no images nor video were streamed. The high quality photos that were captured will be vetted by the artist, and once approved, may be shared. Stay tuned.

To tease you, here are writer Adi Berardini:

Two phones for eyes and a mouth
Technological and phallic
Fleshy straps and futuristic
Fucking with the spectator like technology does subliminally with saturated screens
“Radon Exo, Exoskeleton…robotic suit…the soldiers’ uniform of the future”

She tapes the wrists of four audience members together
Sexualizing cornmeal, corn stalks and mazola corn oil
Asking a participant to pour them on her naked body

————

Geneviève et Matthieu – “L’empire de la création”

What are we about to see? Stay tuned, Genevieve et Matthieu are next! #pizzapizza #LIVE2017 #livebiennale #performanceart

The bellowing sound of the Alchemist Wife singing opera
and eating florescent Cheetos from a plaster bowl
“Catharsis Catharsis Catharsis”

The dance the chant of the pizza. Genevieve et Matthieu are live at @vivomediaarts now! #LIVE2017 #livebiennale
