Monica Mirabile's SubDerivatives: FADED
WITCHES Artist Residency Exhibition
Friday, April 17th, 8-10pm
Monica Mirabile’s performance art addresses themes of technology, sensuality and control. Mirabile presents SubDerivatives: FADED, a social choreography in which the hypnosis of culture compels the body to nod between control and lack of control. The drug induced body produces the synonymous glitch of a technologically dramatic everyday.
Exploring the physical action of temporal existence within a subconscious escape, the house and the body become a marketed comfort. Spirituality in a middle American, drug-minded worldview is constructed as a 3D “home” hypnotized by a soundscape collaboratively produced by Sigrid Lauren with sample by Cloaking.
Featuring: Jason Jick and Bebe Yama
