Live Performance: Plastique Fantastique

Plastique Fantastique will perform Urb-Fux-Glitter-Addiction, a special one hour performance in two parts with live sound and projected film. Plastique Fantastique is a collaboration between David Burrows, Alex Marzeta, Simon O’Sullivan, Vanessa Page and Harriett Scully, and is a mythopoetic fiction - an investigation of aesthetics, the sacred, popular culture and politics - produced through comics, performances, text, installations, shrines and assemblages.

Part I
How Urb-FUX-Glitter-Junky (an ALL-STAR) incubates and spreads the Virus-Junk-GLOOP – the gift-habit of Van-Damme-PLASTIC-Man (the ice-cream-maker) and his Running-RAT-Boyz-Cycle – until all (including you) are GLOOP-Blissed-Flatline or system-crashed.

Part II
How Urb-FUX-Glitter-Junky FLATLINE-sing-summons a passing comet carrying GOLD-Virus-Junk-GLOOP to Earth (an alien invasion) - flooding the planet with GLOOP-speed-POSITIVITY (the new drug simply called GOLD) – (distribution) controlled by Van-Damme-PLASTIC-Man (his plan all-a-long) – until Urb-Fux-Glitter-Junky reverse-overdoses on a mutant strain (GLOOP-speed-NEGATIVITY) - until all (including you) is backward-noise-melted – until all roads become rivers of gold - until all (including you) is GOLD-GLOOP-BLISS.


Saturday 9 May, 2-6pm

For the final event of their residencies, artists Kit Craig, Joey Holder and Takeshi Shiomitsu have devised a flexible framework through which to present ideas, works-in-progress and fragments of images, which will take place within Wysing’s gallery. Playing with the structure of a space for presentation, alongside the space itself, the gallery will become a fragmented environment within which, through a process of layering of imagery, video, film, text, spoken word and objects, the artists will give an insight into some of the research they have been focussing on during their time at Wysing. For the event, they will be joined by Electra’s Irene Revell who will present films by experimental feminist film-maker Sandra Lahire (1950-2001), with additional contributions from Canadian artist, writer and educator Emily Rosamond and the writer, critic and curator, Chris Fite-Wassilak.
