Sleeve Shock

Organisation:

Eligibility:

Sleeve Shock and Birth Sleeves? are two complementary exhibitions and talks events running in parallel from Monday 3rd until Sunday 16th October. (Frieze London 2022 runs from 12-16th October).

They are intended to provoke discussion around the human skin as a primary signifier of identity. The dialogue between the two shows will enable comparative views from different life phases, and evoke a trans-humanist perspective on identify conflict.

Sleeve shock will provide an opportunity for artists from outside the capital to exhibit in the London art scene.

Birth Sleeves?

Taken from Richard Morgan’s Altered Carbon, sleeves are the term used for bodies that serve as a receptacle for the human consciousness. The body an individual is born with is called their Birth Sleeve. 

A recurring theme in trans-humanist thinking is that one day we will be able to upload our human consciousness into some form of device which can then be relocated into a new body (re-sleeved), whether naturally born, modified or artificially created, as required or desired.

This exhibition, Birth Sleeves?, is a celebration of the opened sleeves of 7 people from across the diversity spectrum, aged 50+, whose skins have witnessed and recorded their lives in a myriad of ways, some through their own choice, some resulting from bio-technological intervention but mostly from the abrasion of engaging with life as they progress through it.

Sleeve Shock.

When an individual is re-sleeved they often experience a degree of sleeve shock. The more foreign the sleeve is in comparison to the individual’s birth sleeve, in terms of age, race, gender etc, the more intense the shock. Whilst we in 2022 are not living in the year of Altered Carbon, I feel this gives us a different perspective on aspects of identity conflict felt by so many of us.

This exhibition facilitates a conversation with artists who perhaps are experiencing a degree of sleeve shock as if they have been re-sleeved into something not quite compatible with who they are.

As we progress through the years, we come to terms with, we learn to ignore, we amend, we conceal or simply lose interest in the issues with our sleeves.

However these early career Artists are at the beginning of that process. Their work is raw and fresh and uses current techniques and media to confront, evade and wrestle with the sleeves they find themselves in.

We are looking for artists who can relate to this idea - as if they have been re-sleeved into something not quite compatible with who they are.

Body painting. Personal History. Performance

Workshop with KV Duong

The workshop will focus on strategies and ideas on how to weave one’s life history into your practice, specifically in a performative context. KV will introduce his practice and share sources of ideas and experimentation. Participants will get a demonstration and then try out themselves the following topics: using your body as a paint brush, using sound sourced from youtube and real life (e.g., your voice) and looping the audio, using video projection and video looping/ layering.

Technical requirement: Smart phone with free app ‘Meitu’ downloaded

KV Duong (b.1980 Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam) is a London-based artist with a practice that spans painting, sculpture, and performance. Duong grew up in Canada to Chinese Vietnamese parents displaced by the Vietnam War. In his work he explores themes of migration and cultural assimilation, through a re-examination of his parents’ and his own experiences. War trauma and integration correlate with the artist’s coming out as a gay Asian man.

Duong is a self-taught artist with a background in structural engineering. He has performed at Stockholm Supermarket International Art Fair and at various London venues including Raymond Revue Bar. Duong will have his first UK institutional exhibition at the Migration Museum in April 2022.

From Drawing to Painting Live

Workshop with Ram Samocha

This workshop with Draw to Perform's director Ram Samocha will focus the shift from drawing to painting live. The workshop will concentrate on the connection between sharing the process and layering the marks. It will also combine between elements of movement and stillness while making marks and using sound. Participants will experiment with this performative art practice and talk about possible options of working and creating art in real time.

Ram Samocha is a multi-disciplinary artist who currently resides in Brighton, UK. Samocha’s work combines drawing with video, installation, sound, and live performance. Samocha often mixes modern and traditional drawing techniques while searching for new ways to combine between 2D and 3D work. Samocha is the founder of Draw to Perform, an international gathering of artists and theorists involved in drawing performance. Samocha’s work has been recognized nationally and internationally and his work is part of various museums and private collections.

3 IMMERSIVE ARTS RESIDENCIES

CULTVR Lab is pleased to announce the first two open calls for Catalyst 360º, an ambitious residency and virtual exhibitions programme designed to support artists to engage, develop and test immersive experiences that lie between the physical and digital realm.

3 residency opportunities will be facilitated through this strand to support the research, development and presentation of new immersive productions and live experiences. 

The call invites creative practitioners to submit projects that leverage the unique capabilities of CULTVR Lab and its forward facing performance space, which features a 180º immersive dome with a 15.1 surround sound system. 

The intensive Immersive Residency Programme will support the awarded creatives for one month (this can be working remotely) with access to CULTVR’s dome venue over a period of 5 to 7 days (as a consecutive block or individual days spread over a month). 

Each awarded residency will obtain financial support to utilise in the development of their own projects. Additional support will also be provided through key resources and in-house experience to develop and bring to life each proposal, with the aim to share each production for public presentation. 

Applications are welcomed from either individual artists or collaborative teams from various disciplines such as visual arts, interactive design, sound arts, dance, theatre, animation, game design, robotics and artificial intelligence. 

Submitted applications must be original and must not have been presented elsewhere beforehand in a completed form; however, projects that have already had some development work are eligible to apply alongside new proposals. (For example, you might be a musician or a band with a recent album that you want to turn into a live AV performance or a dance company looking to adapt some initial choreography into an immersive showcase).
