Drawing in the Ambient Treehouse
22 April @ 7:00 pm – 23 April @ 3:00 am
The intricacies of Shibari and Aerial acrobatics are challenging to capture, but creates new ways to study our human anatomy. This event gives visual artists the opportunity to work from life, whilst experiencing breathtaking Shibari and Acrobatic performances.
Shibari is a form of Japanese rope tying that juxtaposes geometric patterns and shapes with the body’s natural curves and textures. The model is a canvas, and the rigger an artist who paints with rope. These aesthetic and intricate knot arrangements also stimulate pressure points in the body and can become a form of massage.
Aerial acrobatics (Luftakrobatik) involves a steel hoop suspended from the ceiling in which an artist performs acrobatic and contortionist tricks. Commonly seen in the circus, it combines elements of acrobatics, contortion and dance, enabling the performer to hang from atypical body parts, such as the elbows, the shoulders, or even the neck. In aerial acrobatics, poses balance physical exertion with techniques such as twists and hooks, providing peculiar viewing angles that make for a unique live drawing experience.
Following the drawing sessions, soul-stirring ambient sets will carry the night into the early hours.Pacific Rift will meld a selection from Asmus Tietchens Hydrophonie studies and Donato Dozzy’s most intimate works with personal field recordings and Sahara’s Azu Tiwaline’ latest release for Livity Sound.Mitchell Keaney’s commanding flow of drones, field recordings and loops promises a live set that transforms the world about us into a profound soundscape of mindful rendition.Daniel Craig will re-order the inner and outer sound worlds with the use of concrete sounds, reel-to-reel tape and MaxMSP, amongst other things.The drawing class will begin at 19:00 and end at 21:00.
The ambient sets will start at 20:00 and run until at least 02:00.In order to keep things comfortable, we’re capping the capacity at 101 and asking visitors to take off their shoes in the entrance hall before entering the living room.
