Event description

Description

Steven Warwick: Figuring Space (on the Mezzanine) is a special, two-day project from the Berlin-based artist, including a new audiovisual performance with texts by Elevator to Mezzanine, his project with media theorist DeForrest Brown Jr., and a performance-lecture-reading with writer Nora Khan.

Here, Warwick remixes unreleased sound with material from Nadir, his 2016 release that fuses reflective poetics with diaristic snapshots and fragmented melodies recorded during a residency in Los Angeles. Loops and rhythms are stretched out in real time, with a focus on the human voice. The work captures the tensions, unease and uncertainty in a contemporary setting—presented alongside three new E-M texts for Lampo about modern intimacy and millennial culture. The event also features dancer Benjamin Wardell.

Presented in conjunction with our Nora Khan and Steven Warwick lecture and performance reading, Fear Indexing the X-Files, at the Lampo Annex on Friday, December 1, which is supported by a grant from the Carl & Marilynn Thoma Art Foundation.

Steven Warwick (b.1981, Boston, England) is an artist, musician and writer based in Berlin. His practice includes durational performance installations, plays and films, using the construction of situations and language. He also makes music as Heatsick and under his own name—the latest release, Nadir, appeared recently on PAN. He has exhibited and performed throughout the United States and Europe at venues including Exile Galerie, Berlin; ICA, London; the Modern Institute, Glasgow; MoMA/PS1, New York; MUTEK, Montreal; the Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin; New Theater, Berlin; and Unsound Festival, Krakow. His writings have appeared in Texte zur Kunst, Urbanomic and Electronic Beats.

Presented by Lampo in partnership with Rebuild Foundation
