Lorah Pierre + Ewa Justka
Lorah Pierre is an artist whose practice attempts to explore the nature of ‘event’ through live working collaborations in physical and virtual spaces. Projects focus on experimentation across a number of disciplines, the recycling of materials, self-built hardware, hacking and bending, along with a DIY ethos allowing interactive installations and performances to develop out of temporal space. Her multi-disciplinary approach has led to a number of collaborations with scientists, performers and musicians.
Ewa Justka is a polish electronic artist based in London, currently studying BA Sound Arts & Design at LCC. Justka’s research concerns the exploration of materiality of objects, vibrant, ontological systems (human and plant bodies, electronic circuits; varied range of micro and macro environments and relation between them) and an investigation of modes of quasi-direct perception through noise performance actions, interactive installation, hardware hacking, circuit bending, accordion stretching, plants-molesting, breaking, deconstructing and collaborating. In her artistic work Ewa attempts to explore the concept of physicality of objects through creation of instant interactions between them.
Cinos Hself examines the inter-relations between human and technology through the wave and particle effects of electromagnetic radiation. Lorah and Ewa position themselves as an intervening medium between source and observer, to reveal often unseen intangible phenomenas. Through the medium of their own bodies integrated into homebuilt hardware and live electronics, Cinos Hself opens up an audio-visual exploration into corresponding wavelength and frequency ranges. Questioning the space between silence and noise, stillness and movement, performer and audience, unpredictable sounds and erratic rhythms emerge through gesture, touch and movement.
The body is integrated.
