junglejungle, a performance by Kite
junglejungle is a movement performance by the artist, Kite (aka Suzanne Kite) that incorporates a variety of media including the physical body, interfaces, drawings, and audio components. Using a custom body interface the artist will enter into varying levels of control and non-control over the performance's soundtrack. This performance engages with Blu Mar Ten’s 1989-1999 drum and bass sample pack, translations of Lakota songs, habitual audience behaviours, and the position of certain planets.
Presented in conjunction with Loner Culture, a group exhibition featuring works by Thirza Cuthand, Kite, and Fallon Simard. Curated by Lindsay Nixon. For more information about the exhibition click here.
