Performance Environment (one day only)

Gallery TPW is pleased to present work by emerging interdisciplinary artist Zeesy Powers as part of our performance series You Had to be There, looking at the relationship between liveness and images. Positing that our reality is increasingly conducted through means that disconnect our physical selves from the physical environment, Powers’ recent work wonders what happens when the physical aspect of our world ceases to be physical, when the real brushes against the digital. Her projection based performances combine live gesture with lo-fi, hand-painted animation to both haunting and humorous effect. As an evening performance and a one-day performative environment, The Ghost and TOTAL PANIC imagine a journey for both the individual and society as people make their way through projected worlds, figments of reality that become ever more unreal.
