Scope Sessions #83
Viviana Druga & Rachid Moro
09.05.2019 6:30pm - 9pm
SomoS is pleased to host the 83rd edition of the “Scope Sessions Artist’s Talks & Media Salon.” In this edition, Romanian ritualista and photographer Viviana Druga and Belgian electronic musician Rachid Moro will present their work.
Viviana Druga is a Romanian ritualista based in Berlin who uses performance and photography and installation based work as her main forms of expression. She was born in Transylvania – Romania. Until the age of 12 she would visit together with her sister the grandparents living near the Carpathian mountains. Her childhood was influenced by the free life of the mountain area and the Christian – orthodox Mysticism brought in by her mother. Before she left Romania in 2008 she was predominantly interested in the social side of art, performing activist art actions in Bucharest such as infiltrating the international biennial, photographing herself with the president on the street while being dressed like a guerrilla, and convincing people to pose in their swimsuits in winter at a busy intersection where an off-limits park had been constructed. Since she moved to Berlin, she has been investigating the personal, poetic side of performing, the new dimensions of reality and capturing that reality through photography – using art as a magical activity that can help the subject / audience discover new dimensions of oneself.

Rachid Moro / AIREM // Techno’graphy
Rachid Moro was born in Belgium in 1972 and is based in Brussels and Berlin. Moro is an electronic musician, visual artist and light designer working with self-made technologies, both software and hardware to create immersive performances, sensitive sculptures, light scenographies and generative graphics.
His visual and sound practices cross-pollinate each other and explore new narratives through feedback loops, unstable structures, systems based on unpredictable events and ordered chaos.
This talk will be dedicated to present some recent works and collaborations circling around the technology hybridisation often applied. Discussing the club as an experimentation playground and the nonexistent line separating sound, light and image creation in the digital context.
