TK & DLO
from: 23.10.2017 to: 29.10.2017
TK is an award-winning lighting, video and interactive artist. He is based in Berlin and Sydney. A central theme of his practice is empowering participants with new abilities and perspectives. He often works with people with disabilities and marginalized communities to explore how technology can empower these groups.
DLO is a Berlin based performance artist. Her work spans puppetry, comedy and burlseque performance. Her work has been seen everywhere from warehouses in Brooklyn and jungles in Kalimantan to the Sydney Opera House and the Roundhouse in London.
TK & DLO will debut, “3rd Person,” during The Beholder group exhibition at SomoS Art House. “3rd Person” is a BDSM influenced interactive experience where a performer/participant is lightly restrained and wears a helmet containing video glasses. The video stream is not virtual reality, but actual reality through an external lens. The facilitator controls a camera that gives the participant an outside perspective on themselves. This cognitive dissonance between being a beholder and beholden itself becomes an element of the bondage.
