Negativland & SUE-C
We Can Really Feel Like We’re Here
A LIVE CINEMA / LIVE AUDIO PERFORMANCE BY NEGATIVLAND & SUE-C
Live cinema visual artist SUE-C and legendary sound collage group Negativland collaborate in a live audio-visual performance about our minds, the world we live in, and the evolving forms of media and technology that orchestrate our perceptions.
"An urgent show by Negativland and artist SUE-C calls time on a tech dystopia that is as malevolent as it is stupid to meet the terrifying contemporary moment as the world slides incrementally into meltdown."
-The Wire Magazine
About the Artists
Since 1980, the 4 or 5 or 6 (or more) Floptops known as Negativland, a multimedia collective originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, have been creating records, CDs, video, fine art, books, radio and live performance using appropriated sounds, images, objects, and text. Mixing original materials and original music with things taken from corporately owned mass culture and the world around them, Negativland surreally re-arrange these found bits and pieces to make them say and suggest things that they never intended to.
SUE-C (Sue Slagle)
Sue Slagle, who goes by the stage name SUE-C, is a video and light artist working at the intersection of creative coding and live performance. For the past 18 years, she has created handmade videos and live media performances, traveling extensively in Europe and the US. Her works challenge the norms of photography, video, and technology by blending them all into an organic and improvisational live performance setting. Employing a variety of digital tools to create an experimental animation “instrument,” she synthesizes cinema from photographs, drawings, watercolors, handmade papers, fabrics and miniature lighting effects.
Las Sucias is the Avant-Tropical Noise duo formed by Danishta Rivero and Alexandra Buschman-Román. Through ritualistic and improvisatory manifestations involving electronics and bruja voices, they look to their Venezuelan and Puerto Rican roots, and the diaspora's cultural expression, steeped in Afro-Caribbean and mestiza consciousnesses.
