Digital Diary, Live conversation, 30/04/21
Kitsch Doom and Bettina Saroyan are both interested in how human-technology relationships can change the way we perceive the world and ourselves, how it makes us evolve in a certain way, for the worst or better.
Torn between traditions, which emphasize their drifting toward dematerialization and technical progress and its promises (transhumanism and posthumanism), this dialogue nurtures their art practice but also the way they conceive our era. For them, traditions and technology are not opposed but complementary, helping us to appropriate our own stories and identities.
Devices like phones, social media or virtual realities are very present in their installations and are a full part of the artwork.
Underlining our growing dependence towards ‘the network’, populated by colorful characters and delirious beings, Kitsch Doom and Bettina Saroyan invite you into their communicating realities for a real epic virtual conversation!
They will be accompanied by Aine Phillips, an award winning visual artist and academic based in Galway. She works in live performance, video and sculptural installation.
