Performance at dusk!
Location in Western Front vicinity, TBA
As the sun dips and darkness falls around Western Front, lilithlithlithlithlith invites participation in the form of listening to, along, beside and around. Informed by actions, consultations and events that took place as part of Elsa Ferrari’s media arts residency and throughout the following months, this durational performance will make audible a range of energetic phenomena at a time when seeing might become a tool of less importance.
lilithlithlithlithlith, is an ongoing sound-based research and performance project begun by Ferrari while in residence at Western Front from November 2017 to February 2018. The project interrogates power/energy infrastructures, their frequency emissions, and their sites.
Elisa Ferrari works with text, image, and sound. To consider acts and implications of retrieval, she produces projects that manifest as installations, sound walks, artist books, and performance; often addressing or incorporating archival fragments. Ferrari holds a BFA from the University of Architecture of Venice (IUAV) and a MAA from Emily Carr University of Art + Design (ECUAD). From 2013 to 2017 she worked as Events and Exhibitions Curator at VIVO Media Arts Centre. She is currently collaborating with Stacey Ho on a book of graphic scores for deep listening and sound making.
