ABOUT THE WORK

Working with phenomena including bioacoustics, vibration and electromagnetism, Philomène Pirecki will present a new audio visual installation and live performance. The work will explore the fleeting nature of heightened sensory and emotional states, continuing Pirecki’s preoccupation with the temporalities and impermanence of lived experience, time, memory and perception.
