The event is part of DeForrest Brown Jr.’s project as the 2017 Suzanne Fiol Curatorial Fellow, in collaboration with Berlin-based artist and musician Steven Warwick (aka Heatsick). Proposing itself as a ‘war on style,’ E-M defines itself as a cataloguing space and a focus group which uses performance, installation and sound design to explore “play-as-platform” through a “flat non-space and its orbiting culture of collapsing economies and corroding identities.”
The event featured Warwick performing from his Nadir (2016) release, as well as his bed-sheet reading ‘Can’t Be Arsed’ from recent past solo exhibition Neutral(2016) at Berlin’s Exile. Exploring ‘placelessness’ and ’emotional disaffection,’ Warwick also recently published Fear Indexing the X-Files(2017) with Nora Khan by Primary Information.
