Oreet Ashery launches her latest exhibition at fig-2 at the ICA Studio with performances by Anoxide and New Noveta on August 10.
Creating a two-stage exhibition, Ashery has invited the respective Death Metal band and performance duo to realise a “colliding performance” to take place on opening night, followed by an installation by the Israeli artist “instigating the embedded condition of death in the everyday and highlighting its presence”.
Ashery will transform the space into an all-white environment exhibiting two bronze busts by modernist sculptor Dora Gordine, a photograph of Amy Winehouse and producer Mark Ronson, and an excerpt from Alfred Hitchcock Presents. The installation exists as a kind of preparation and two-day casting session for the Spring 2016 launch of Ashery’s project, Revisiting Genesis—a web series looking at the “processes of dying, digital afterlife and legacy, outsider communities, friendships and reincarnations of women artists”.
