Examining the digital age’s supernatural imaginary & occult resurgence in the Paranormal Storytime event presented by AQNB at London’s The Yard Theatre

16 December 2019

Paranormal Storytime, an event presented by AQNB and curated by Jared Davis, is on at London’s The Yard Theatre on Sunday February 16, 2020, from 7pm. 

Taking its title from a phenomenon of supernatural stories shared by YouTube vloggers, Paranormal Storytime looks at the digital age’s occult resurgence and neo-gothic tendencies, as well as our fear of the unknown and its relation to technology. 

New York-based writer, critic and author of speculative fiction novel Oval Elvia Wilk will present a talk, and Cologne-via-Washington D.C producer Swan Meat will perform live, with her new EP soon to be released on Infinite Machine. The evening will also present a screening programme with video works by artists Tianzhuo Chen as well as Wang Newone. Berlin-based artist Tea Stražičić has designed Paranormal Storytime’s poster artwork.

Tickets are available now on Eventbrite, see the Facebook event for more details. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.**

Dystopian escapism & impending social collapse in the sculptural forms & video game work of Schwestern Sisters & Ittah Yoda

9 May 2019

Tea and Marta Stražičić‘s Schwestern Sisters collective’s Dance with the devil group exhibition, in collaboration with the artistic duo Ittah Yoda (Virgile Ittah and Kai Yoda), was on at Zagreb’s Galerija Močvara between March 1 to 8. 

Curated by Lovro Japundzic, Sculptural elements of bones, crude tools in an icy-white gallery space accompany a video work and game with an engaging sense of dystopian escapism. Behind the sheen of the user interface and display—where a demon-like character glides around a post-apocalyptic landscape collecting tokens—lies an uncomfortably hopeless tedium. The show alludes to impending social and environmental collapse with both fear and intrigue.**

Schwestern Sisters and Ittah Yoda’s exhibition Dance with the devil was on view at Galerija Močvara, Zagreb from March 1 to 8, 2019.
