THE BLACKOUT ULTIMATUM

[Xprmntl Residency Program] 

5 Cross-disciplinary Artists Pairs. 3 Days and Nights. 5 Tentworks.

 

The Blackout Ultimatum is an experimental residency program where 10 artists

from as many disciplines / practices will live and create together in pairs

while co-existing in a compressed urban setting.

 

Each artist pair is given a tent as a canvas to explore possibilities

of tiny spaces as alternative living areas, artworks or interactive experiences.

However, time to create was limited to 72 hours to reflect the crunch of time in a metropolis.

 

The 5 tentworks created at the residency will be taken back

into the public space as a moving exhibition.

SONIC TENT by ALEC SCHACHNER

Alec designed his tent as an aurally reactive space. A playful area where every inch is immersed in touch-based interactivity resulting in a circus of sound. Also works as a reactive performance space. And, sensitive enough to be played just by wind!

BLACKOUT SET by DIYA SARKER & SUKRITI TYAGI

In a big city, it is difficult to find space to live, let alone, the liberty of having a working studio. Diya and Sukriti combined their skills of graphic design and film to produce 2 video pieces using the tent as their production studio.
