Fellow Montevidayoan in London? Here's Your Art-Infections

by on Apr.19, 2011

I just found out that the Spill Festival of Performance‘s theme this year is infection, and infection being my favorite theme ever I had to share Robert Pacitti’s curatorial note:

This year SPILL has been curated around notions of infection. Performance presents us with multiple layers of ideas, images and politic, but how do we – the audience – receive these live transmissions? Does information simply arrive in straight lines, making the same sense to each of us? Or does it cross-pollinate with our own individual experiences, contaminating each personal reading to form new hybrid knowledge?….Amongst the programme are large ambitious stage works, small delicate interventions, stunning installations, a SPILL Thinker in Residence, infected artist talks, contaminated salons, paranoid film, contagious music, a party, and even a backstage feast….SPILL spreads like an epidemic of ideas across this Easter – be sure to catch it. Now wash your hands.

Harminder Singh Judge, Self Portrait after Kali and Gene

April 18-23 at the Barbican. There is a lot going on including the SPILL tarot and a screening of “The Invasion of the Body Snatchers” and “The Blob”. For instance. Harminder Judge will explore the occult’s influence on popular culture with an unholy immersion.
