Artist in Residence (AIR) Show: Yo-Yo Lin

$10 – $20

About this event

channels v1 is a performance exploring the intricate pathways of the body. Navigating the internal and external body, this performance channels the invisible, the sticky, the unknown, the body that deepens inward while simultaneously extending infinitely outward. This work asks, how can the body be a channel for healing amidst pain? What are the pathways that bring us to each other, in mutuality and care? This is the first iteration of the performance and will be presented in two parts: channel v1.1 investigates the internal pathways within the body: exploring the energetic channels of qi 氣 moving through the body as conceptualized by Chinese medicine, and the cyclical nature of the body living with chronic illness. Both seemingly invisible to the eye, the artist examines the illegibility of the body in illness, pain, and healing, combining poetry with animations derived from the artist’s ongoing ‘soft data’ archive. channel v1.2 explores external pathways of the body through movement and sound. Using wired microphones attached to the artist’s moving body, electronic musician Despina samples the creaking and crackling sounds of the artist’s connective tissue in motion, transmuting the sounds into a generative soundscape. In response, the artist dances to the music, manipulating the music through wearable motion sensors. Through deep listening, the duo engage in an interdependent feedback loop of music and dance– invoking crip, cyborgian imaginaries. channels v1 is an ongoing developing work, created throughout the course of the 2021-2022 BAX artist-in-residency. This work will be presented as a 3 part performance later this year on July 8th and 9th at The Shed as part of the 2020 Open Call performances.

Masks and proof of vaccination are required for this event.
