Voin de Voin
Future Forecast and Dr. Strangelove
Friday 13 November, 8pm, and Saturday 12 December 6-9pm
Tanya Leighton Gallery is pleased to present two new performances by Voin de Voin on Friday 13 November, 8pm and Saturday 12 December, 6-9pm. Voin's performance-based practice is primarily concerned with displacement and psycho-geography. Each performance is entirely unique and never repeated.
On Friday at 13 November at 8pm, Voin presents Future Forecast, in collaboration with Timothy Moore and a soundtrack by Gavin Russom, as an experiment examining two distinct positions: Time as embodied by presence, and the re-production of itself in the form of presence; proposing a time travel journey that explains the functionality of objects, and enlightens the pathway to the future.
"The future is a time period commonly understood to contain all events that have yet to occur. It is the opposite of the past, and is the time after the present. In the Occidental view, which uses a linear conception of time, the future is the portion of the projected timeline that is anticipated to occur. In special relativity the future is considered to be absolute future. The future is inhabited by light beings: the future mankind." -Voin de Voin
On Saturday 12 December 6-9pm, Voin will present his second performance, Dr. Strangelove: "A broken heart is forever! But it always sounds different!"
Born in 1978 in Sofia, Bulgaria, Voin de Voin studied visual arts, film and theatre in Amsterdam and Paris, and is currently based in Berlin. He has exhibited internationally, and has been featured in group shows at the Badischer Kunstverein, Karlsruhe; Living Art Museum, Reykevik; Kunsthalle Basel; and De Appel Arts Centre, Amsterdam.
