New York based artist and queer cinema pioneer Barbara Hammer premieres her new performance and multi-disciplinary work Evidentiary Bodies. Armed with portable, fixed and live projectors and cameras, the artist moves about the space projecting video onto inflated balloons, photographic prints, x-ray scans of her own body, as well as onto the bodies of the audience members. One person extends to many and many people extend to one, challenging the concept of the proscenium screen and the stable audience. The performance also includes live sound by Scott Norman Johnson on cello. The performance is followed by a presentation and discussion with the artist.
