Corin Sworn and Claricia Parinussa

eco-co-location

A business park in the Clyde Valley

Saturday 27 November 2021

Corin Sworn and Claricia Parinussa will present eco-co-location – a live one-off performance in a vacant office space within a near-empty suburban business park. Emerging through physical and verbal discussions, the performance explores dispersed sensation and variously suspended and compressed timeframes in response to this lapsed infrastructure of late capitalist administration.

Within the vast, stripped-out space Sworn and Parinussa draw attention to the enormous cloudscape beyond. Clouds, employed as signifiers of data storage, insinuate connection between the material world and the complex concealed processes of corporate industries which, while remaining hidden and obscured, present as insubstantial, almost transcendent, ephemeral non-places.

This is the first in a series of five events entitled ‘Moving in Relation’ through which Sworn continues to research human interrelationships with technology. Working with dancers, academics and 'robot vision' equipped cameras, Sworn is developing a discursive and experimental event series that explores algorithmic thought, datafication and their influence on physical bodies while seeking to make obscure knowledge immanent and palpable.
