Warm up for Halloween with a visit to Paddington’s Cement Fondu. Until Sunday, November 25, Warm Bodies takes over the gallery with an array of irreverent and challenging explorations of horror, rot, mutation, destruction and post-apocalyptic existence.
Expect analogue photography, ceramics, projections, dance, digital glitch textiles, .GIFs, installations and Muslim black death metal. Leading the program is Haunted House — a .GIF installation that will take over Cement Fondu’s mezzanine level with adaptations of scenes from B-grade horror films, as created by American artist Jaimie Warren in collaboration with the KARI Foundation Indigenous Youth Group.
Meanwhile, dance artist Angela Goh will present the Australian premiere of Body Loss, an artwork that combines live performance, sound and light in its exploration of the female voice in folklore, film and culture. Look out, too, for a multi-media installation by London-based Adham Faramawy, whose Make Up Tutorial (2018) will appear among two new site-specific vinyl adhesive wallpapers. The program also includes a Halloween party from 7pm on Saturday, November 3.
