Performance by Uma Breakdown 8pm
Installation open 22 September – 15 October, Thu-Sun 12-6pm

sybrntckmystx hack the sacred technologies of their progenitors, fantasizing within the recursive systems they constructed. Sci-fi pagan rituals graft the cybernetic to magickal, lithic to virtual and in this mangle the ancient diagrammatic technologies are rewritten to execute newly patched operations in altered states of collective mystk consciousness.

The deterritorialized magick systems upon and within which these mystx operate – sigils, automatic drawing, tarot, stone assemblages – undergo an attritional breakdown of their received functioning to form a chaotic magick of patchwork identity.

Enclave 1: Res. | The Future is a Collective Project

Jul 28 2017

The Future is a Collective Project
Waxing gibbous moon under Sagittarius (Wednesday 2 August)
7.00– 9.30pm

This is a participatory research group, akin to a reading group but not limited to texts. It is grounded in the question: Are we carrying the right tools to shape the future we want and need?

This session draws from the research of Wigan-based artist, Anna FC Smith, who is exploring the potency of karaoke as a space of jovial and unmediated humanity. Her current research in reference to this is on Greek Rebetiko music and its place as a popular space of expression and revellry within Greek society. We will be reading an essay by Yiannis Zaimakis called ‘Bawdy Songs and Virtuous Politics’ (2009) and listening to some Rebetiko.
