Image Behaviour is the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA)’s annual convening dedicated to experiments in artists’ moving image, considering the intersectional, cross-disciplinary possibilities of the medium. Encompassing multi-screen projections, performances, music, workshops and discussions, the programme encourages a dynamic dialogue between artist and audience, as staged interventions interact with – and exist within – moving image environments. Alongside screenings of standalone works, many artists perform in or alongside their work – exploring the evolving role of moving image in the visual arts.
Unfolding in the ICA Theatre over five days, Image Behaviour presents new and recent works from several artists, some of them well know to CLOT Magazine: Nora Turato, Marianna Simnett, Hannah Quinlan + Rosie Hastings, Keiken, Lawrence Lek + Clifford Sage, Andros Zins-Browne, Lexachast (Amnesia Scanner, Bill Kouligas, Harm van den Dorpel), Ken Okiishi, Julie Béna, Patrick Staff, and others. Today 13th November, will see an evening of events, including live performances by Keiken and collaborators, and Lawrence Lek and Clifford Sage (aka Recsund and one of the most forward-thinking minds in the 3D visual arts discipline currently).
Lawrence Lek and Clifford Sage will present ProGeo, an audio-visual performance as part of their long-term ongoing collaboration. Working across sound and moving image, the artists incorporate gaming technology in creating live video work and their live-sequenced soundtrack.
Keiken and collaborators Sakeema Crook, Sophie Mars, Off World, Suzannah Pettigrew and George Jasper Stone present a live event, Feel(s) 360, in the ICA Theatre incorporating multi-screen projection, 360 video, gaming environments, sound and performance. This one-off event immerses the viewer in Keiken’s extended reality of collaborations and exchange by exploring the body and its relationship to new technologies. The event hosts the world debut of Off World’s interactive 360 Livestream.
