Synchronous Errors is an experimental, non-profit event at the intersection of curatorial, sound and performative practices. It supports a constellation of emerging and established artists & DJs to collaborate and establish synergies. This Friday 4th March they are taking up FOLD for their first night of clubbing experimentation.
The collective poses the audience is this an exhibition, is this a party? Who knows and really…who cares?
Rebecca Salvadori, one-third of the experimental art collective TQS, will be presenting The sun has no shadow, the first chapter of her upcoming feature-length documentary film built on an archive of over 10 years (2010-2022 ) of experimental music documentation within London’s diverse cross-functional environments and music scenes.
Salvadori is a London-based Italo-Australian video artist with a long trajectory of filming environments with a focus on non-hierarchical/chronological layering and sequencing of audio to footage. In The sun has no shadow, the fragmentation of the visual experience, practices of self-observation and the tradition of portraiture are some of the reflections surrounding Salvadori’s visual research.
Developing further what already learned with the film collection Rave Trilogy (2020), The sun has no shadow deepens more into electronic music communities building a visual journey across a series of raves, clubs and experimental live performances; different stories portrayed under a very subjective and intimate frame, blending together nocturnal landscapes and shots of people dancing with conscious and reflective conversations.
Oscillating between being both participant and observer, Salvadori wishes to keep the individual relations at the fulcrum of this research. Throughout the film, a vast array of perspectives will be offered, mixing a series of different accounts with more universal reflections such as matters of general existence and vision of life.
The event, curated by Adriana Leanza, will also include installations and artwork interventions by the Polish–Lithuanian duo, based in Switzerland, Dorota Gawęda & Eglė Kulbokaitė who have recently been awarded the arts at CERN Collide residency, Afro-Peruvian multidisciplinary artist Bryan Giuseppi Rodríguez Cambana, Kate Dunn who’s been exploring light-specific installation and UV reactive materials to manipulate the display of her paintings and create a confrontation with the viewer and Barcelona-based Albert Salvador. With extended DJ sets by Special Request and Jasmine Infiniti.
