An event exploring embodied experiences of illness, encounters with healthcare infrastructures and biomedical technologies by Sophie Hoyle.

at Jerwood Space

It features a new live work by Sophie Hoyle using biofeedback controlled videos, and a live set made in collaboration with musician Swan Meat (Reba Fay). Connecting a history of medical imagery used in music subcultures with genres such as EBM (Electronic Body Music) and Industrial, this work looks at the potential of noise music to evoke embodied experiences of trauma and its medical treatment.

A screening of artist moving-image works selected by Sophie Hoyle exploring chronic illness accompanies the live work. Confirmed artists in the programme include: Blue Maignien (Hortense) in collaboration with Sophie Morrison (Eye Measure) and Sidsel Meineche Hansen.

This event is free to attend. Booking is required via Eventbrite.
