Moving pictures create a scene at Artstation

Artstation Gallery sets the scene for Mematopia, a new video and performance installation, from 17 to 20 August 2004.

Mematopia, by Auckland-based choreographer Brent Harris and American video artist Tyler Fox, explores and reveals interactions within the urban landscape and the everyday. Fleeting conversations and connections are played out between spaces, bodies, speech, time and sound.

Dancers Brent Harris and Paul Young perform live with video alter egos. Heather Logopati's singing threads the dancers’ movements with the video projections and soundtrack compiled by Tyler Fox.

Mematopia is supported by Auckland City’s Creative Communities funding.

Mematopia performance information: Performers: Brent Harris, Tyler Fox, Paul Young, Heather Logopati Performance: 8pm, Tuesday 17 to Friday 20 August Tickets: $6 Bookings: ph (09) 845 2363

Artstation, Auckland City’s community visual arts facility, is located at the old police barracks at 1 Ponsonby Rd, Newton. It is easy to get to by public transport with the Link’s ‘Artstation’ bus stop right outside.
