My coincidental encounter My tender tight TIME OUT Alice Peragine’s performances and mixed-media installations are aesthetic experimental arrangements. The various components refer to control and monitoring mechanisms as well as the effects of digitization on individual bodies. With the aim of putting the conditions for a free scope of action up for debate, Peragine explores the relationship between the public and private space, analyzes signs of hierarchical structures and translates symbols of institutional power into the visible and tangible realm.
Her exhibition titled Safety Zone refers to safety elements and rescue measures used to protect the human body. Peragine addresses given dependencies between the human being and the machine by creating an installation setting that reflects moments of loss of control and the collision of body and technology. The exhibition at VIS is opened by a performance titled Translucent. It examines the relationship between the body and information in order to capture “the mutual constitution and indeterminacy of embodied configurations.” (Elizabeth Grosz).
