The Black Box Sessions

  • This exhibition has concluded.

Created by the 2011 artist-in-residence, Alex DaviesThe Black Box Sessions presented a spectacle writ large in the intimacy of a personal theatre.With a kind of uncanny voyeurism, the environment he created upended the dominant dimensions of visual perception.

Brave audience members experienced unique performances in a pitch-black space by a talented troupe of international entertainers, captivating crooners and burlesque beauties. Drawing on surveillance technology and notions of peepshows, the performances were viewed via an infrared camera and monitor system in an installation environment which shifted the relationship between performer and spectator.
