The Politics Of Healing, DESTROYING SILENCE

“After the rise of a hate-inducing-virus starts taking over our world’s population, Cathara-Insur-gent-magic-dancing-warriors; visit our world to implement their healing forces. Traveling in time fold-ing vessels in a curative quest. They use Shostakovich’s 7th Symphony with their sonic technology, as a military weapon to combat the virus. A concept realized by Elektra KB building an immersive environment including textiles, sound and video; together with James Moore’s concrete and neon sculptural work. Which engages the public with the formal impact of a destroyed wall in a utopic-dystopic, anti-authoritarian hospital room.”—Elektra KB
