About Encounter no. 1 - Sogol Mabadi and Emma Helen Reid

Preview: Thu 12 Jul, 7pm – 9pm, sponsored by Tyree Gin
Exhibition open: Fri 13 Jul - Sun 29 Jul // Thu - Sun, 12 – 6pm

'Encounter no. 1' is a joint endeavour by Sogol Mabadi and Emma Helen Reid and is intended to be the first of many collaborations. The project was selected as part of CCA’s Intermedia programme and will be hosted by The Pipe Factory.

Through sculpture, writing, performance, and video, Mabadi and Reid mobilise efforts to alert viewers and participants to the role of the body, including internal landscapes, in our digitised era.

Their new works consider the implications that digitisation and contemporary communication technologies have on the experience of being in your body and on the ways you encounter another.

Throughout 'Encounter no. 1', the central components of privacy - solitude, intimacy, anonymity, and reserve - resonate. Care is important. By “resuscitating the corporeal” in our new media environment they explore ways of experiencing being-there and being-with.

Out with exhibition opening times there will be a series of performances of Mabadi and Reid’s new collaborative work, 'I welcome this opportunity to get to know you, stranger'.

Performances of 'I welcome this opportunity to get to know you, stranger' (booking essential*)

Friday 20 July, 11am

Saturday 21 July, 11am

Monday 23 July, 6pm

*There are four places available on each performance. To book a place, please speak to the artists while they invigilate the exhibition, or email encountercollab@gmail.com
