OUTLANDS Network presents: Body Vice + Support
BodyVice is a new project by Natalie Sharp (Lone Taxidermist)
BodyVice takes biological and computational approach to sound art, investigating how chronic pain (experienced by the artist Natalie Sharp/Lone Taxidermist) can be communicated through hypermedia; combining the artforms of sound art, wearable and playable body sculptures, interactive video and performance. Natalie is working alongside sound artist Tara Pattenden aka Phantom Chips to create electronic micro controller body-instruments (skinstruments) and multi-instrumentalist, flautist Tida Bradshaw.
Lone Taxidermist is the utterly bizarre and otherworldly ruptured activity generated by Cumbrian musician, costume maker, skin decorator, performer and natural provocateur Natalie Sharp. Her performances manifest icons and deities drawn from the corners of the (Post-)Internet, with Sharp herself embodying and channelling ‘cake-sitting’ and new dominatrix tactics– all wrapped in plastic and smeared in whipped cream.
