Artist, Debris Facility is a conglomerate entity inhabiting one human body. Operating across sculptural installation, performance and wearable works, Debris Facility works from a parasitic framework, taking on other life forms, situations and spaces through processes of accumulation and mutation.
In this new responsive installation im/material entanglements of the administration of control and haptic pleasures work with and against each other. Through mutations of consumer objects that are typically kept close to the body, De/Afficiency re-organ-ises biological systems, reframing and shaping the body’s social presence.
This event is part of BODY, a new major project from Arts House in partnership with Midsumma Festival amplifying the voices of trans, gender diverse and intersex peoples.
Supported by – Debris Facility Pty Ltd. BODY is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, and the Besen Family Foundation.
