Forum of Sensory Motion

 

2017, The inaugural year of Forum of Sensory Motion, the nomadic iteration of KochiAIR, an artist residency established by Lichen Kelp and Dylan Martorell in Kerala, India in 2014.

 

In June - July 2017 FSM traveled with artists Belle Bassin, Nathan Gray, Dylan Martorell, Lichen Kelp, and Michael Candy, dancer Benjamin Hancock and writer, curator and publisher, Helen Hughes.

Based in Athens, Kithera and Serifos  over a period of six weeks these diverse practitioners will engage collaboratively with the public and each other creating improvised communities and radical experimentation.

 

These artists and musicians will use streets, airwaves, gallery and digital media to create a common noosphere of sensory activity incorporating robotics, interactive electronics, public lectures, wearable art, kinetic sculpture, performative chemistry and workshops.

Performing live to a score by Dylan Martorel, Benjamin Hancock presents his solo work WITCH, engaging in practises of transformation, possession and integration to realise the ever-changing potentialities of the body.

These occurrences are placed in specialised public areas, interrupting prescribed rituals of how the body should operate in such spaces.

WITCH is a continuation of site specific performances seeded from the nomadic artist residency group Forum of Sensory Motion.
