Isabella Lee Arturo: Tabula Rasa

WED 6.9. 16:00 – 16:30 POSTCITY, Campus | Performance
THU 7.9. 17:30 – 18:00 POSTCITY, Campus | Performance

The installation and performance consist of a live drawing that the artist makes on the floor, while trying to verbally express a message. This message is recorded with a wireless microphone and transmitted to a program that activates a language model generator. The AI simultaneously tries to translate and censor the message. This work is intended as a metaphor for the resistance against forced silencing and how precarious tools can both challenge dominant narratives and lift one’s voice.

Isabella Lee Arturo is a Colombian transdisciplinary artist. Her practice transits through traditional and new media, such as drawing, programming and performance. Her work focuses on the failure of communication and resistance to forced silencing. An important part of her work is inspired by the poetry of the collapse of systems.
