(UK) ➣ Installation
Neo Fung is Piotr Bockowski (1983, Poland). He has lived and worked between London and Hong Kong since 2008. Since 2009 he has worked as a body performer and art model and has worked at Goldsmiths College since 2017.
Synthetic Organs explores an idea of body-therapy that links psychopathology with physiological deformities. Recognition of the monstrous glands through TOUCH & SCREAM is the new body identity as well as an expression of an imaginary trauma.
The sound of the traumatic body of the performer Neo Fung is amplified & deformed by noise artist Richard Crow.
Synthetic organs are discharged as miscarried brood, retarded bastard problem-children, lured by aggressive rage and desperate cries of perverted cannibalism or semi-erotic tenderness of breastfeeding the ancestral parasite.
These are artists who want to push you as a listener, viewer, toucher, taster. They feel the competing powers that define human and inhuman experience and press this open the audience. This is work that requires the presence of the artist and the engagement – sometimes submission – of the public. Your senses will thank you for the embrace that is DELIQUIUM.
