Thrashing Without Looking APHIDS

Thrashing Without Looking is an experiential work that combines performance with live cinema. A 3am ride through loneliness, frenzy, banality and cliché. A performance you can watch, create, perform and control. Created by the audience, for the audience, it involves video goggles, champagne and a lot of loud music.

Art Exhibition previously on at Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA) in Perth precinct, Western Australia, Australia.
From Wednesday 22 August 2012 to Saturday 25 August 2012

Aphids is an artist led cultural organisation creating collaborations across artforms and borders.

“It provoked all sorts of thoughts about the modes of disembodied communication we engage in now-televisual, internet-how trust and agency are still called upon and how intense and liberating is the sense of touch. I didn’t want to leave” – Fiona Mcgregor, Realtime, Issue 101

“It makes me clearly realise that no matter how much my contemporary perception is shaped by the intricate, informative pixilation of technology, nothing in the world will ever replicate that unmistakably visceral exchange that happens simply by being tenderly held” – Susie Hardgrave, Australian Stage

“The whole effect is disorientating, tender, a little scary, and utterly thrilling. The thoughts provoked linger with me long after we are gently ushered out.” – Miranda McCallum, Rhum Media
