Artist Celeste Juliet Aldahn will present a reading of text-work in development for Techno-Pagan Battleground. Set against sound work by Sydney-based artist Del Lumanta, Techno-Pagan Battleground explores the continuum between projected and 'real life' bodies and examines concepts of power and sexuality.
Aldahn is an artist, musician and performer in-residence at Artspace from South Australia. She graduated from UniSA in 2011 and has since exhibited nationwide, most recently, Sploshing! at 55 Sydenham Rd, Sydney and Maiden, Mother, Crone at Blindside Gallery, Melbourne. Working across sculpture, installation, performance and music, her current research concerns representations of power, the erotic and the female body in contemporary popular, counter and girl culture, and intersections with new age spirituality.
Del Lumanta is an artist and musician from Sydney, currently undertaking her MFA at Sydney College of the Arts. She has exhibited and performed in Sydney and Melbourne, curated the mini-festival Symptoms of Failure at Firstdraft, Double Vision at the Museum of Contemporary Art and produces for FBi Radio’s art and ideas program Canvas. She is currently curating the second series of Double Vision, a showcase of Australian experimental and DIY music at Verge Gallery, Sydney.
