From November 21 – 25, Wendt + Dufaux will join *(s)twerH in the gallery to create an improvisational performance drawing on their shared interests in apparatuses of the invisible: aerodynamics, technologies, temporality and relationships to labour and the body.
Sarah Wendt + Pascal Dufaux share an art practice that takes form in sculpture, media art, installation and dance. Since 2016, they have developed and presented projects that turn a lens onto the body, space and objects. Their collaborative methodology seeks to imbue their projects with strange forms of temporality and heightened articulations of labour to draw forward an environment that melds science fiction to reality. In their work, moving images meet choreography and sculpture to create a world where motion as material loosens and reframes the value of human energy. Their work has been presented at artist-run centres, art museums and dance festivals in Canada, Belgium and in the UK. They live and work as uninvited guests on the traditional land of the Haudenosaunee, Mohawk and St. Lawrence Iroquoian in Tiohtiá:ke/Mooniyang/Montreal.
