Warpoem II: Warehouse

Jun 7, 2008



Western Front


Julie Louise Bacon’s Warpoem is a performance series of eight planned works. It is an exploration of the impact of technology on culture, including its influence over the space of intimacy, social ritual, and history. Each site-specific work is composed around the figure of eight: there are eight objects, eight actions, and eight interactions with the audience.

It is a principle of the works that they are not visually documented. The only visual traces that remain are of the elements and sites used. These are accompanied by performance scores and writings.

Bacon performed the second of the series, Warpoem II: Warehouse at Western Front as part of Manifestation :: Agitation.

Curated by Natalie Loveless.
