C A R R \ ON

Join us in the galleries for a live performance by Justin Shoulder with an accompanying live score by Corin Ileto as part of ACCA’s exhibition Feedback Loops.

Justin Shoulder emerges as Carrion, a chimeric creature, in a performance that compels us to consider post-human embodiment in our state of planetary disarray. As a continuation of Shoulder’s repertoire of bestiary, Phasmahammer, this hybrid human/animal/cyborg delves into ancient wisdoms, the mess of the present and polymorphous complexity of a speculative future. Carrion: Episodes are part of Shoulder’s club performance series and the greater ongoing body of work Carrion.

Tonight’s forecast, increasing clouds, mind fog ~ routine escape.

A feeling of portent in the lower hemisphere>>>>>>

A high pressure system of wealth and power with a focus on efficiency /././././

A 50% chance of clearing, although we see here a high chance of collapse

A cold front producing severe weather *coral bleaching*

A self eating system

Potential for new fascist leadership

But also a shift in consciousness.

Familial communion

Life and death.
