Trial by Fire
Sunday 23 December @ Nieuwe Vide | 21:00
Nikki Hock is a multidisciplinary artist who sculpts the spaces and environments around us to create experiential landscapes. In Trial by Fire, Hock aims to achieve this very sense of satisfaction through a totalising and overwhelming experience. Surrounded by abstracted and distorted visuals of natural forces and catastrophes, the artist’s intention is to immerse the spectator in a new kind of landscape. With generative mapped visuals, Hock transports the audience into a vacuum of chaos and catastrophe. The sound composition creates catharsis via channels of tension, obscurity, and imposed randomness; instruments are run through various modifiers to obstruct a clear signal or phrase.
