Tranimal Tracks / Take Cover
This performance is part of Performing Home
25 NOVEMBER, 6.30PM - 10PM
I will be performing an soundtrack of soundscapes inspired by or used in my art practice over the years, starting with sounds from my first solo exhibition "Conversations between father and son (2010)" at The Substation Gallery. This soundtrack will be a rumination of sounds recorded for the pieces, live recordings during these pieces and improvised/memorised flow of articulations at the present. Catch me if you can.
About Marla Bendini
“Marla Bendini” was created in 2007 as an amalgamation between art and life, to explore multiple liminal identities and fluidity in perspectives. Her multidisciplinary approach towards this amalgamation has become a signature form of hypervisibilty, using the existing politicized body as a catalyst and vehicle for further discourse. She seeks to both engage and disarm audiences and to bridge the present to what she envisions to be an inevitable trans/post-human condition. Her first self-titled exhibition Marla. (2008) was presented in a transsexual bar in Pattaya, Thailand. Sponsored by Fridae.com, Asia’s largest LGBT portal, she presented Conversations between father and son (2010), a multimedia installation-performance supported by The Substation Gallery, Singapore. Since then, she has been very active in Singapore’s queer and cultural scene, organising and participating in numerous group exhibitions and performance art festivals such as Future of Imagination and R.I.T.E.S. Her last solo exhibition I’m Nervous, presented by Grey Projects was organised in conjunction with the 10th edition of IndigNation, Singapore’s longest running LGBT festival. She has performed and exhibited in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Macau, Sweden, Spain and the United States of America.
