Auto Italia’s My Skin Is At War With A World of Data is included in the group exhibition SECRET SURFACE, opening at KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin this Saturday, 13th February. Departing from the traditional coordinates of the occidental worldview, the exhibition SECRET SURFACE asks where – and more importantly, how – meaning may materialise.
My Skin Is At War With A World of Data is a project by Kate Cooper, Marianne Forrest, Andrew Kerton and Jess Wiesner – produced by Auto Italia – which was originally commissioned as part of Artissima LIDO, 2012 and has been exhibited in various iterations since at CIC Cairo, Hessel Museum New York and RCA London amongst others. My Skin Is At War With A World of Data is a collaboration with Director of Photography, Theo Cook; sound by Nathan Budzinski; and featuring performers Marleen Boschen, Nat Cary, Mette Juhl, Pablo Navarro MacLochlainn and Rachel Pimm.
