    Event description

    Beginning at the site of the mouth and expanding out to encompass the entire architecture, Body Loss transforms the limits of the body and the structures that contain it.Β Β 

    'Somewhere there is a Siren.Β 
    Beginning with the utterance of a single note recorded into a looping device, she listens for the return of her own voice. Once heard, she responds with the same note again, and again, echoing herself until these single notes have grown into an endless chorus, a swarm, a sea, a body. Her voices fill the room with an ethereal presence, escaping into the world, untethered. Back on the ground, the body. Her mouth now fixed open in the shape of an β€˜O’, as if the chorus of voices is forever streaming out all at once, or like they never came from her, to begin withβ€”as if an unconvincing lip-sync has been revealed and suddenly the synchronisation of body and voice no longer match upβ€”and something is no longer right.'

    Created and performed by Angela Goh,Β Body Loss was acquired by the University of Melbourne in 2024. This performance by the artist marks the first presentation of the work at Buxton Contemporary. Commissioned by Auto Italia,Β Body Loss has been exhibited in London, Munich, Brussels, Austin, Melbourne, Sydney and Zurich.Β 

    Buxton Contemporary will be open from 6:30pm with the performance commencing from 7pm.Β 

    Stay tuned for further performances during the exhibition season.Β
