WE NEED MORE LASER!
Saturday 12th May
Working in the fields of audiovisual performance, video and soundart, Dutch artist Heidi Hörsturz studied at the Artez University of the Arts in the Netherlands, specialising in Media Arts. In recent years she’s both performed and exhibited at festivals and events in Europe and USA, including the Fantoche Festival, Athens Digital Arts Festival, European Media Art Festival and the Miami New Media Festival. Describing herself as a media-artist, Hörsturz’s animations, live shows and installations combine contemporary art and modern trash aesthetics.
Striving for an artificially constructed world, in this work the repression of self-reflection with an audiovisual brain attacks! A thematic emphasis of this work is the desire of contemporary society to become overstimulated in a world of rapidly shrinking attention spans.
