Vicki will be on a panel about sampling at Splice Festival at Rich Mix in London at 7.30pm on 26 May 2017.

Sampling in AV : Panel Discussion

With archives opening up and online memes and supercuts now commonplace, has video sampling finally come of age? A discussion panel around the use and abuse of audiovisual sampling and it’s many challenges faced by artists working in this genre, whether creative, technical or legal. Ben Sheppee of Light Rhythm Visuals chairs the panel and discusses issues with some of the pioneers of the art-form.

NYC Screening of People Like Us documentary

Spectacle Theater, Brooklyn
7th October 2016 from 7.30pm

The premiere NYC screening of Nothing Can Turn Into A Void – An Art Apart: a documentary about Vicki Bennett/People Like Us will screen in a double bill with Change Itself – An Art Apart: Genesis Breyer P-Orridge.

A documentary focusing on the British artist Vicki Bennett and her project People Like Us. Her work takes you on a journey into a world where literally anything can happen. Using her skills as an editor and a great sense of humor, she lets you roam through a world of imagination filled with contrasts and chance encounters between the past and the present. In performances, video work, music and collages, Bennett conveys that nothing is really what it seems. TRAILER: https://vimeo.com/131277139

To sum up the life and work of British artist Genesis Breyer P-Orridge is close to impossible. Not only because of the wide range of artistic disciplines, but also because of the timespan, since the mid 1960s to the present day, that has been saturated by hundreds of records, thousands of concerts, exhibitions, interviews, videos, spoken word performances, collages, sculptures, philosophy, cultural engineering, occultism and radical transgender concepts. A couple of descriptions are still valid after these 50 years of active creativity and provocation. P-Orridge is a romantic existentialist and a cultural engineer. Everything is both work as such and seed for cultural and behavioral change. TRAILER: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/changeitself
