Sam George & Lisa Radford
The Master of the Scrovegni Chapel Choir presents Kylie White’s Manifesto of an Electronic Relationship
14 - 21 December, 2019 | 15 - 25 January, 2019
Performance Saturday the 25th of January, 2020 at 4pm.
Using the manuscript of an affair conducted over email between 11 April and December 25, 2011 - George & Radford find a materiality in the space between Melbourne and San Diego
mediated by technology in plaster, pigment, voice and time.
The performance is an atomised opera that uses the time the emails were sent to explore that space of desire and doubt in an oral form.
Our opera singer chants the verbal descriptions of the attachments (literal and figural) mostly images, that Kylie and David send to each other over the 9 month period which
Kylie White’s manifesto publishes.
Currently on display in the gallery is 25 frescoes, all works are plaster and lapis lazuli on linen, measuring 40 x 30 cm each and made in 2019.
