Chronotopic Invocation 1: Profane Articulations of the Autosarcophagic Orchestra (BZZHHHHJT!!!) A new participatory work to disorientate political sloganing through popular viewership and performance.

 

“My work connects personal anecdote, occult ritual/symbology, and references to popular culture, sub-cultures and art history.” –Joey Ryken in conversation with Amy McDonnell and Ying Tan

 

For ‘Towards Common Ground’, a series of performance and moving-image works at Clapham Common Bandstand, Joey Ryken will present a participatory performance work entitled Chronotopic Invocation 1: Profane Articulations of the Autosarcophagic Orchestra (BZZHHHHJT!!!). The work is designed to disorientate packaged, political sloganing through highly theatricalised populist performance within public space. This act will attempt to propose new territories of the social in the radicalisation of knowledge production.
