Artist Kite presents, ‘L-Sys’ (Lakota System) on Thursday, June 10, 2021 at 8pm EDT (7pm CST) at Cameron Studios and live-streamed on Tulsa Artist Fellowship Vimeo. Click here to stream this free online event on Vimeo on the day of the event. Music will begin at 9pm EDT (8pm CST).
This presentation is a co-production between Kamloops Art Gallery, Kamloops, BC and Tulsa Artist Fellowship. Programming will be transmitted live, gallery to gallery. This is where Listener begins: with a wanderer Listening, an Oglala woman, equipped with Listening devices, which are passed down from woman to woman. Alone, her devices work in ways she cannot quite understand, they seem to listen farther than technologically possible, beyond time and place. She has a suspicion that she is receiving scrambled transmissions from a good place, but a Far Place. She feels they Listen back. This growing and changing shape is projected during performance, constructed from shapes traditionally only used and created by Lakota women. The movement and growth of this projection is decided by the computer.
