Gwangju Theater


In Gwangju Theater, Korea’s oldest operational cinema, Judy Radul’s immersive installation and performance challenges the schematic refrains of image production in both a technological and biological sense. Heat will guide the dimension of visual perception and a live musical performance will accompany thermal cameras scanning bodies for an organic and mechanistic symmetry. What does it mean to ‘hijack’ a technology that usually appears in connection with weaponry, border regimes, fever scanning, or ghost hunting? The notations of ‘being screened’ and ‘screening’ are put into play through ironic and unexpected ways.
