In the dark days of the New Year, January and February 2017, Wind and Weather gallery present The Presence, an artist performance series in three parts featuring the Oracle, the Consultant, and the Masseuse. Each role will be representative of different aspects of presence. Varying formats will mediate the scene, which will be filmed and live-streamed, as well as projected at locations in Reykjavik and abroad. The window will act as a portal to elsewhere, just as video spans dimensions, present yet infinitely distantThe series will begin with the Madame Lilith, the oracle and deer messenger in her throne, passing from this world to another through the medium of video in the body of Ásdís Sif Gunnarsdóttir. The Oracle brings information about infinite presence with the help of tools to carry the information. When the Oracle is not present in body, she will be present through video. In Ásdís’ previous incarnations of performance she has used video to explore perception and the projection of the poetic imagination onto objective representations. In collaboration with artist, Kathy Clark, the Oracle arrives in this dimension by way of set and setting. Through infinite presence, we see how different layers of mediation are played out in reality.
