FEED.X at USINE C
Renowned for its extreme installations, kaleidoscopic effects, and unsettling psychedelic explosions, Hentschläger’s creations leave nobody indifferent. For its 20th anniversary, ELEKTRA will present Kurt Hentschläger’simmersive experience FEED.X (AT/US), from June 13 to 15 at 11 p.m. at Usine C. The public will be treated to the North American Premiere of a new, augmented version of the performance, which was previously presented more than 12 times at ELEKTRA under the name FEED.
FEED.X is a performative, totally immersive work focusing on the issue of the limits of human perception by alternating between sensory deprivation and sensory overload. The boundaries of internal and external perception fade away until all visual/spatial reference points are gone.
Transcendental, the work has often been described as a spiritual experience–there is a before and an after FEED. Finally, amateur and uninitiatedhttps://www.elektramontreal.ca/kurt-hentschlager spectators are invited to discover (or revisit) this absolutely unique experience. The number of places is limited. A liability release form must be signed by each spectator before entering the venue.
