----- NEWSLETTER AS SENT 26th JAN 2017: http://eepurl.com/czcwXz -----

SUMMARY: I'm interested in the impact of the digital upon the physical - in terms of the body, objects, sense of self, sense of place, sense of past, present & future. I explore this through photography, music, curatorial, selling and participatory projects and performance - online and offline. See me talking about my work in a 10 min video portrait made by Oona Friedrichs and Julian Beyer earlier this year HERE.

TWO MAJOR ONGOING PROJECTS:

1. #SERGINA - online/offline musical drag performances about the negotiation between the physical & digital body, explored via music, video and live performances. #Sergina performs both alone and with other bodies, often simultaneously in different places, linked up over Google Hangout and live broadcast via YouTube - and also music videos. For most of what #Sergina does, collaboration is key. Themes: #Identity #Drag #Simultaneity #OnlineOffline #PhysicalDigital

LIVESTREAM footage as it was shown via YouTube from An Orgy of Algorithims and Other Desires and Deviations, presented at Munich Academy of Fine Arts, November 2016. With Vladimir Bjelicic in Belgrade. Check out more images of this performance lecture on Sergina's Instagram.

2. THE GEORGE RICHMOND PORTRAIT PROJECT

A2_RuthandJosephLubbockinfrontoftheirhouse

Tracing portraits by my great great great grandfather George Richmond RA (1809-1896) to private homes - and to the same families that commissioned them - in order to photograph both the portraits and their current owners in situ. I am also conducting audio interviews with the people I am meeting, both about the portraits and the people in them. Themes: #Inheritance #Portraiture #VictorianEra #Family #BritishSociety
