Event: Helene Kazan “From Above and Below”
28 February 2015 (The Mosaic Rooms)
“From Above and Below” brings together a series of investigations into the shifting parameters of contemporary warfare. With the intention to not only convey the position or physical viewpoint — from above — which the state apparatus utilises as part of modern day conflict, exemplified by the use of armed drones and aerial bombing. In particular this event focuses on the position — from below — mobilising the domestic arena as a platform, and as a material and human register of this perceivable external threat. Realised by artist and PhD researcher Helene Kazan.
