            • Jeremy Wades latest work, titled Between Sirens, is a black comedy. Its also his ongoing research into the lack of care in a world that has increasingly become a drone of untenable violence, environmental degradation, and heightened economic abstraction. Between Sirens is a call to arms in response to the brutalizing neo-liberal agendas of self-optimization, self-improvement, and personal training in order to prove ones worth and survive the constant call for self-exploitation. We present Between Sirens, a political fictional, a fleeting spatial and temporal zone, a broken TV show, a mourning ritual, a political movement, a how-to guide for those who need to reenact forms of support that have been lost, and a machine for reproducing everything a person could possibly need in order to feel loved and cared for. The “tools and techniques we present optimize ones chance of surviving alone in a world where care and support systems are a thing of the past. In what seems to be a never ending global chorus of crisis, we offer a little pause, an oasis if you will, for those in need of a little support, join us, Between Sirens.

            • A Seance with Pamela takes place in front of the camera and on camera. The eponymous Pamela is an intermedia presence, who plays with representations of karaoke culture. In her world, there appear masked figures that allude to images of ecstatics, fallen saints, jesters and legendary cyberpunk characters. Pamelas world conjures up the zest for ritual and the unearthliness of the corporeal and ecstatic experience.

            • Pamela is a spectral being, in keeping with contemporary concepts of the New Ritual, based on capitalist fears of losing control over capital. Her ‘presence has provided a starting point for the project by Marta Ziółek a series of performative actions. Depending on the location and space, it is based on constant transformation of the formula of the performance. The project has had two editions to date: Pamela at the Gallery / as part of the exhibition Better Self (Zachęta August 2017, curator: Magda Komornicka) and Is It Pamela/Incarnations (Łódź of Four Cultures Festival September 2017).

        • BREAKING NEWS: THIS JUST IN ABOUT THE ENTITY FORMERLY KNOWN AS “SELF: IS FORGETTABLE, EXIGUOUS AND REDUNDANT TO LIFE

        • Combining todays desoulination technologies (web 2.0) with outmoded mid-century therapeutics, “WRIXLING is a form of participatory-psycho-surgery for the rescaling, off-railing, side-souping, and cross-hatcheting of the entity F.K.A. “self.

          Participant-Patients (PP) are invited to register for a private, 20-minute session with one of six Directors of Behavior (DB). Each DB is highly trained in the techniques of Wrixling, as well as individual specialties, including Gender Terracing, Transcursive Drawl, and the Empathic Spittoon. During the session, the PP is invited to cooperate upon their (im)personal histories, psychic-fault-lines, lingo-scaffolds, ancestral-fields, and fetish-nodes through a series of high-level language games and world-bending exercises. Sessions are hyper-paced, linguistically unsettling, experimentally intimate, and obscenely utopic.

        • Wrixling is commissioned and produced as part of Corpus, network for performance practice. Corpus is Bulegoa z/b (Bilbao), CAC (Vilnius), KW (Berlin), If I Cant Dance (Amsterdam), Playground (STUK & M, Leuven), and Tate Modern (London): www.corpus-network.org. Corpus is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.The performance is co-produced by Ujazdowski Castle Center for Contemporary Art in Warsaw.

      • Online television, YouTube channel PTV: Performance TV
        • Performance TV is based on setting up performative online TV and making a three-part video series. The video episodes will take the form of small-format television, and include a chat show with invited studio guests, on-camera performances by invited artists, poetry reading, animation, and reports from art events that are currently taking place in Warsaw. Each of the episodes will be themed on a different topic. Performance TV is live TV; it is intuitive and unconstrained by any self-imposed framework.
