“It’s hard to imagine a more vibrant expression of the burgeoning culture of Live Art and artist-led praxis of event creation in and around Brisbane...” – Realtime Arts 88
Hosted by artist run initiative EXIST and curated by Rebecca Cunningham and Nicola Morton, exist-ence is Brisbane’s premiere international festival dedicated to the presentation of live art, performance art and action art.
Winter Was Hardware mines for resonances that connect us to earth and the greater universe through bodily immersion/emergence and the keen contemporary rupture of knowing yet not being. Jule Vincent is currently completing an undergraduate Physics degree to complement his Art Honours in Embodiment and further an exploratory phenomenology of intimacy that might become integral rather than antithetical to an accelerated and streamlined humanity. Winter Was Hardware is a durational performance seeped in modern tensions - we do not yet understand what we have chosen, or indeed, who we are. Jule interrogates his own biological media to eviscerate and situate a relatedness perhaps we ourselves no longer embody.
