The artist Shu Lea Cheang looks for local collaboration and co-play!!

Besides being known as a wild card media
artist, Shu Lea directed a Japanese scifi porn, I.K.U. (feature
dv-35mm, 2000, premiered at Sundance Film
festival)(http://www.i-k-u.com)
for which she has gained a cult film
director notority  and continues to have impact on cyberpunk
scene.
For Hangar residency, she will be working
on UKI, a sort of IKU sequal to be developed as episodic Cinema Live
Mix. UKI reverse IKU’s "This is Sex, This is not love"
slogan to" This is Love, this is not sex". The sex replicant
resurfaces from IKU orgasmo data doom, unleashes her virus self, spams
and spanks her love into the contested territories.

UKI is her attempt to mingle with software
and body virus for cinematic remix.
Sh’s interested in working with virus
writing/hacking, PD patches with live input, public intervention via
wifi gadgets. Aiming for one hour live VJ/DJ performance format, she
looks for barcelona hardcore and soft-grammers
to co-play…
