3 concerts, 1 EXHIBITION, 2 WORKSHOPS, 4 DAYS...
Kinetic presents [ I N T I M A T E ] - a multi-arts exploration of intimacy featuring a host of international reputable artists from sonic, visual and performance disciplines. Taking place in Salford at The White Hotel, Partisan, and exciting brand new venue FloMak Elegance, this is our most ambitious and exciting project to date.
Such a diverse topic lends itself to such a wide variety of perspectives, and that’s precisely what we’ve gone for - expect thrill, joy, affection, awkwardness, unease and more as we explore proximity, touch, affection, relationships, sharing, togetherness, personal space, privacy, familiarity, sensuality, voyeurism, surveillance and more. Audiences won’t just be spectators, but participating and actively informing/influencing results, so expect fascinating, engaging and often interactive experiences that embrace a social, communal and inclusive modern art approach.
We’re super excited about the amount of quality on the table and as always, we are proud to balance our support between local emerging artists, and those more established nationally / internationally. From the fun of interacting with Aviva Endean/Dan Gorkinfel’s Space Guitar and witnessing the marshmallow-fuelled chaos of Larry Goves’ happy/boomf/fat, to more serious notions of voyeurism and surveillance with Stephen Bradshaw’s Panoptic #4b and Merel Theloesen’s Lovers, to the ultra-delicate, sensory-heightening close encounter of Charlie Sdraulig’s 3-day performance installation ‘one to one’ - there is something to be found for everyone, and we look forward to seeing you all in Salford for what promises to be a very special 4 days.
