Kinetica fair to explore digital art

A percussive penguin; a dead bird attached to a light bulb; an enormous robotic bull-type figure and a performance artist constructing an extra ear on his forearm are just a few of the exhibits on show at next month’s Kinetica Art Fair.

Now in its third year, the London exhibition explores kinetic, electronic, robotic, sound, light, time-based and interdisciplinary new media art, and will feature works from digital and interactive designers including Tomomi Sayuda and duo Cécile Colle and Ralf Nuhn.

This year’s event aims to explore ‘the evolution of body, brain, mind and consciousness’.

The highlights include a film screening of Onedotzero’s Robotica – a selection of films on the ethics and social effects of a world shared with robots.

Also on show will be David Cranmer’s Brian the Penguin, a penguin sculpture with various percussive items incorporated into his body; Christina Saradopoulou’s mechanical sculptures; Tim Lewis’ man-animal-machine hybrid sculptures and Stelarc, an Australian performance artist presenting Ear on Arm, his ongoing construction of an extra ear on his forearm.

Kinetica Art Fair will take place from 4 – 6 February at Ambika P3, 35 Marylebone Rd, London, NW1
