A PERFORMANCE / INSTALLATION OF LATEX, BREATH AND BODY

This performance / installation piece explores the machinery of the human body through mythology and fetishism. Multiple performers are encased in an airtight latex column; Adam creates a vacuum with his own breathing, forming a three-dimensional frieze. The human forms are dehumanised as the latex is sucked tightly around them turning them into living sculptures.


Adam Electric explores fetish and mythology in his vacuumed latex performance / installations. Adam creates and performs in sculptural pieces that distort and restrain the human form. He blurs the line between the living performer and the inanimate materials as the two become interconnected.
