Decolonise Meteoric Mix is a site-specific performance devised by artist and DJ Chooc Ly Tan, and energized by Christopher Kirubi (Vogue dancer), Audrey Lauro (saxophonist), Bgirl Stormy (breakdancer) and B-boy (dancer).
The piece explores the shifting meaning of chemistry applicable in mixology, dance, music and collective transformation. It references the hybrid and reactive nature of chemical associations, by including a dance battle, cocktail consumption and an explosive phenomenon.
This new AV performance will be punctuated by scientific thoughts and groovy beats, before leading to an installation: an anagram – letters made of neons, forming a message highlighting an optimism for the future.
Chooc Ly Tan is an Artist, DJ & Voyager, in residence on Planet Earth.
Her practice sets out to use systems or tools that are used to understand the world, such as logic or physics, but subvert them to suggest new visions of reality. With a penchant for electronic music Tan’s DJ sets present a varied selection, forging astral connections through spectrums of Techno, arabic futuristic club music, Afrobeat, through to fusions we haven’t found names for yet.
Recently her work has been shown at Minsheng Art Museum, Beijing, China; Artičok, Prague, Czech Republic; Gasworks, London, UK; ART Rotterdam, The Netherlands ; Neutral Ground Contemporary Art Forum, Canada; CCA, Glasgow, UK; OK Centre for Contemporary Art, Austria; Festival of Ideas, Cambridge, UK; Fuso International Video Art Festival, Lisbon, Portugal; Milano Film Festival, Milan, Italy; School Hut, Kilimanjaro, Tanzania; Whitechapel gallery, London, UK.
