'I AM THE BEAT' DESIRE NIGHTS AT IMMA MUSEUM
I AM THE BEAT *THE HOLY MOUNTAIN CHANGING PLACES
Continuing on her Sentient Series and the workBLUSHING, PINK AS FUCK, Londi creates a site-specific installation I AM THE BEAT (The HolyMountain Changing Places) responding to the theme of Desire: A Revision from the 20th Century to the Digital Age and the work of VALIE EXPORT.Consisting of a custom made photochromic sheet inhabited by two moving bodies, the installation takes the form of a white mountain, or a loosely covered animated sculpture.
The installation is placed on the upper left side of the room overlooking the spectators, who are invited to sit on the floor and faces the end wall of the room where the projection of films and paintings takes central place.
As the first screening begins, the lights are gradually lowered until the spectator is immersed in red light.The imagery on the screen changes from sexually implicit to explicit. The atmosphere is intimate.
The mountain presents itself as glowing matter,electrified, bioluminescent like a jellyfish emitting lights.
The crowd engages with the film, incited, aroused,provoked. The light flashes back on. There is an interval.
Now the mountain reappears in a harsh artificial white light, like the deflated costume of a naïve ghost, crumpled, its pointy edges softened, flat.
