Evgenia Emets and Nao Masuda
Saturday, 9 April at 4 pm
Address: The Crypt Gallery (St Pancras), Euston Rd, London NW1 2BA
Evgenia Emets and Nao Masuda will perform a new piece from an art sound project Atta-Anatta. The piece has been inspired by the two performers exploring and playing with sound, resonance, vibrations which they regard as elements that affect our perception of boundary, colour, space, time, form, possibly taste.
At the Crypt Gallery the pair will be tuning into its unique space, architecture and aural qualities, to unfold a journey guided by sounds that reverberate through everything and everybody that happens to be in the space.
Evgenia is a poet and artist. Sound, word, poetry, drawing are the primary elements of her current work. Through installation and performance work Evgenia creates experiences, which invite to question the boundaries of perception. Participants come into a direct experience with layers of reality, observing their own physical, psychic and emotional responses.
Evgenia was born in 1979 in Poltava (Ukraine, USSR). She graduated with an MA in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art, London in 2008. She is currently based in London. She worked in Moscow with Stella Art Foundation throughout 2005-2008, exhibiting internationally with projects 108, Europe, The Elements of Light. She moved to London in 2007 launching experimental work: Okean X (2007) and Manta Ray (2008). She was commissioned for site specific projects throughout 2010 - 2015: A-Field, Root A, Khaos, Kima, being Artistic Director and founder of the Analema Group.
Nao Masuda writes, records and performs various types of music mainly for theatre projects of diverse disciplines, as a musical director, composer, singer, and multi instrumentalist. In 2013 Nao led a project to create “musical sign language” with both deaf and hearing artists (Music in Motion project) and has since been exploring possibilities of multi-sensory experience of sound and music.
