The Performative City
Stephane Gilot, Optica, Montreal Quebec, 2010

BatstaB was inspired by an invitation to participate in The Performative City, Stephane Gilot, 2010. A large model of a city was constructed. A community of performance artists were invited to inhabit and occupy the various structures by means of small lcd-screens embedded in the walls of these architectures. Hidden inside a car park BatstaB chattered away incessantly. The single channel video played on a loop, two women hanging from the ceiling, the sounds of bats chattering.
