In a visually stimulating performance installation, we celebrate the beauty of our constructed identity.
HipSick is a collective from Rotterdam that operates on the intersection of performance and installation art. After Puppies for Sale and #ShapeME, the triptych Some Say Morality is Negotiable is concluded with DIGITAL DUCTTAPE.
DIGITAL DUCTTAPE comes from the urge to put a positive spin on the malleability of our identity. The work begins with the question, ‘does authenticity really exist?’. This is a question that HipSick answers with an emphatic ‘no’. And if authenticity really doesn’t exist, is there not then redemption and beauty in the potential of social media to enable us to present ourselves exactly as we wish? Isn’t the careful construction of our identities not precisely being ourselves without concession?
Please note that there will be use of a stroboscope during this performance.
On November 1 HipSick will host an Open Class. Would you like to visit the performance and attend the class? Simply book your tickets by choosing 'Tickets' at the top of the page.

HipSick operates on the intersection of performance and installation art. The creative process starts from fascination for western image culture, normativity, and the night. Contemporary social themes are approached from different perspectives, decontextualised, and abstracted. This results in performances that destabilise the perspective of the spectator.
