A- - -Z presents Erica Scourti’s installation at StudioRCA titled ‘Spill Sections’, comprising new works on/ in paper, video and performance at StudioRCA.
'Spill Sections' takes stock of the artist’s body of work/ life, using vocal and visual recognition technology to ingest, process and partially re-stitch an archive of personal documents and auto-subtitled public performance videos.
Grounded in Scourti’s recent research into somatisation as bodily ‘speech without consent’, it explores acts of speaking through a loose knot of human and non-human others – past and current selves necessarily intertwined with friends, lovers, exes, frenemies and colleagues as well as technological interfaces and devices. Drawing on Adriana Cavarero’s account of ‘narratable selves’, which are always relational, always contingent on necessary others’ interlocutions, the exhibition asks how the body of work is also dependent on its narration through networks of contingency that unbound the work from the self.
Embracing seepage and porosity, 'Spill Sections' presents new works that accumulate without definitive coherence, performing a multivocal autobiography as self-assessment exercise.
Scourti was born in Athens, Greece and is now based in London and Athens. Her work draws on personal experience to explore life, labour, gender and love in an algorithmic age and has been shown internationally at spaces like the Wellcome Collection, Kunsthalle Wien, Microscope Gallery, New York, Hayward Gallery, Munich Kunstverein, EMST Athens, Autoitalia and South London Gallery.
