exhibition – performances – workshop – meeting
lucy, the first collaboration between ART ON STAGE, founded with the mission to attract new followers in contemporary art and bodig, known for its projects questioning the relationship between new media technologies and the body; is inspired by the fluctuating inner world of a fastidious, bohemian, ecstatic, fragile, creative and powerful new generation.

The exhibition invites this generation and their contemporaries to reunite with their imaginary friends, to confront their spontaneous decisions, to listen to and hum together non-existent melodies that linger in their heads, to participate in the primitive quality of the notion of time, and to go back home with one red apple after spending two hours at a vegetable market.

20 March 2008, 21:30 at Studio Live
During the exhibition, on the last date when night is longer than day, artists Rudolfo Quintas and Andre Gonçalves invite viewers with their lighters and matches to an interactive sound performance, 'burning sound' they are going to perform at Studio-Live. In their performance the artists analyze the contemporary strategies of invisible control, using fire.
The event will begin with a performance by one of the most innovative composers in Turkey, performance artist and sound designer Tolga Tüzün (TR) and before 'burning the sound' Bisnov Project (TR) will present a performance featuring processed real-time images of the physical body. After 'burning the sound', the night will conclude with Diana Combo's (PT) performance where she is going to try to make everyone hear and believe that brand new spots and lines appear on her records every time they are listened to, by burning them, breaking them and gluing the pieces back together.
Tolga Tüzün (TR), Ururu (TR), Rudolfo Quintas & André Gonçalves (PT), Diana Combo (PT)
