Distorted Constellations is an exhibition by Nwando Ebizie that uses sound, projections and holograms to immerse the audience in the imagined landscape of the artist’s brain. The work is inspired by Ebizie’s rare neurological disorder Visual Snow, which causes visual distortions such as flickering dots, auras and glowing lines.

As part of the exhibition, Ebizie will perform a visceral rage-ritual and dance piece based on mythopoetic movement of African origin and imagined neural pathways. 20 Minutes of Action is inspired by retellings of European and African folk tales and rituals about women. The performance features an analogue electronic score and immersive projection, and takes place within the Distorted Constellations installation. It draws on the artist’s research into perceptual disorders and dance through Haitian Vodou, Vogue and Ballet.

The performance will be followed by a discussion with Nwando Ebizie.
