KISSS was launched in August 2005 at the Whitechapel Gallery London where KISSS strategies were presented to a full house in a live, intermedia combination of performance, video, interventions and working sessions. An audience member observed how she appreciated Śthe range of material and approaches that were presented, from the very intimate to the political body, without being didactic‚. This was followed in September by a SUMMIT, at an isolated country retreat in Somerset. A new piece of work! Thomas‚ Head was developed in response to the site, the historical ar chive and ideas of surveillance and suppression developed and enacted in public space.
KISSS is brought to Conical Gallery by London based Australian artists Joanna Callaghan and Deej Fabyc and co-curated with Paula Roush and Camilla Brueton.
