SOUND PERCEPTION / Performance by Sam Vernon curated by Adriana Pauly. Sound by Lizzy de Vita. March 11th.

Sound Perception is a one-night performance by the artist Sam Vernon in collaboration with Lizzy DeVita. The performance will run in coordination with DeVita’s exhibition as a reaction to the artist’s preformed concepts around home, identity and instability. Vernon will be guided by experimental sound, further exploring the sense of claustrophobia present in the exhibition and respnd to the space itself.
