1–100 will be presented at Ausland, Berlin, on 9. December, 2018, together with new work by Plan B — Belasco & New, as part of the event Nearness — New Sound and Performance Works. The introductory text for the event is below.
Nearness is an evening of new artworks by two Berlin-based artist duos — plan b (Sophia New and Daniel Belasco Rogers) presenting Together/Apart, and Kata Kovács and Tom O’Doherty presenting 1–100. Together/Apart is a performative lecture and live video work, and 1–100 is a process-based spatialised sound work.
The works of both artist duos presented this evening share a common concern with the thematic core of nearness. Both works consider the possibilities of proximity and commonality — of matching without lining up, of the difference between the identical and the adjacent.
