Wetten, Synnøve Sizou

Video, sound, performance and painting.

Synnøve Sizou G. Wetten perform futurist scenarios from a queer perspective, suggesting that the posthuman helps us make sense of our flexible and multiple identities, merging non binary id, sexual differences and speculations on artificial intelligence. Medias include performance, video, sound, painting and text projects,

WEVARIATIONS is a collaboration project together with Kristina Ketola Bore where we speculate in futurist criticality and feminist algorithms.
