Following their performance at Two Queens in 2014, we are delighted to welcome back MSHR for a live performance within the context of Viktor Timofeev’s exhibition If I could go to sleep for days, would you count the hours? (Sazarus 4).
MSHR is a collaborative project by Birch Cooper and Brenna Murphy, based in Portland, Oregon. The duo explore systems to reveal pathways toward ecstatic sensory experience. Working at the intersection of digital sculpture, analog circuitry and ceremonial performance, their physical projects revolve around analog light-audio feedback systems built from macro-arrangements of sculptural synthesizers.
MSHR emerged from the 5 person art collective Oregon Painting Society in 2011 and has since exhibited and performed at Le Dictateur, Milan; Kunstverein, Dusseldorf; Yerba Buena Center, San Francisco; Eyebeam, NYC; Family Business, NYC; Palazzo Peckham, Venice Biennale; Western Front, Vancouver BC.
This exhibition is part of a programme of exhibitions and events at Two Queens across 2016-18 kindly supported by public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Leicester City Council and De Montfort University with additional support from Arts Patrons Trust.
