LN-CC presents #FIRSTDATE, a series of panel talks, immersive VR installations, live performances, DJs and more.
FIRSTDATE is the result of a collaboration between CROSSLUCID X HERVISIONS, a multifaceted project exploring sexuality and intimacy in the digital age. An ongoing series as part of the CROSSLUCID art residency in Tbilisi, Georgia. Their current point of interest are the technologies shaping human sexuality, their emancipatory promises and tendencies to reinforce bias, digital intimacy and virtual fantasies.
The Series begins at 4:3, Boiler Room, who are hosting a live-streamed panel talk, with panellists include Baia Pataraia (human rights lawyer & Sapari founder), Anania Gachechiladze (AISSA founder & political journalist), Khatia Akhalaia (gender researcher & sexual education campaigner), and Beka Gabadadze (queer activist; Equality Movement). The discussion will center around discourse and encompass the themes of digital intimacy, sexuality, sex positivity and the gamification of sex through virtual conversations amplified within offline peripatetic realities, which will be projected in the gallery space of LN-CC throughout the evening.
AGF Hydra will also present a performative extract from the “HYDRA PHYGITAL PROGRAM”, an immersive, regenerative performance. The audience will enter a safe space of non-verbal shared experience induced by VR and sound installation. Algorithmic landscapes and organic interfaces give access to a more extensive consciousness system of growth and self-repair. (3D in collaboration with George Jasper Stone)
In the club wearing the biocompatible Hydra uniform, DJ Aisha Zoe will take us on a trip through Slow Jams, deconstructed RNB and Techno. Also dressed in Hydra alternative costume, musician Gloria explores the synergy of role play and gamification, cycling through pleasure, lust, and domination. DJ Noudle will open and close the evening, bringing sounds of House, Jazz and Groove.
