OXIORCAD is a 30 minute performative event with live soundscape and sculptural body interventions, to take place across sunset within the BODY ECHO exhibition. This will be the second iteration of OXIORCAD, a performance Hurrell created as part of a trilogy of works mapping changes in state of an amorphous body. OXIORCAD takes the state of ’liquid’, as a non-static state between viscosity and vapour. Similarly to the performances composition, the title implies a combining of three states/nouns into a new verb/state; attempting to immerse the audience ‘body’ into a choreographed space of shifting sound, light and presence.
In Hurrell’s work object making, choreography and sound production perform a similar function; to explore movement and the body as a language, communicating on a pre-linguistic and physical level. She is interested in the embodiment of these perceptual and sensory languages as well as unpacking paradoxical dualities within ideas of the feminine.
