Trocadero Art Space presents a series of projects developed by artists during COVID-19 lockdowns.

Including artist talks, video projects, and Instagram takeovers, artists explored ways of making, creating, and Instagram takeovers, in response to exhibitions being postponed.

Across two episodes recorded in late April, host of Three Bellybuttons podcast Siying Zhou speaks with artists Corinna Berndt, Sophie Morrow, Marcia Vaitsman, Dongyan Chen, Shraddha Borawake, Ivetta Kang, Cynthia Arrieu-King, and Rochyne Delaney McNulty about their postponed exhibition ‘Across the Haze’.

‘Across the Haze’ brings together the discursive practices of six international and two local artists, who met last year during a residency in Berlin. Together, the group grapples with global events while contemplating the role of connectedness in the midst of uncertainty.

The works in the exhibition include a fictional broadcast by a group of friends in China, produced while spending Chinese New Year in quarantine; a poem that recounts fleeting moments of communal living while interacting with a capture app; a video recording of a Fluxus performance in which two female artists build shrines with curated garbage; an instructional hand massage, based on a Korean children’s game, to alleviate anxiety; a WhatsApp conversation between two friends on different continents; a pretend video game in which the end of the world could be averted by collective action.
