DEVORM proudly presents METASTASIS, an audiovisual collaboration between artists Robert Kirk and Sphynx. The work centers around feelings of dispersion and dislocation, both geographically and socially, the artists have lived through. By using self-referential ways of production and the use of extreme elements that may not be pleasant to the ear, Kirk releases a feeling of falling apart, a center that cannot hold and thereby enters a period after stagnation. A metastasis.
Accompanying the audio, Mexican-born Utrecht-based artist Sphynx (Enrique Arce Gutierrez) made four videos using self-programmed software. The visuals reflect on the feelings in the record by making use of the same sampling techniques and incorporating the same dispersive aesthetics as the audio.
