You are invited to celebrate O, an exhibition of live performance and installation exploring healing through costume by UTS Artist in Residence HOSSEI.
Acting as both exaggerations and extensions of the body, HOSSEI’s costumes are animated through euphoric live performances that explore the extraordinary potential of everyday things to act as vessels for joy and healing. As fantastical sculptures, his costumes live on through riotous installations that affirm the potential of the spirit and endow everyday things with new materiality and purpose. O is at once a mouth shape, a body held, and a portal to the otherworldly.
Conceived as an extended catalogue of his practice, ho55ei ~ BLESSSENSE bags and accessories will be exclusively available for purchase in UTS Gallery during the exhibition.
Content note: The opening night performance at the gallery contains nudity. Live performances in public spaces do not contain nudity. Please follow us @uts_art for updates on public programs as part of the exhibition.
