Feminist and Queer Transformations
Heatsick is the project of British born, Berlin based artist and musician Steven Warwick. In his works Extended Play and Re-Engineering, Warwick (aka Heatsick) loosely constructs potential situations that unfold into a sculptural experience of a moment, an idea, or a place. He then manipulates these plastic environments: slowing down or speeding up flows to explore all the events that exist in-between. Recently, Warwick was artist in residence at the Villa Aurora in Los Angeles where he staged a performance and released an accompanying soundtrack, ‘Reengineering Villa Aurora’, which depicts the strangeness of LA, edged between the expanses of the Pacific Ocean and the Mojave Desert. Heatsick has performed at MoMa PS1, Unsound Festival, Mutek, V&A Museum, Berghain and Musee de Quai Branly, Paris.
