Philomene Pirecki is a multidisciplinary artist based in London working with photography, painting, sculpture and sound. Pirecki’s audio-visual performance is built around somatic rhythms, layered breathing, vocalisations, resonance and electromagnetic energy. The recordings generated by her own body work with variations in her heartbeats, lung volume and capacity, physical exertion and emotional states. Using both analogue and digital technologies, she shapes this into textural sonic material and visceral bass rhythms.
Pirecki has performed live at Wysing Polyphonic music festival, Wysing Arts Centre and at South London Gallery, and has recently exhibited work at Supplement, NYC; Chelsea Space, London; Kunstmuseum Luzern (within Laure Prouvost’s solo exhibition); Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, Sunderland; Pace gallery, London; Palais des Beaux-Arts, Paris; State of Concept, Athens; South London Gallery, London, and was shortlisted for the 2013 Max Mara Art Prize for Women.
She currently co-runs Casa Delirium a London based clubnight and performanceprogramme.
