27–29 October 2023
Cafe OTO is proud to announce a new artist residency, featuring multimedia artist Vicki Bennett aka People Like Us. Vicki has collaborated with a wide range of artists and musicians; some are joining us for this 3-Day residency, both solo and in collaboration.
The residency includes brand new performances by all artists, a preview of the new People Like Us AV performance "The Library of Babel", and new collaborations between People Like Us, Ergo Phizmiz & Gwilly Edmondez.
Under the name “People Like Us,” artist Vicki Bennett has been making work available via CD, video and vinyl, radio broadcasts, concert appearances, gallery exhibits and online streaming and distribution since 1992. She sees collage as folk art sourced from the palette of contemporary media and technology, with all of the sharing and cross-referencing incumbent to a populist form. Using collage as a compositional tool, Vicki Bennett opens up endless opportunities to experience results that are more than the sum of the parts. Most of the People Like Us back catalogue has been available for free on UbuWeb since 2002 and Vicki has a weekly radio show "DO or DIY with People Like Us" on WFMU.
