In collaboration with performer Ann Trépanier and DJ po NY, Leisure Palace questions the relationship of performer and viewer. A site responsive, immersive installation that floats between pulsing party and minimalist dreamscape, the artists build a utopic landscape in and around the audience in slow motion. Asking, ‘What are the impacts of an environment built for a desired outcome?’
