Holly Childs & Gediminas Žygus

Holly Childs is a writer, artist, and performance-maker based in Naarm (Melbourne). Her work, across fiction, poetry, visual art and performance focuses on the shifting mechanisms of storytelling in a contemporary world in which physical matter is constantly being reshaped, recontextualised, and rewritten by emerging technologies.

Gediminas Žygus (they/them) is a Lithuanian artist working in the fields of sound, film and performance. Their practice focuses on the experience of selfhood in the post-Anthropocene. Žygus has presented works and collaborations at Barbican Centre, Berghain, La Biennale di Venezia, Centre Pompidou, Haus der Kunst, HKW, Palais De Tokyo, The Kitchen, Unsound and others.

Together they have released two albums, Gnarled Roots (2021), exploring 21st-century mythologies revolving around the fall of the twin towers on 9/11; and Hydrangea (2020), exploring intimacy, disconnection, and reality bubbles. Together they have created performances based on these two albums that have been performed in botanical greenhouses, galleries, a medieval church, a former bathhouse and a former bear enclosure.
