Sisters From Another Mister at Depford X Festival

London,Deptford X Festival22 Sep - 1 Oct
Sisters From Another mister is a jointly authored artistic identity of Milda Lembertaitė (’87,Klaipėda, Lithuania) and Amelia Prazak (‘87, Vira Gambarogno, Switzerland). As a collective, they work with a free-wheeling practice employing gender play, witty sculptural forms, musical interludes and video works. Humorous scenarios function as a pretext for more complex personal and public topics and critical positions. Their approach to technology is a bodily and emotional one: the use of video as an extension of the physical self.
