Maus Hábitos Variations
Alongside her solo exhibition in the main gallery, Nichols will stage two performances – a sonic performance in the Maus Hábitos Concert Hall and an audio-visual performance inside of the exhibition. For the two performances,
Nichols will collaborate with musician Angelo Moustapha to explore the possibilities of improvisation between the disciplines of sculpture and music.
28th September . 9:00 PM
During this closing performance in the gallery, Nichols and Moustapha will de- stabilise and reinvent the composition of
the exhibition through improvisations with light, sound and movement.
