ARTIST STATEMENT: WILD TORUS is a collaborative platform of Brooklyn-based artists, led by Mike Berlant and Amy Mathis, who create chaotic, cult performance happenings and site-specific installations. WT aims to produce a shared, interactive experience by utilizing digital and physical means to commemorate pervasive patterns that occur in society and throughout the universe. Its ephemeral activities expand beyond its participantsâ€™ and performersâ€™ consciousness in addition to their corporeal position on Earth. The shared, ritualistic experiences activate a liminal space-time to deconstruct events that occur in contemporary reality and are disseminated through media sources. Ultimately, the coming together of invented identities, objects, symbols, images, and physical movements collapse into a dystopian spectacle.
