ZIZI - QUEERING THE DATASET: Jake Elwes
Multimedia artist Jake Elwes will take over the GAZELL.iO Project Space throughout July. Elwes will bring his Artificial Intelligence project ‘Zizi - Queering the Dataset’ to the recently launched digital art space on Dover Street. The ongoing project, which started in 2019, explores the intersection of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) and drag performance. While Drag challenges to gender and delves into the concept of otherness, A.I. is often mystified as a tool that perpetuates social bias. Elwes’ evolving project intends to celebrate individuality and encourage its audiences to reflect on the preferences that exist within our data-driven society.
Elwes will present a performance piece on 29th July during his residency.
