SOS: The Coffee Table explores the significance of women’s porcelain collecting and its psychological, emancipation and social functions. The project aims to reframe coffee table gatherings, utilizing ecologically sensitive methods and materials in circuit building to reflect on colonial histories and power dynamics. The artists incorporated the lustered gold found in collectable porcelain as part of an interactive electronic installation. By drinking coffee different sounds are triggered. The performance seeks to establish friendships, share secrets, and reclaim power.

Two performances by the artists, will take place on the 29th of October [11:30 and 17:00].
