An exhibition of Angelica Mesiti's recent work Relay League

In this new commission created specifically for and touring from Artspace, Angelica Mesiti presents a three-channel video installation and sound sculpture titled Relay League. The work takes as its departure point a Morse code message transmitted by the French Navy on 31 January 1997 to signal the imminent demise of this communication method. Morse code, which entailed a system of dot and dash radio signals and was often utilised as a language of distress at sea, was phased out after 130 years in favour of new digital communications. Inspired by this final poetic phrase, here Mesiti interprets its original dots and dashes through music, choreography, non-verbal communication and sculpture.
