Nonagon II – Paula Temple & Jem the Misfit


– Part of the NODE17 Closing Evening

Nonagon II is a provocative audio-visual collaboration between Paula Temple and Jem the Misfit.  A journey of 9 parts, Nonagon II vibrates between the raw physicality and intensity of Temple’s music and the intertwined visual narrative developed through Jem the Misfit’s striking imagery.  Creating a gateway to a world of abstract forms and sound that describe, on a symbolic level, how humans, environment and economies are in conflict with one another.

Featuring music exclusive to the show, new music on Noise Manifesto and reinterpretations of her remixes, Temple constructs a sonic journey through post-industrial techno, apocalyptic soundscapes and absorbing melodies. Moving away from singular interpretations, the show moves towards a multiplicity of sound, environment, surface and form.

‘Designing Hope’ as a theme, as artists or as designers, is meaningless without action. Paula Temple and Paramount Artists will donate their fee for this show to Women-in-Exile, a non-profit organisation based in Berlin/Potsdam since 2011, who campaign for the safety of refugee women and children, fight for their rights to asylum, fight the hopelessness of deportations, and defend themselves against sexualized violence, discrimination and exclusion.

Only in taking action can we have any hope for the future.
