A live play of a new piece recently created for the Secret Pope project by Sofy Yuditskaya. This last embodiment will be performed on Oct 31, 2021 for the closing of the Secret Pope installation at Harvestworks on Governor’s Island. On a backdrop of spacey stary skies and generated graphics, the Secret Pope emerges like a satellite reflecting and refracting 8bit projections of the constellations behind her. This piece speaks to the extension of ourselves into the future, and expanding into space. The piece was originally commissioned by Robert Pepper for his tarot project closing at Pleiades Gallery.

Her work focuses on techno-occult rituals, street performance, and participatory art. Sofy’s performances enact and reframe hegemonies, she works with materials that exemplify our deep entanglement with petro-culture and technology’s affect on consciousness.
