Sigmar Polke, Telepathische Sitzung (Telepathic Session) works

Sigmar Polke explored telepathy, psychoactive substances and visions, ESP, occult and phantasmagoria for over thirty years. He created a number of artworks that manifested a telepathic engagement with earlier artists who shared a deep engagement with the uncanny and the occult, such as Francisco Goya and William Blake. “In 1968, the year of protests across Europe and the United States, Polke designed ways of communicating with dead artists. Both Telepathic Session I (Max Klinger–Sigmar Polke) (Telepathische Sitzung I [Max Klinger–Sigmar Polke]) and Telepathic Session II (William Blake–Sigmar Polke) (Telepathische Sitzung II [William Blake– Sigmar Polke]) consist of two canvases of the same size labeled Sender …

Imants Tillers, Conversations with the Bride

Imants Tillers’ 1982 essay “Locality Fails” deals with the cultural and political relevance of a conceptual shift in the forces of quantum phenomena. “Since Bell’s Theorem proves that the principle of local causes fails it is of crucial relevance to the present discussion of a ‘local’ content in Australian art, ‘regionalism’ and ‘aboriginality.’”[1] “Locality Fails” discusses the telepathy of Abramoviç/Ulay’s global project begun in Australia and performed all over the world, Gold Found by the Artists, later renamed Nightsea Crossing, 1981-1987. In Tillers’ artist catalogue Telepathic Music, Graham Coulter-Smith summarises Tillers’ obsession with evoking the quantum physics aspect of telepathy in …

Susan Hiller, The Sisters of Menon

The Sisters of Menon, 1972-1979, was made while Hiller was working on her collaborative telepathy experiment Draw Together. While working on this project where she attempted to send images for friends all over the world to draw, Hiller was surprised to find herself the agent of automatic writing. This work was then to form this body of work known as The Sisters of Menon, which communicated powerful collective female solidarity of ‘sisters’ from Thebes.[1] The women’s movement of the 70s that Hiller was a part of carried an interest in Ancient Greek oracular women. When her partner David Coxhead tried to …

Jonathon Monk, Translation Piece

Monk’s Translation Piece, 2002, in the same exhibition, involved Chinese whispers-style translations of the catalogue text statement of which Barry’s Telepathic Piece is comprised: ‘During the exhibition I will try to communicate telepathically a work of art, the nature of which is a series of thoughts that are not applicable to language or image’ so that the final confused statement is ‘in this image the way of expression of reactions of the soul attempts to come close to a work of art’.[1] In an interview with Monk’s curator for this exhibition, Raimundas Malasauskas, Barry discusses art as a form of mysterious vibration and …

Second Front, Tower of Babelfish

Second Front includes a number of artists working with the virtual telepathy of Second Life, including Scott Kildall aka Great Escape and Jeremy Owen Turner aka Wirxli Flimflam – friends who together collaborated to re-perform a work by Abramoviç/Ulay and other key examples of performance art. In addition to the telepathy of appropriative reperformance, an example of Second Front telepathy work is a group performance they undertook with the spirits of four dead performance artists in Tower of Babelfish (2007): Tristan Tzara, Ana Mendieta, Charlotte Moorman and Rudolf Schwarzkogler. Fluxus Conceptual artist Larry Miller, who works with telepathy and hypnosis in his real world performances, …

Marina Abramovic, Seven Easy Pieces

Seven Easy Pieces involved Marina Abramovic’s 2005 reperformance of six key performance works: two of her own works Lips of Thomas (1975) together with her new work and Entering the Otherside (2005) and earlier works by other artists: Gina Paine’s The Conditioning (1973), Joseph Beuy’s How to Explain Pictures to a Dead Hare (1965), Valie Export’s Action Pants: Genital Panic (1969), Vito Acconci’s Seedbed, (1972) and Bruce Naumann’s Body Pressure (1974). They were each performed for seven hours each, and approach the works as if they were like a music score. This work directly addresses the problem of conservation strategies for performance and time-based …

The Telepathy Project, Dreaming the Collection

The Telepathy Project consists of Veronica Kent and Sean Peoples who created the work Dreaming the Collection using artworks from the National Gallery of Victoria. The artwork consisted of two parts. It was a selection of paintings and prints from the NGV Collection that featured images of people sleeping, with performances made of characters in the artworks. A postcard was also provided that invited viewers to record their dreams and send it back so that the these dreams could also be performed. The postcard showed Kent and Peoples asleep on the floor of the NGV’s Federation Square venue below the installation of paintings and prints …

Jacquelene Drinkall, Psychic Scott on the Phone to Duchamp

Drinkall’s installation Psychic Scott on the Phone to Duchamp comprised of an audio recording of a professional psychic and feral scallywag called Scott contacting the late artist Marcel Duchamp that was piped into analogue telephone headsets dangling down from an oversized table. The oversized table was a replica of a smaller table that may also be shown with the larger table, installed with a device that makes the table top rise and fall with reference to table-tapping. Drinkall also references table-tapping and spooky animation of tables in her work Schizophrenic Tabernable Table Tapping, which incorporates the brainwave of a coma patient into the top …

Gianni Motti, Paradigm Shifts

For the 100th anniversary of Dada, Gianni Motti developed a Zurich-centred but global telepathic performance called Paradigm Shifts as part of the celebratory program of events hosted by Cabaret Voltaire, the birthplace of Dada, called Obsession Dada. The performance action consisted of a telepathic séance with the audience invited to participate. The telepathic performers brought a unified mental attention to and attempt to influence or destabilise their governing organisations. The artist also distributed the dispositif of a ‘firewall’ to prevent interference of electro-magnetic waves. Motti included invitations to anyone wished to be part of this extra-sensorial experience to participate at Cabaret Voltaire or from …

Marcel Duchamp, The Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors, Even

Marcel Duchamp’s Boîte-en-valise (Box in a Valise) brings together a review of his oeuvre including a number of works that deal with telepathy such as The Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors, Even (also known as The Large Glass). Linda Dalrymple Henderson has shown how Large Glass works with telepathy and how telepathy is an integral part of his aesthetics influenced by Freudian psychoanalysis, non-Euclidean space and irrational automation, terrains ripe with telepathic phenomena and potential. Henderson details telepathy in Duchamp’s Large Glass through his work with imagery of 1900s electrical devices to parody gender oppositions through mechanical figures of the bride and her bachelors. …
