Since 2010 Paul has been collaborating with French/UK artist Paul Granjon on the Experimental Body Extension Manufacturing Unit, which premiered at the Campbelltown Arts Centre, Oct 2012. EBEMU is a project where ideas about physical body extensions are explored and prototypes of Wearable Hybrid Body Augmentations partly made from discarded material sources are constructed. Investigating the performativity of new human/machine relations and the emotional/physical states that are inherent within such new forms.
This workshop continues a series of choreographic investigations Paul began at Critical Path in 2012 to explore these built prototypes as performance initiating devices.
Paul Gazzola has an interdisciplinary practice spanning over 20 years across art, architecture, choreography, curation, installation, performance, scenography, video and theory. He was coordinating provocateur for the 2010/11 Splendid Arts Lab and co-curated Return to Sender at Performance Space, Sydney.
