“NOT A GIMMICK, BUT A PUNCHLINE”
Low key obsessed with reality TV, the multidisciplinary artist and musician Oyiri presents a specially commissioned episode for TRANSMISSIONS.
CHRISTELLE OYIRI (b. Nogent-sur-Marne, 1992) is a multidisciplinary artist based in Paris: she is a sound artist and DJ as well as a performer. Her work highlights forgotten mythologies, the subtle interstices between memory and alienation, DIY culture and technology. Her work has been exhibited in France: from Lafayette Anticipations to Frac Lorraine (2019) and la Gaité Lyrique (2018), and internationally at Espace Arlaud (2018) in Lausanne, HEK Basel (2019) and Auto Italia South East (2019) in London.
SEASON 3 of TRANSMISSIONS will run as six episodes screening once per month on Wednesday at 9pm GMT/BST on Transmissions TV. Each artist included in TRANSMISSIONS is paid a fee in return for their contribution. In some instances, artists have waived their fee in order to donate to a charity of their choice. With a sense of community, all the money used to pay artists in Season Three has been kindly donated by established institutions and commercially stable artists.
