syNerGia’s art exposes the culturally conditioned feminine, which exists at the centre of Western culture, by looking beneath the aestheticized surface of gendered performance to strip back the body to its fundamental state.

The feminine experience has been shaped so intensely and intensively for so long that it has become trapped in perpetuated performances that restrict and predefine our ways of being.

syNerGia’s art is a rupture of these restrictions in pursuit of alternative ways of experiencing and connecting with the whole of the body, not just the surface. Using scaffolding as material, we divest it of its masculine power and boldly reconstruct it as a foundation for immersive film and sound installations, which expose the fundamental and visceral body to allow for diverse interpretations. We rupture, we reveal, but we do not define.
