Until the end of its run, Channel B features new works by artists biarritzzz, GLOR1A and LVLZ, exploring consciousness and speculative fiction. 

The Death Of Tomorrow is an audiovisual and sonic experiment by artists biarritzzz and GLOR1A. This piece explores the human psyche in 2050. Driven by the uninhabitable earth around them, this film documents their last day in the physical realm as they upload their consciousness. 

Two new works by LVLZ are featuring in GLOR1A’s installation SWARM. Without Shame is a moving image work exploring shame, self-awareness and affirmations. 

REDO experiments with what it means to spiral back into control, exploring patterns and habits to reach a space of self-determined peace of mind.
biarritzzz was born in Fortaleza and lives and works in Recife. She is a transmedia artist who investigates the false issue of technicality vs. amateurism/science vs. the creation of magic from the interactions between the internet universe, the world of images and non-hegemonic bodies. She understands the infinite languages from that intersection and their cryptography as tools of power. In her work, she remixes pop culture, video art, meme politics, video game aesthetics and poetry with new media.

GLOR1A is a boundary-defying alternative artist exploring black futurism and sci-fi through emotive music, technology-laced art, and intoxicating live performances. The self-proclaimed alien is a non-conformist in approach, taking inspiration from ancestral myth and sci-fi, challenging the underrepresentation of Black femmes in this space. In 2021 she released her second EP METAL, hailed as an essential release by Bandcamp and Pitchfork, and Okay Africa, an EP introducing GLOR1A’s alter ego GLOR1A 2.0.

LVLZ Healing Hub × Liz Mputu is a new media artist and art & wellness facilitator.
