UNAUTHORISED by Iris Karayan

Pop music videos and YouTube clips of Muhammad Ali and John McEnroe are cut up and rehashed into a new composition in UNAUTHORISED; a work which challenges the obstinate physicality of the body to fade into the abstract. Looking closely at ways in which the body is performed and represented in sports and pop culture, the piece creates a live collage of physical enactments and mutations, attempting to explore the emotionality of the body.
