Artbox presents: Masonik is a multi disciplined, multi-musician audiovisual performance collective . Rising Lotus is the sound testimony of the collaborative project between Masonik and Swiss-Australian visual arts duo Maschi Fontana. Rising Lotus was shown as a part of the 2011 Perth International Arts Festival at the Fremantle Arts Centre from January till March 2011. Encompassing aspects of reductive materialism, minimalism, long frame video and landform sculpture, Maschi Fontana (Tom Muller and Jean-Thomas Vannotti) engaged in both the myths and aesthetics of the various landscapes they encountered while incorporating cosmic symbolism, cult rituals, occult forces and a retro-futuristic feel to their work.
