The year is 2013.

Thirteen is the infamous and mystical number we fear; dark, enigmatic and magical.
The number thirteen is associated with ill-luck, the conjured and the dangerous.

Thirteen is irrational fear and superstition. We are consumed by the imagined negative attributes of 13 enough to omit the thirteenth floor in modern structures, to obsess over Friday the 13th, to assign 13 malevolent intentions, some avoid the number at all cost.

Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts presents ‘13’ an evening of live and Skyped-in interactive performances and art installations. 

Viewers can expect to see people trapped in elevators, preteen love, Freddie Krueger, the phases of the moon, mind bending s
ynaesthesia, hang man’s knots, and much more!

Curated by gallery director Katie Micak and Propeller member Robin Hesse.

Propeller responds to mystical number '13' in a night of international installations and Skype performances, curated by Robin Hesse and Katie Micak.
