And about Carry, 2014
Performance, +/- 25 min.Photo and edited video documentation. Collaboration with Freija van Dijk.
During the performance And about Carry Freija van Dijk and myself read fragmented stories of different characters and their daily live dilemma’s. Simultaneously we operate the coloured theatre lights that we installed in the space of the exhibition ‘and then it just happened’ in Inter Arts Centre in Malmö. The atmosphere of the white cube exhibition space is manipulated by the choreographed changes of the theatrical lights and the soundtracks that accompany the stories that we read out loud. The situations the characters of the stories find themselves in can be seen as metaphors for our own considerations and ambivalence when making and presenting works of art in an institutionalized setting. Truisms about life alternate with fragments that directly seem to address the audience. In this work we created a parallel world in the exhibition space that could reflect on the possibilities and restrictions of art.
