In the Center of one’s own Periphery
Six Performances, 2019
Curated by Anja Ibsch and Teena Lange
After a successful first year of the performance series at the communal gallery studio in the HOCHHAUS, Anja Ibsch and Teena Lange once again invite six artists who work performatively and time-based. Not every act has to be self-acting; one can also act about oneself with a certain distance. Especially if something expected is not performed. As humans we can distinguish between actions that we perform or omit. Time, place and intention often play their own roles in relation to each other. Why does it make sense to talk about omitted actions? What is at core, what is in_adequate and what is the periphery supposed to be?
There will be moderated discussions with the artists after the performances. The gallery space could be left peripherally.
Always Tuesdays at 7pm

With a background in Stage Design (Akademiet for Scenekunst, Frederikstad, Norwegen) and a degree in Interdisziplinärer Kunst von der Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weißensee (2005), the Danish Ellen Friis has an unconventional approach to the basic questions of time and space. She is especially occupied with how various time structures influence or change the space and the narrative in live performance. In her works in theatres and museums in Denmark, Germany, England, Norway, Sweden and Poland, she combines the performances with video recordings to investigate what happens when time runs backwards, slowly or not at all.
