  • BBB Johannes Deimling

    BBB Johannes Deimling

    To present complex contents, situations and moments in a simple and elementary way is a signature of the art of BBB Johannes Deimling: the term ‘Performance Art Povera' describes his works. These are the intersections that inspire and provoke his approaches to the perception of aesthetics, concept and content of his work. The ‘acted images’ of the artist are initially created purely visual, but gradually access to all the senses to create a holistic view on the banalities of everyday...

    Tomasz Szrama (FI)

    Tomasz Szrama (FI)

    Born in Poland in 1970 and living in Finland, Szrama's practice shifts between multiple disciplines, including photography and video. Regardless of the medium, a dominate common thread in all of his work is the use of his own body and methods of performance art, such as action, gesture, and the physical manipulation of everyday materials. Szrama's work is humorous and self-reflexive, often putting his own body into impossible and even ridiculous situations such as attempting to hang himself with helium balloons,...

    Willem Wilhelmus (FI)

    Willem Wilhelmus (FI)

    I make holes in the time. A good piece of art will interrupt the steady stream of time. To create something like that in live art demands a "Fingerspitzengefühl", an extreme sensitivity, for where I am, for what is happening around. I need to be able to use the attention, given by the audience, as a drive for my action: to give form to the fluid mix of ideas, feelings and sensations I carried along during preparation time. A clear shape in...

  • Skeldos (LT)

    Skeldos (LT)

    It is an undefinable longing that runs through the music as a watercolor lifeblood, slow ambient landscapes, fluid yet stable, distant traces of melodies, carefully incorporated into the sound. The author of the project defines the corpus of "Skeldos" as Music of Unease, stating that the restlessness is exactly the state in which one starts hearing. Along with the electronic sound processing devices, "Skeldos" for live shows is using acoustic instruments as well as the voice, which will be the case...

    Redas Diržys “Carnivalesque resistance in the age of oppressive spectacle and fake identities”, lecture

    What is identity? Where does it begin and where does it end? Why can't we be what we want to be and why can't we become what we really are? Why do we resist it? Who are those we resist? Identity is merely a spectacle which makes us passive observers of the world around us; in the same way we observe one another and end up observing ourselves in two - dimensional projection. We take the ultimate form of alienation: the...
