Workshop 'Inter-Facing Performance'


Workshop 'Inter-Facing Performance'
25 - 30 August 2003
Netherlands Media Art Institute in collaboration with Amsterdam- Maastricht Summer University

Contemporary art practice is constantly expanding the use of technology. The workshop examines the historical and technological developments in performance arts. The course will be a creative and practical collaboration between performing and media artists, and will be contextualised by critical discussions on contemporary practice; wireless networks and performance, real-time relationships between body and site, maps and architectures, physicality/usability/haptics - interface. The workshop will be lead by Kelli Dipple, an internationally known artist that specialises in performance and the use of new technologies. The workshop will be placed in a historical and critical perspective through a number of guest speakers.

The goal of the workshop is to examine the possibilities for site specific performance, while making use of wireless and portable communication tools. The participants will be divided into three groups, collaborating on small projects throughout the week. Collectively the aim is to create effective relationships towards the building of a non linear experience within and around the Montevideo architecture.

Australian artist and project manager Kelli Dipple, has worked for the past 7 years at the intersection of digital technology and performance practice. Having trained traditionally in theatre directing and choreography at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane Australia, Kelli has since developed a detailed knowledge of video conferencing, streaming media, web and digital video technologies. Specializing in international co-production, interdisciplinary research, collaborative practice, performance making and remote/multiple site events. Her practice draws upon a collaborative and interdisciplinary methodology and maintains an interest in the integration of visual, interactive, communication and network technologies into live events for live audiences.

Marina Abramovic - solo exhibition


Press Release

Marina Abramovic
May 10 - July 6, 2003
Opening: May 9, 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.

The Netherlands Media Art Institute, Montevideo/Time Based Arts, in cooperation with the World Wide Video Festival, is organizing a solo exhibition of Marina Abramovic. In addition to a number of new works, a retrospective of her previous work will also be presented.

Since the beginning of her career in Belgrade in the early 1970s, Marina Abramovic has been active in performance art as a visual art form. Her body is both her subject and her medium. To investigate her physical and mental limits she undergoes extreme pain, exhaustion, danger and emotional and spiritual transformations. For Abramovic performance means a direct exchange of energy with her audience. She seeks to initiate this exchange in as personal a manner as possible. With her 'Transitory Objects' Abramovic tries to actively involve her audience in her performances. 'People only change through their own experience.' Since 1976 Abramovic has used video to catch the transitory character of her work. For her, her performances, installations and videos are objects of reflection in which people can recognize themselves.

During the exhibition in the Netherlands Media Art Institute - the gallery where Abramovic has worked on her artworks since her arrival in The Netherlands - both old and new work will be presented. The 'Performance Anthology Marina-Ulay' (1976-1987) will show a liberal selection of never-before-shown recordings of performances by Marina and Ulay. In many of her performances Abramovic used her head as her starting point. Sixteen of these performances are now being presented in The Netherlands for the first time in 'Portrait Gallery' (1975-2003). In 'Mambo' (2003 version) Abramovic invites the visitor to dance the mambo with her on a special magnetic floor. Inspiration and tranquillity are to be found in the installation 'At the Waterfall' (2003): 104 heads of Tibetan monks and nuns will form a waterfall of sound and image with their songs and portraits. In 'Roadshow' (2003) Abramovic offers an image of herself, which means being continually under way, the encounter with new people and ideas. The eight-hour-long installation is a biography of the life of Abramovic and moreover reveals the importance of a nomadic life for the work of Marina Abramovic.

>50% Beeld
