"Performing in Physical and Mental Space"
Throughout my work in the field of improvised live video art ('VJing') one special focus has always been the 'set and setting' of the performance. Who am I besides the operator of my instruments? In which local and cultural context do I present my art right now? I deliberately use such questions as prime inspiration for conceptual live performances unique to the place of their presentation and my subjective reception of that place. 'Place' in a spatial and also geographical sense. In my talk I will present a selection of my past and current work related to this concept.
Kiritan Flux works as a live visual artist and expanded-media producer since 2004. His artistic work ranges from VJ shows at prominent techno events such as TimeWarp (DE), or Sonus Festival (HR) to more conceptual live-cinema performances tailored to their unique local context. In addition to artistic works, he co-curates the monthly artist talk event Scope Sessions in Berlin.
