1. KOSMOPOLIS 2011 // Bcn2355. Jam d'escriptura


    from CCCB Added 44 0 0

    El Jam d’escriptura va néixer a Buenos Aires el 2007. El concepte és senzill: un escriptor crea en directe i el seu text es projecta en una pantalla, mentre el públic-lector pren un cafè o beu una copa i escolta la música que punxa un DJ- La performance intenta qüestionar el caràcter íntim de l’acte creatiu i alhora busca la interpel·lació directa del lector-espectador. El 2010, el Jam ha arribat a Mèxic DF i a Barcelona amb el suport de l’editorial Mondadori i Kosmopolis 2011 acull una edició especial. La idea és organitzar una “marató” de cinc hores en la qual vuit escriptors, un il·lustrador, un crític i tres videoartistes i VJs creïn una novel·la d’escriptura col·lectiva l’acció de la qual comença quan una nau amb un equip nord-americà aterra a Barcelona l’any 2355. Participants Víctor García Tur, Eloy Fernández Porta, Andrés Ibáñez, Manuel Vilas, Andrés Neuman, Jordi Puntí, Mathias Enard, Flavia Company, Miguel Brieva, Laura Fernández, Boris Dulon a.k.a Borobros, Germán de Souza, Carlos Canillas, Jorge Carrión. + info: http://www.cccb.org/kosmopolis/ca/activitat-bcn_2355-35763

      • CrossFit Meets Online Comments


        from Amber Hawk Swanson Added 1,516 2 0

        Amber Hawk Swanson received early press for her "Amber Doll Project" (2008). The project involved her commissioning the production of a life-like sex doll, a RealDoll, made of a PVC skeleton and silicone flesh, in her exact likeness. The first article to profile the "Amber Doll Project" received a great number of anonymous online comments and was posted on a number of blogs where the amount of comments grew. Her two and a half hour performance, "Online Comments (August 2007 - October 2011)", features Hawk Swanson reading every comment still online as of August 2011. Misspellings, typos, grammatical errors, duplications etc. were retained from the originals. Hawk Swanson's live corresponding live performance, Online Comments (August 2007 - February 2011) featured the artist reading every comment still online as of February 2011 while completing four workouts inspired by fitness methodology and cult-like online community, CrossFit, of which Hawk Swanson is a part. Online Comments (August 2007 - February 2011) bridges the artist's Amber Doll Project to her series, Fit, a series of durational performative videos. Along with her her communities at CrossFit South Brooklyn, and Windy City CrossFit the artist enjoys combining powerlifting and Olympic weightlifting, sprinting, and gymnastics along with functional fitness activities. Her interest in CrossFit, along with the long list of the functional fitness tasks her grandfather assigned her father at a young age, has led her to assigning herself the weekly digging of chest-deep holes for time as well in addition to other functional fitness tasks met with the related structure of endurance performance art.

          • NEMATODE, Multiverse Spring Residency Event, at Wysing Arts Centre, 9 May 2015


            from Wysing Arts Centre Added 7 0 0

            For the final event of their residencies, artists Kit Craig, Joey Holder and Takeshi Shiomitsu have devised a flexible framework through which to present ideas, works-in-progress and fragments of images, which will take place within Wysing’s gallery. Playing with the structure of a space for presentation, alongside the space itself, the gallery will become a fragmented environment within which, through a process of layering of imagery, video, film, text, spoken word and objects, the artists will give an insight into some of the research they have been focussing on during their time at Wysing. For the event, they will be joined by Electra’s Irene Revell who will present films by experimental feminist film-maker Sandra Lahire (1950-2001), with additional contributions from Canadian artist, writer and educator Emily Rosamond and the writer, critic and curator, Chris Fite-Wassilak. 2pm Welcome by Wysing’s curator Lotte Juul Petersen 2.05pm Emily Rosamond presents ideas on The Umwelt and The Operational Image in response to Joey Holder’s work in progress * 2.45pm Irene Revell presents three films by Sandra Lahire and reads a text co-written with artist Kerstin Schroedinger in response to the three artists in residence.
