        Gallery performance by Via Negativa “Today, there is no longer any “ontological” difference between making art and displaying art. In the context of contemporary art, to make art is to show things as art.” (Boris Groys, Politics of Installation, e-flux journal #2, 01/2009) Gallery performance Naked Presence is about displaying live presence. We use a gallery space as a set up for installation of of five solo performances. Naked Presence is not about naked bodies, although they are dominant in the performances. Nakedness is just another mask of presence – it is not enough to take clothes off, each performer has to find the way how to unmask his own presence. Naked presence therefore treats a performance as a process of creating an artifact. Each performer exhibits the trails/leftovers of his/her presence as the artifact. In Düsseldorf performance took place in the context of current Kunsthalle exhibition entitled “Real Presence” which presented works by artists that made explicit reference to Marcel Broodthaers. When Broodthaers presented his installation Musée d’Art Moderne, Département des Aigles at the Düsseldorf Kunsthalle in 1970, he put up a sign next to each exhibit saying: “This is not a work of art.” With Naked Presence we would like to add: “This is not a work of art. This is work of presence.” Performers Marko Mandić Jaka Lah Barbara Kukovec Kristian Al Droubi with Christoph Rech Concept Bojan Jablanovec Production Via Nova performances produced by Via Negativa and supported by Ministry of Culture of RS and the City of Ljubljana. Collective presentation Naked Presence as a part of the project Via Nova via FFT Düsseldorf produced by FFT Düsseldorf and supported by Kunststiftung NRW as a part of “Exposed – Grenzen der Schaulust.” Producer: Špela Trošt First presentation: 19 November 2010 Venue: Kunsthalle Düsseldorf

            The Shame Project is a cross-section to the concept and manifestations of Shame. Choreographer Sanna Kekäläinen has done the research using both psychoanalytical and philosophical studies and contemporary literature, making their concepts and conclusions collide, observing the collision points. Why do we experience Shame? The Shame Project is up-to-date social criticism at it’s sharpest and it takes a strong stand on our thoroughly capitalistic society. Shame is the opposite of human autonomy and an archaic, early feeling. Because of this, Shame has been used as an effective tool for power throughout the history. It has been used to opress women and other minorities. The themes of Kekäläinen’s early works Studien über Hysterie (1991) and My sword has 7 edges and 3 knots (1992) are in close interaction with the roots of the concept of Shame: Studien über Hysterie dealt with the hysteria of a woman shamelessly and honestly, bringing the ugly, hysterical woman on the stage. My sword has 7 edges and 3 knots dealt with the ecstasy of a woman with straightness and sensuality, using the concept and writings of Saint Teresa of Avila. Echoes from these works can be heard in the Shame Project Choreography, concept, text and space: Sanna Kekäläinen Dancers: Sanna Kekäläinen and Panu Varstala Choreographer's assistant: Lilja Lehmuskallio Lighting design: Heikki Paasonen Documentation: Sini Haapalinna

                    Parksouvenirs is a group of four short pieces. They were shown in Oslo gay film festival before some films. Parksouvenirs is made from some material with which I also made a video with Jan Steinum. This video named MayBee was screened during the 2002 at the gay film festival Mezipatra in Prague and Brno. The four Parksouvenirs pieces constitute the first part of my Park Trilogy.
