Art of Encountering VI | September to October 2015
ART OF ENCOUNTERING VI
11. September – 25. Oktober 2015
Performance Art, models to meet and pending communications in reciprocal transfer
Since 2005, there has been existing a continuing and stable exchange between artists from Asia and various networks in Europe and this in a two years rhythm. The Far East artists are invited to provide a distribution of their practices and theoretical backgrounds of their cultural activities. Responsible for the last 2 encounters and this newest edition is PAErsche – Performance – Art laboratory.
This year, 2015, eight artists from Mainland China are visiting the network partners from Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and Germany.
In this encounter more than 30 artists from the European partner countries and the eight Chinese guests are meeting each other. The duration of the project is scheduled for six weeks. The experimental fields of this Nomadic Artist’s Resident Project are diverse spaces, venues and public communicative situations.
In the experiment, the relation artist / audience is brought to unfold and to go further and beyond other artistic practices.
The offer of the European partners covers a wide spectrum: starting with the classic white cube (gallery), black theatre spaces and a factory hall with their raw charm. Then across into urban and industrial landscapes that can be marked by interventions and walks.
Other fruitful areas are small provincial centres, f.e. marketplaces. In between there are excursions in natural environments – heights, valleys, woods and quarries. Accompanying roundtables and information sessions are held, which are organized in cooperation with cultural centres and art associations.
The Chinese artists were invited because they maintain the braid of “exchange, gift and their return presents” and the communication between the public and their own aesthetic interests in these experimental fields and media.
Similarity and difference to the practices of European artists is fundamental and orientation for this meeting. PAErsche and our partners in this spanning project are interested, among other questions: How is this aesthetic focus and how can we let emerge this practice? The artists will show pieces and actions of Live Art and Performance as solitary artists or in cooperation and interaction
The artists will show pieces and actions of Live Art and Performance as solitary artists or in cooperation and interaction. The outbound range includes the physical sounding of intentions and situations, across to narrative sequences of living images and daily poetical gestures and intensive interactions.
