MPA-B 2012: PERFORMANCES, CONCERTS AND INSTALLATIONS SERIES

Picture(Click on image to enlarge)PERFORMANCES:
Anton Unai
Born from nothing
Live Painting, 20 mn.
Anton Unai’s paintings consist on a work applied rapidly with force in an effort to show the feelings and emotions of euphoria, disenchantment, satisfaction and defeat.
Painting gesturally, non-geometrically with shoe made DIY brushes, boxing gloves, worker pads, sometimes dripping and throwing objects onto the canvas.

Elvia Wilk, Shane Anderson
Poetry Lecture
Wilk and Anderson, two writers living in Berlin, will read excerpts from poetry collections dealing with notions of space, both real and imagined. Wilk, deeply involved in investigations of art, architecture, and spatial practice, and Anderson, whose work often focuses on cyberspace and text garbled through transmission, will come together to present a project in which the physical meets the virtual, and the written word becomes an object in real time and space.

Agora Collective
Seven Artists, part of the Agora Collective, will take over the ground floor of l’Atelier for a continuous live performance. Lasting three hours, during three days, the group will bring on the trilogy translating it into formal Aesthetic representations. Highly interactive, this happening will try to open up questions around the Art of the Performance.

Katherina Heil
De-Construction-Re-Construction, work in progress
De-construction-Re-construction is going to be produced over a 5-day period. During this time the artist will record random faces and their related names. Each print is going to be de-constructed and re-constructed and finally archived in a showcase. A log of the work process will also be part of the final installation. In each of the re-construction that make up the work, the aspects of construction (concepts as time, history, being, theory, death, mind, body, matter, logic) collide with the aspects of de-construction (destroying the construction) and re-construction (process of re-creating something more or less non-existent (as eg a moment of experience), the unknown, fragment, source, evidence, hypothesis, result).
The study-like way of working is a metaphor for the constructed self by using the underlying learned rules and procedures of reconstructing.

Vienne Chan
video, 2012
In an inverse to the white cube, where its emptiness and lack of reference can become a source of uncontrollable-ness, the artist will project her self-portrait interacting with the narrow, black triangular space of L’Atelier – kunst(spiel)raum, exploring the thematic of claustrophobia.

Pauline Payen
L’echec de la pesenteur
Video, 10`45mn, loop, 2009
The loop is centrated continuously on a rope making a hole. Bubbles blown through the hole. Emptiness encountering emptiness, as a symbol of vanity. Pop but minimal, poetical but cynical. L’echec de la pesenteur, un envol.

ABOUT L’ATELIER – KUNST(SPIEL)RAUM 

L’Atelier – kunst(spiel)raum is an exhibition space in the back yard of Grossbeerenstr. 34 in Mehringdamm, Berlin. 180 m2 over two floors host a program of solo presentations by young artists as well as experimental sound concerts, screenings, workshops and residencies. L’Atelier – kunst(spiel)raum is a project of curator Stefania Angelini (MC) initiated with the goal to act as a professional intermediate for selected young artists and at the same time as an interdisciplinary playroom for the local and international artistic community in Berlin. Six to seven selected artists per year are given the opportunity to present their work in an equipped gallery space, without the usual white cube attitude. The interdisciplinary concept of l’Atelier focuses on creating a platform for new ideas, interaction and networking. Linking different domains, finding alternatives to classical models of exhibition, L’Atelier tries to open up a pre-formatted idea of the art gallery according to the idea of Gesamkunstwerke: total work, total artist. The space is young and will evolve together with its artists.

For the second edition of the Month of the Performance l’Atelier approaches the field of Performance Art and pushes the boundaries through 5 days of programmed artistic interventions. The programme has been thought in 3 parts : – Permanent artistic installations – Performances – Concerts.

ABOUT SAVVY CONTEMPORARY 

SAVVY CONTEMPORARY – The laboratory of form-ideas is a lab of conceptual, intellectual, artistic and cultural development and exchange; an atelier in which ideas are transformed to forms and forms to ideas, or gain cognition in their status quo. This is achieved with respect to conception, implementation and contestation of ideas with/in time and space. Every two months, SAVVY CONTEMPORARY will present an exhibition in its gallery space aimed at fostering the dialogue between “western art” and “non-western art”. In this light, a curator will be invited by SAVVY’s art direction to further invite an artist from Europe or North-America and another artist from Africa, South-America, Asia or Australia. This “trialogue” will be “moderated” by the invited curator. The process of the trialogue and its result will culminate in an exhibition and a publication to the exhibition.

THERE IS NO LOVE LIKE THE FIRST BY VERA SOFIA MOTA

Picture(Click on image to enlarge)This is a piece around some postures of the classical dance as it comes to today. “Posture” comes from the Latin word “positura” that means, among other things, “fatigue, work to settle down, disposition, body placement, body attitude, order”- which brings us to the stances of rest, stability or immobility. All terms pertained to an extreme violence to dance, and that usually only take place in analytical approaches in this area. Nevertheless, there is something of the domain of fixity normally implied in dance in its process of actualization and that is much related to the kind of motion created in the relationship of these dynamic drawings of the body and the proper disposal of the gaze. And that, in the case of the classical dance, appears to involve in a very peculiar game where “thing tried” and “thing seen” are always mediated by a kind of ideal to always chase and never meet. Therefore, it appears that the “military procession” as Nietzsche says, is always the target of a confusing desire in this particular type of dance; something’s always present. And in here, what happens is a journey through some of these figures, where passage and drawing mix by marking a scale capable of the display and return to each other – grabbed and free formation, simultaneously shocking and able of its orientation. There goes the ideal. The referent remains. And ultimately, the referent of the referent, which becomes dull with its tendency for dissimulation and that could look to be first, but is not.

ABOUT TATWERK

TATWERK is a young/old spot in Kreuzkölln with a theatre tradition. For four years Tatwerk has been a place for theatre research on Artaud, Grotowski, Performance and Experimental Theatre. Within the global concept of Integral Theatre, Tatwerk has been searching for possibilities to unify different approaches of theatricality. Since March 2012 Tatwerk is taking on a new direction. In order to become a more permeable space for workshops, courses, encounters and exchanges it combines three main fields: Theatre, Dance & Performance. Possible topics to be developed in this project are Body, Action – political, artistic, social or experimental- and Present.
