JUST MARRIED (2013)
João Vilnei and Teresa Luzio

A married young couple travels to Berlin to spend the honeymoon and visit some city tourist places. The couple decides to leave at the various sites the memory cards with pictures, sounds and videos taken by them and by passersby. In each memory card will be a text file stating that the card was meant to be lost and belongs to those who find it. The set of actions consist of leaving behind the memory of the experience, also as a way to end a marriage that belongs to the art world, so it is fictional.

The project raises an ambiguity, on one hand the deliberate choice of all records loss in favor of experience, on the other underlines documentation richness which arises by virtue of performance. Along with the last memory card the couple decides to leave behind the alliances, as metaphor for a marriage that lasts as long as memory.

12 x 15 = 180
Weeks & Whitford

Rebecca and Ian have been together for 15 years. In that time they could have conceived 180 different children (12 x15 =180). Instead of raising a family they have chosen to make art and to organise art projects. In this performance they plan to address this choice by using 180 eggs to generate actions which result in cooking and sharing pancakes with the audience, thus framing the processes of giving, sustaining and experiencing that are central to making and sharing performance.
