ARTISTIC RESEARCH: FOUR APPROACHES. II/IV – THE MIRROR AND ITS REFLECTIONS
INTERVENTION, DISCUSSION AND PERFORMANCES
“The mirror and its reflections” is Camilla Graff Junior’s artistic research project, which deals with the use of autobiographical materials in performance. What happens in the process of sharing personal stories? What is the driving force for doing this? Five artists and researchers from a range of fields working with autobiographical material are invited to discuss and show their work.
The session is divided into three parts.
The first part “Who holds up the mirror for whom?” is an intervention where Camilla Graff Junior aka Mona Motel invites the artist to her couch. The dialogue will revolve around each individual performance practice and the various thematic overlaps between the artist’s work: memory, loss and the construct of identity.
The second part is a discussion on the role of the “mirror” and how a shift in perception, both on the side of the audience and the artist, can be measured. Luisa Greenfield will host the discussion featuring the artists and the collaborators on the Artistic Research team: Nathalie Fari, Joel Verwimp, Teena Lange and Ilya Noé.
The evening program, which is the third part of the session, is a presentation of selected works of the invited artists.
