Henrik Vestergaard Friis: presents THE ART OF DOCUMENTATION a long open lecture. There is a great interest in the live presence in front of an audience, but afterwards, the artwork exists in peoples minds only – and perhaps in a videorecording of a dubious quality.  wishes to challenge this way of thinking about performance art. Is it possible to create performance art with a lasting influence? Can you transform Performance to another media? www.liveart.dk/nowagain/index.html

Using the social and cultural material collected through Roaming the City I and II (May 15 and 18), I will share the fruits of these earlier activities through a performance “in the present”. Through the discovery of self in relation to the Other, resonating with the cosmopolitan audience at the Hub, as a foreigner I aim to achieve a singular human connection.

‘I’ is a wall, that is double sided
I become We

We are in a state of decay. I am at the point of dissolution.
Posters fallen, trampled: the nation is shedding it’s skin.
Urea crystallized: the body is discarding us.

The entire space is a borderland. Enter in the moment of decomposition and experience the micro-organics of collaboration that motivate our entity to fall apart, grow anew.
