Comments

Thank you everyone, I felt that that came to a natural end, though a little early. I appreciate everyone that tuned in! ###
Some more info please. Artists, venues, just digital? What's the story?
leer...la acción
http://www.geifco.org/A-Caballero/descargas/leerlaacción.pdf

Este último documento....escrito en confinamiento...resume no solo los útimos conceptos que he podido extraer...del arte de acción...estos veinte años de trabajo, sino que hace de cierre del Archieve Action Art, al que le he dedicado esos años.

Hecho el deposito, el legado, completo del Archieve y de mis escritos (biblioteca alberto caballero) al CENDEAC de Murcia, hago el deposito de vuestra confianza y dedicación a mi tarea...poder leer...la acción, más allá de la cotidianidad, de la acción de cada uno, de cada artista, de cada grupo, de cada evento.

Lo digo en mis ultimas notas, con este cierre, tengo la impresión que también es un cierre 'a la acción' tal como se presentaba en estos últimos 20 años, ahora intentando acercarse a otros modos de registro, como la fotografía, el video, los objetos/restos y la instalación...hace de otro modo. Serán otros que darán cuenta de este proceso.

Gracias por vuestro acompañamiento, tan preciado, seguimos en contacto. Alberto Caballero, Barcelona, postconfinamiento, julio del 2020.

Introducing the artists -
John Court
Artists Biographic Statement

John Court has been living and working in Tornio, Finland, since 1997. Court is a durational performance artist. Time is one of the most important elements in his work. Often he performs for 8 hours, the length of a working day. Other times he performs throughout an entire event or daily, during the opening hours of a specific gallery, museum or institution.

Lately he has been interested in letting the objects and materials that he uses in his performances determine the duration of his work. He does not consider his performances as solo pieces, since an element of collaboration is inherent in them, be it through his engagement with curators, organizers, artists, viewers, objects, spaces and time. Court’s works are responsive to the site and often the continuous, repetitive action creates a rhythm that runs parallel to that of the site. In all his works he is fundamentally concerned with drawing or writing, as drawing connects line, movement, space and time.

He has exhibited extensively and has been invited to perform at major events such as Das Dicke Ende in Bern Art Museum Switzerland (2018), MA, Art Museum in Rouyn-Noranda Canada (2018), UP-ON Live Art festival Chengdu China (2017), SIGNAL Festival in Brussels Belgium (2017), Beijing Live in China (2016), Viva! Art Action festival in Montreal, Canada (2015), 7a*11d in Toronto, Canada, DigitaLive in Guangzhou, China (2014), SpaceX Gallery Exeter in UK (2012), Guangzhou Live Art Festival in China (2010), ANTI Contemporary Art Festival in Finland (2010), the Venice Biennale (2005) and the Liverpool Biennial (2004).

Introducing the artists -
Katrīna Tračuma
Artists Statement

Fuelled by research into colour theory, animal rights, and a variety of scientific texts pertaining to our current epoch of the anthropocene, the work aims to interpret indelible issues of ethics, compassion, and the environment, in a playful way. The creative process aims to be as eco-friendly as circumstantially possible. The materials are often sourced from trash, and the actions used in creating the artwork deviate from polluting sources of energy. Thus, while harnessing the full potential of freely available human production movement and body, the work also engages performative actions. Coupled with the exploration of theatrical clowning, the work employs a variety of autobiographical symbols. These observations mirror universally identifiable behaviours within a consumerist society, and in regards to the philosophical investigations of the artist as a multilingual q***r vegan. The peculiarities of language lend themselves to form part of the narration for this visual chaos, along with pop culture references and comedy. Aiming to break down the barriers of institutional bias.

Introducing the artists -
Nina Oltarzewska
Artists Statement

Nina Oltarzewska is a multimedia artist whose works often incorporate performance. Her pieces largely deal with the limits imposed on existence by embodiment, as well as the psychological difficulties faced due to mass consumption of media. She focuses on the issue of loss of connection with the self, or a distorted perception of who we are, that arises from the constant confrontation with untruthful and unfaithful reflections of ourselves that we interact with through screens.

Introducing the artists -
Landi Kirkwood
Artists Statement

Landi Kirkwood creates work that reflects upon identity and legacy using a range of processes, including sculpture, lens media and performance. Exploring individual as well as collective trauma, her interest is not only in its occurrence, but the potentiality for healing in its aftermath. Her performances open up space for the exploration of material and its many possibilities, her work often looking at gender, class, racial and cultural disparity.

Merging technology with analogue processes, she uses performative strategy alongside installation as she questions personal agency alongside social myth. The accessibility of knowledge, language and culture often arises within her practice, her concern based within the disruption of institutional dominance.

Landi is currently studying a Masters in Fine Art at Belfast School of Art and was a recipient of the Bbeyond Graduate Award in 2019.

Introducing the artists -
Reuben Brown
Artists Statement

“Reuben Brown is a multi-disciplinary artist currently focusing in digital art, sculpture and installation. Most recently, their practice is material driven as they attempt to re-appropriate hyper-masculine symbols such as weaponry, the car and the sensualised masculine body, re-contextualizing them into the hyper-q***r, as they question the ritualism of performing masculinity. Their BIFPA21 performance will reference performative actions carried out by q***r activist organisations interested in challenging normativity.”

Thomas Antunes
Artists Statement

I am currently a 2nd year Fine Art Student and I work with sculpture and performance art practices. A lot of my work relates to my material body or references the emotions that I, and others may go through. I try to appeal to all types of audiences, so they learn my story and can connect with me through my art.
