ECC-PERFORMANCE ART

Wat ons betreft / Was uns betrifft

Exhibition from 16-10 to 12-11-2021.

Goethe-Institut / Westersingel 9, Rotterdam (Mon, Tues, Thu and Fri 10:00 – 14:30)
Het Archief / Robert-Fruinstraat 52, Rotterdam (Thu, Fri , Sat and Sun 13:00 – 18:00

For ten years now, the twin cities of Rotterdam and Dresden have been linked by an artist exchange program that has enabled more than two dozen Dresdeners and Rotterdammers to spend a few months in the other city. A wealth of artistic work has emerged as a direct or indirect result of the residencies, and new creative partnerships have emerged across national borders. Reason to ask: What has emerged in these ten years? What themes, what impulses did the other, new city bring with it?

During the exhibition I will show the work Folding in Reverse, 2021.

Participating artists:
Alaa Abu Asad, Lisa Maria Baier, Ronald Bal, Marielle Buitendijk, Oana Clitan, Philipp Gloger, Barbara Helmer, Susanne Keichel, Andreas Kempe, Simon Kentgens, Hanne Lange, Sarojini Lewis, Judy van Luyk, Johannes Makolies, Sandim Mendes, Niels Post, Guido Reddersen, Juliane Schmidt, Birgit Schuh, Antje Seeger, Otto Snoek en Patricia Westerholz.

This Art Fair 2021 | Kromhouthal Amsterdam

You are cordely invited to This Art Fair, from 26 to 29 August, at the Kromhouthal Amsterdam. During the fair I will show my new film installation ‘Folding in Reverse’ and the performance ‘Error in Defoliation’.

Still: Folding in Reverse, filminstallatie with audio

The film installation is made of 3 porcelain panels with black/white film and audio. The porcelain panals were made during my artist-in-residence in Sundaymorning@EKWC (2020) and can be viewed in different ways due to the translucent effect. In this way I question the materiality of digital images. Now that we spend more time online and artworks mainly come to us digitally, I investigate the value of materials for sensory experience. The film installation shows dancers who playfully communicate in choreography through touch and feel.

Performance-installation Error in Defoliation , Ronald Bal, This Art Fair 2021, at the Kromhouthal Amsterdam, Photo: Friso Spoelstra

The performance installation Error in Defoliation is the first act of a two-hour performance, in which the performer plays with their printed body parts. And wondering what’s real and what’s not real. Are these my body parts or is this just reproduction? The objects are made from CT- and MRI-scans, in collaboration with the TU Dresden (Germany), and printed in 3D ceramic prints. The work creates a surreal doubling effect that plays with questions about truth and fiction.

My film installation can be seen in Stand G, right-hand side of the walking route, in the middle of the fair.

Live performance will be shown in the Break Out Room on Friday, August 27, at 7:00 PM and 8:00 PM

Dancers:   Ralph öllinger and Johanna Tenga

Test Case XXIII, Sundaymorning@EKWC, July 3

You are cordially invited for Test Case XXIII, at Sundaymorning@EKWC in Oisterwijk, on July 3 2021 from 11:00 to 17:00. During the Test Case I will show my latest film Catalysis and a live performance, with work made during my residency at Sundaymornig@EKWC.

My film Catalysis forms the latest chapter within the Cyber Story – Series. Where a character performs in dualistic mystery holding parts of its body as both witness and victim from its own creation. In my research, the cyborg / cybernetic organism, plays a key role, in which the cyborg is considered a hybrid machine and organism in one.

Trailer: Catalysis
