Performance at Oude Kerk Amsterdam on 29 & 30 Nov 2014

In this performance Oltheten offers a staged rendition of the way she handles her visual archive when at work in her studio, in a sense performing her own behaviour as an artist. Sorting through a selection of print and moving images, which are simultaneously projected as a slide show, Oltheten elaborates on her methods for mapping particular aspects of human behaviour.
This live presentation is at once a performance, an anthropological investigation, an auto-contextualization of Oltheten’s own work, and an instructive viewing exercise: by letting the audience in on her own ways of seeing and sorting, as well as by sharing the stories behind images, she allows others to draw their own connections within this selection from her archive.
