Performance with photo prints, videoclips and props / 30 min
In this live presentation I offer a staged rendition of the way I handle my visual archive when at work in my studio. I order a seemingly random selection of images into clusters, based on recurrent patterns. By letting the audience in on my own way of seeing and sorting, as well as by sharing the stories behind images, I allow others to draw their own connections within this selection from my archive.
It was first performed at the event 'The Artist Speaks' at De Oude Kerk, Amsterdam (NL) 2014; After that it was part of the Performative Minutes series at KW, Berlin (DE) 2015; I performed it also for students at Kask, Gent (BE) 2015 and during the symposium Photography Performing Humor at De Buren in Brussels (BE), 2016; It was part of a performance event at Helmhaus in Zurich (CH), 2016; and NCCA in Moscow (RU) 2016.
