Dimanche rouge: Experimental Performances
On August 29th, 8pm, free admission, at Plateforme (Paris 20e), Dimanche rouge presents an evening of performance art featuring Jessica Hirst and Weeks & Whitford. How far digital? We shall try to evaluate that.
Jessica Hirst. In her interactive performance Creative Economy, she will explore and challenge concepts of the value of money and art as physical objects. Creative Economy intervenes international currency, the bills themselves, transforming them into independently functional objects, such as a sewn cloth, or as art, when they are painted.
Weeks & Whitford will present Concomitant - 12 x 15 = 180 Series. In this work, the artists will explore the concurrence of life and death, loss, hope and faith within recurring cycles and the lovers body as the locus for a lifetime. They began working together in 2010 in order to directly address the boundaries between life, experience and art and to confront their own social and emotional limits and the limits of others. They allow themselves to be vulnerable, to fail, to not offer answers, to not entertain, and to achieve a disintegration within performance in order for meaning to come through from beyond rationality, from where words expire. Influenced by literature, visual art, philosophy, performance, horror, porn and punk they blur the boundaries of performance art and common culture, theatre, academia, the private and the personal, art and life.
