Georg Klein (DE)

Georg Klein (DE) As part of our Horsens Happening, Georg transformed a store in Hospitalsgade into the office of an organization called the European Border Watch. Citizens were invited to observe segments of the European exterior borders via webcam to help curb illegal imigaration. The system was inspired by an actually existing citizen’s watch of a part of the US-Mexican border in Texas and supported by an almost official looking website that can still be visited here. Documentation of the work in Horsens: “Kunstnergruppe bruger falske nyheder”, februar 2017, DR P1. “Horsens Happening (24 pages)”, vinterferien 2017, Horsens Folkeblad.

This and the other games developed by Hue/Boy are […]

Elke Mark (DE)

Elke Mark Work for Live Art Denmark 2015 ARKENic at Live Art for Børn 2 at Arken ARKENic Elke begins her performance outside the museum space. Through the windows, we see her walking briskly across a deserted sandy construction site, covered head to toe in flowing blueish grey fabric. The image reminds us of a ghost, a witch, or another creature not quite from this world, as she approaches the museum in an almost floating stride, but with a purpose. Inside the auditorium she stands close to the kids and their parents entering the darkened space. Her robe slowly spreads out and closes, evoking images of a giant breathing mushroom […]

Marita Bullmann Works for Live Art Denmark 2015 “Acid Tears II” and “Foam From a Thousand Beers V” at Live Art for Børn 2 Acid Tears II Marita begins her first performance for our second children’s festival standing very still wrapped head to tow in a blue piece of cloth. Moving very slowly she covers about two thirds of the distance across the gallery before, still in slow motion, she sheds the cloth. She continues towards the center of the space, the contours of her body now clearly visible in tight athletic clothes, with the same slow awkward movements as before. Watching her we are reminded of a strange insect […]

Nicolas Puyjalon Works for Live Art Denmark2015: 3 Performances for Live Art for Børn 2 at Arken Art Museum Three PerformancesAt Live Art for Børn 2 Nicolas presented three different performances. All of them reacted directly to the space of Arken Museum, where the festival took place. He uses everydaz materials he either finds at the venue or buys cheaply to install his body in an unusual relationship with space or architecture. His actions are always precarious, no sacred art here, we rather follow a slightly confused man at work, assembling chairs, foam tubes, balloons with lots of tape, in order to address and understand the objects of his choice: […]

Marco Teubner (DE)

Marco Teubner Works for Live Art Denmark 2015 “Fly” and group performance with Black Market International at Kulstof 15 Fly Marco begins his performance, lying on his back on a table, moving slowly from side to side, a first image of flying. We might believe that the infernal creaking noises we hear emanate from the table, but they continue as Marco moves to the ground, places a bag of sugar with a small hole in it on the edge of the the table, and we see the sugar running out, like the sand in an hour glass. Marco dons a pair of fragile wings on his back, transforming  into a […]
