Martin O’Brien (UK)

Martin O’Brien Martin’s work considers existence with a severe chronic illness within our contemporary situation. Martin suffers from cystic fibrosis and his practice uses physical endurance, hardship and pain based practices to challenge common representations of illness and examine what it means to be born with a life threatening disease. His work is an act of resistance to illness, an attempt at claiming agency and a celebration of his body. Martin loves his body and his work is a form of sufferance in order to survive. Martin showed “Breathe for me” as part of Samtalekøkkenet at “It is about time” at Dansehallerne  

Cecilie Ullerup Schmidt (DK)

Cecilie Ullerup Schmidt Work for Live Art Denmark 2014 “Zoo” for Now and Again Zoo “Zoo” is an original video created for our series of video performances,  “Now and Again”. It is a living-room performance, exhibiting the vain need to be remembered. The interest of the work is a time-based portrait. In the live moment of the performance an improvised personae is unfolded over two hours. In the repeatable video portrait cut down to twenty minutes this performed subjectivity is edited, shaped and consolidated into a contradictory and tamed portrait of the artist as a young woman. Editing and sound are explicitly commenting the act of auto-portraiture as the performance […]

His performance was broadcasted live via Skype to our event. While Adam performed, there was dead silence amongst the young acting students. Many of them literally sat with open mouths – they had never seen anything like this before! Most of us concentrated on watching a good performance. Adam chewed a whole packet of chewing gum and worked with a big hammer. He had paid 34 […]
