Leena Kela is a performance artist who also works with performance art pedagogy, photography and video. In her work she wants to approach the other and the concept of otherness. How does a human being, an animal, nature or even self manifest itself as other?
For Live Art for Børn 2016 she will present “Performance-alfabetet”: Leena Kela occurs in materials and objects which are typical for performance art. The work is based on over 15 years of studying the art form. She has selected 26 materials and objects that make performance art alphabet, and performs with them in a (nonverbal) performance from A to Z. If B is a balloon, is P piss or paper? What do you think?
For Samtalekøkkenet, November 2012, she presented “Performance Performance”; a recipe for inventing and creating a performance from scratch in 30 minutes.
For Live Art for Børn 3 she will perform her performance alphabet.
