Works with Live Art Danmark
2021 interactive performance work “As a Group or Alone“, Artist in Residence , presentation at Friisland juleparty.
As a group or alone
During the second live performance event at our project space Friisland, which doubled as our Christmas party, we presented our then artist in residence, Adam James (UK/SE) who worked with augmented reality and live action role play. He came to Copenhagen for a week with his family, mainly to work on a new short script for one of his Live Action Role Plays with students from a local school. The aim was to create a game which could be played from one to any number of players and eventually become part of a publication for artists and educators. At Friisland, the floor was crawling with grown ups, who turned into children, creating a map on the floor of the space with tape.
About the Artist
Adam James (b. 1978) is a British artist living and working in Sweden. James makes sculptural objects, environments and live and digital works which emanate his steadfast involvement in the use of live action role play (larp) as a tool to explore empathetic processes. Within his live works, James invites participants to assume roles and characters within a loose fiction with the goal of overcoming real or fictionalised oppositions. James uses larp as a tool to trigger, on a micro level, future possibilities, new forms of collaborative democracy and the temporary dismantling of hierarchies.
