Elke Mark (DE)

Elke Mark Work for Live Art Danmark 2015 “ARKENic” at Live Art for Børn 2 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. Once she enters the auditorium, she stands close to the kids and their grown ups in the darkened space. Her robe slowly spreads out and closes, evoking images of a giant breathing […]

Marita Bullmann Works for Live Art Danmark 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 Danmark2015 Three performances for Live Art for Børn 2 at Arken Art Museum in Ishøj 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 everyday 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 architectural elements […]

He begins what would become one of his last performances in Europe, sitting alone in a chair in an empty space . With his cane in hand, dressed in dark colors except for a bright red scarf that hangs haphazardly from his narrow shoulders, a sleep mask half covering his eyes, he simply speaks to the audience in a […]
