Black Market International

Black Market International Work with Live Art Denmark 2015: group performance at Kulstof 15, Nordkraft, Aalborg For a long durational group performance, members of the legendary performance collective (not a group!) Black Market International took over the vast hall of Nordkraft, a former coal fired power plant. Starting with a selection from their huge archive of helpful objects and action-images, amassed in more than 30 yeas of common practice, they quietly set out to act and interact, shape the atmosphere and temperature of the space for the given time of six hours.

A large red piece of drywall, blue paint and her signature blue sticks among them. Most amazing is a collection of small bones. We seem to recognize a monkey’s hand, maybe a cat’s torso. She connects the bones to build a kind of fetish that is attached to the red board. Using a length of rope that runs through the rig on the ceiling of the theatre, she struggles to lift the heavy board, which seems to weigh roughly as much as the performer, […]
