Work for Live Art Danmark
2013 “T.E.R.R.Y.” at Samtalekøkken

Pathosformel presented their performance installation T.E.R.R.Y at Samtalekøkken in 2013. The installation dealt with issues of collaboration and competition between human and non human entities, and filled the vast space of Nikolaj Kunsthal. It consisted of sparse blue lights and fragile wooden objects that reminded the viewer of miniature football goals. The lights flicker, the goals move around, seemingly by themselves, while a soundtrack of trancy electronics, accompanied a hushed female voice plays.

About the Artists
Pathosformel was founded in Venice in 2004 by Daniel Blanga Gubbay and Paola Villani, both students of Giorgio Agamben, and influenced by the study of Aby Warburg from whose work the name Pathosformel was derived. The group was awarded several prices and residencies and disbanded in 2014.

The group did not leave a lot of traces online, but here is one.

Om liveart_dk was founded in 2004 in Copenhagen to promote the discussion, documentation and development of live art in Denmark. The organisation is equally inspired by the imaginative and entertaining English Live Art tradition as by the theoretical and political German theatre tradition. We have organised 10 large international festivals of Live Art for kids and adults since 2004, and over 40 discussion events, books, video series, symposia and more in the field of live art, performance art, art criticism and documentation. We collaborate with theatres, music venues, art museums and festivals in Denmark and internationally.
