They will team up with artist spaces/collectives in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane and, in addition to the Paris program, will stream an hour of experimental performance to and from each venue. Nicola Morton from the Exist collective will be curating the Brisbane hour at Metro Arts; Zoe Scoglio has put together the program for Tape Projects in Melbourne (see RT111 for review or her receent show Shifting Ground); and Sari Kivinen an ex-pat Australian who runs Ptarmigan, an artist collective in Helsinki, Finland and Taalin, Estonia, will be in Sydney curating an hour of performance taking place at Alaska Projects.
There’s a lot on in the four hours but highlights might (depending on your proclivities) include Leena Riethmuller’s Saliva (Absorption) as part of the Brisbane program which will involve the artist grooming herself from a pool of her own pre-collected saliva. In Melbourne you can get up close and personal with Hannah Raisin’s Contact in which the artist will wrap herself in bubble wrap and you are invited to undertake the ever-so-satisfying task of popping the bubbles.
In Sydney, in the carpark that is Alaska Projects, Janet Meany will present Journey. Leaving white footsteps in bright yellow tumeric, she will trace a mandala-like circle in order to explore “the ephemerality of our naming and marking making as we journey through the cycle of life” (email from Sari Kivinen). Also in Sydney, Liam Benson (whose glamourous, glittery photos are currently on display as part of Sexes at Performance Space see RT111) will present a vocal performance using the acoustics of the carpark to explore his relationship with masculinity. There's a synchroncity between this and Onnie Art's Yasi in Brisbane, a duet for male and female voices and bodies symbolising "an elemental transmutation from female to male, water to fire" (press release).
