 Performature: Performateur

Conceived and Led by WeiZen Ho.

A collective of installation, sound and performing artists will explore ways of extending their visual and performance boundaries spatially and conceptually.

In this process they will consider reformulating the language/vocabulary that has been built up around their practices over time. The provocation is to identify and play with the concept of “performature and performateur”, investigating how those terms could shift their approach towards performance-devising.

The collective consists of: Concept: WeiZen Ho; installation artists: Sue Callanan, Margaret Roberts, Kirtika Kain; performance artists: Stella Chen, Ryuichi Fujimura, Nicola Heywood, WeiZen Ho, Alan Schacher, Phillip Mills; Musicians: Laura Altman, Romy Caen, Phillipa Murphy-Haste, Melanie Herbert, Peter Farrar, Melanie Eden, Luiz Gabriel Gubeissi, Rhys Mottley; film artist: Hina Mir; product design student: Oliver Damian. Assisted by Madeline Menca and Sarah Keighery.

More details will be posted on http://articulate497.blogspot.com as the project evolves.

The collective mix changes, expanding and contracting over the course of the whole week. Articulate will be open for:
