Watchlist: Athi-Patra Ruga

Athi-Patra Ruga ist ein südafrikanischer Künstler, der sich mit Mode und Performance beschäftigt, “exposing and subverting the body in relation to structure, ideology and politics”. Zu seiner Luftballon-Aktion: “The 4-hour performance begins with the ritualistic blowing of balloons and the dressing of the all 5 performers that make up the population of The White Women Of Azania thus far, the performance will culminate in a 60 minute procession from the Drill Hall on Plein St to the Standard Bank Art Gallery on Anderson St in the Johannesburg CBD. This is a continuation of the artist’s exploration alternative rituals as a means of intervention, something that is a huge influence also in each of the artist’s performances. In creating these rituals, the artist performs a kind of Jacobinistic purge of the staid and unimaginative in all aspects of existence.” Via

Watchlist: VELI & AMOS

Das slowenisch-schweizerische Künstlerduo Veli Silver (* 1983) & Amos Angeles (* 1986) hat eine wunderbare Reihe von Action-Painting-Performances mit Sprühdosen realisiert (u.a. mit dem einzigartigen Christian Falsnaes). Und nebenbei hat das Duo auch noch einen Film über sich selbst gedreht – und diesen kurzerhand “Style Wars 2” genannt. Frech, frech. Übrigens auch absolut hörbar: die Musikvideos/Songs der zwei Tausendsassa…

“Style Wars 2 is a graffiti documentary produced by Veli and Amos, a Swiss-Slovenian artist duo. The movie is a sequel of the cult movie “Style Wars” from 1983 and gives an update on today’s graffiti and street art scene, in a very unique and entertaining format. 30 years after the release of Style Wars, the movie that helped spread the graffiti movement from New York around the world, Veli and Amos, the producers and main protagonists of Style Wars 2, hit the road to discover new graffiti styles and meet the artists behind. A wild journey takes them from Europe to New York and the Middle East, from galleries to war zones. The movie is a well-quoted homage to the original Style Wars movie and at the same time tells the personal story of Veli and Amos. Even though the movie’s main focus is on graffiti, it approaches the topic in a much broader way, and also alludes to politics, art and lifestyle.”

Casey Jenkins: Stricken mit der Vagina

Casting Off My Womb“: Die neue Arbeit der australischen Performance-Künstlerin und Aktivistin Casey Jenkins. “Casting Off My Womb is a 28 day performance piece first performed at the Darwin Visual Arts Association (DVAA) from October to November, 2013. The performance consists of me sitting on a plain wooden chest in the gallery space and knitting from wool lodged in my vaginal tunnel, one skein of wool each day, to mark a full menstrual cycle. As the passage of knitting grows longer it is suspended from the ceiling on wire coat-hangers. As each day of knitting passes, a manual calendar is clicked over to mark the number of days remaining until the piece will be “cast off”.” Via
