- JOHANNA ZWAIG at 3,14 – [12:00 - 16:00]
"THIS IS STILL A PROTEST"
I’ll cut the barbed wire. I’ll repeat this song.
”As a response to the fact that walls are thickening. As a response to the fact that voices are disappearing. I do long, insisting, repetitive performances. I repeat symbolic actions. I repeat dark songs, dark flamenco songs, learnt from Andalusian gitanos. This is my minimal form for protest. This is my concentrated room for reflection.”
Johanna Zwaig has studied theatre at École Internationale de Théâtre, Jacques Lecoq, in Paris, and flamenco in Jerez de la Frontera, Sevilla, Madrid, Paris and Oslo. Earlier presentations of her work include shows at Henie Onstad Art Centre, the Munch Museum, the Stenersen Museum, Kunstnernes Hus, Momentum Kunsthall, Hydrogenfrabrikken Kunsthall, Galleri BOA, Det Norske Teatret, La Bellevilloise (Paris) and La Générale (Paris); among others.
- ELENA KOVYLINA at Festplassen – [13:00]
THE PERFORMANCE WILL START FROM 3,14 at 13:00 AND MOVE ON TOWARDS FESTPLASSEN.
We are glad to announce that Elena Kovylina will be performing a Norwegian version in the Égalité series, a work characterized for satirical critique of social structures and democracy in contemporary society, creating a clear image of the many double standards in post-Soviet society. The project Égalité is a statement by the artist of the fact that inequality appears to be impossible to overcome, in particular in both past and present Russian society, but actually everywhere, whatever the political, social and cultural backgrounds.
Égalité is a poem of people, rhymed in four-legged footstools. The footstools’ legs have been extended, so that the people standing on them (who all differ in terms of gender, age, nationality, profession) are all on one level. Though they otherwise appear as they usually would, the tops of their heads have now been equalized and lined up in a row. But the resulting “equalized horizon” is no more than an illusion…
Elena Kovylina has held several solo exhibitions, and been part of many group shows such as Manifesta 10, Moscow Biennale (2nd, 3rd and 5th) and Biennale of Sydney 2006. Her work has also been featured at the Moscow Institute of Contemporary Art, MoMA, Hamburger Kunsthalle, and Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Italy), among others.
