DAY PROGRAM / on-going performances: 12-6PM (FREE)

Extra-Rational is a series of performances by emerging Canadian artists that embrace the aesthetics of popular culture and seek to recuperate/utilize these “low brow” processes of production and cognition. The artists in Extra-Rational intentionally make use of aesthetic choices and methods of production that directly challenge the rubric of highbrow vs. lowbrow culture. These artists use the position of the trivialized, the unmentionable, the frivolous, the carnal and the other as a means to challenge the rationalization of high culture.

Iris Fraser-Gudrunas is a visual artist, curator and filmmaker currently based in Toronto, Canada. Fraser-Gudrunas’ work investigates candid reactions ranging from apprehension to abandon. Fraser has exhibited and curated shows with many groups in Toronto including PleasureDome, Film Fort, Blocks Recording Club, Don Blanche Residency, Artscape Gibraltar Point Residency, Images Festival, Hart House Film Club and Splice This!

Johnny Forever (a.k.a. Johnny Nawracaj) is a Polish-born transgendered artist currently based in Montréal, Canada. Forever’s growing body of work includes durational/installation performance as well as staged pieces, which weave surrealist narrative through the use of song, video, dance/gesture and drag costuming.

Marisa Hoicka is an emerging artist who divides her time between Montréal and Toronto, Canada. Hoicka works in a variety of mediums including painting, performance, fibre art and breakdancing. She has exhibited her work in galleries such as Gallery 401 and Art Mur. Hoicka holds a BFA in Studio Arts from Concordia University.  

Amy Lam lives and works in Toronto, Canada. Lam is part of the conceptual comedy duo Life of a Craphead. Life of a Craphead regularly performs on comedy club and other live entertainment stages, most frequently appearing at the Rivoli in Toronto. Lam has completed residencies in the United Sates and the Netherlands and has presented work at venues such as Gallery TPW, Double Double Land and the Rhubarb Festival at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre.

Amy Jenine Ling Wong is a video and performance artist based in Toronto, Canada. Wong’s work investigates internet meme and online youth culture. Wong has performed and exhibited at venues such as Whippersnapper Gallery, JMB Gallery, White House, XPACE and Red Head Gallery. She is currently completing her BA in Visual Studies at the University of Toronto.
Lisa Visser is a visual artist and curator currently based in Toronto, Canada.  Visser’s work focuses on sculpture, performance, textile and printmaking. She holds a BFA from Queens University and is currently enrolled in the Interdisciplinary Master's of Art, Media and Design at OCAD University.

Gale Allen is a visual artist currently based in Toronto, Canada. Allen's practice investigates the aesthetics of revolt present in popular culture. Recent projects include You Call Yourself A Lady (Hysteria Festival, Buddies in Bad Times Theatre), All I Ever Wanted (Hatch, Harbourfront Centre), and Must be the colours and the kids that keep me alive (Pleasure Dome).

We started last year with the initiative of connecting with festivals addressing women creativity, and by a lecture and visual presentation introduced the City of Women at FEM Festival (Girona, Spain). This first step enhanced the interest in further collaboration in a form of programme exchange. Thus this year's FEM edition will have a special focus dedicated to the City of Women and the presentation of female performers' creativity from Slovenia and broader region. Due to the fact that Girona-based festival's objective is to present the pioneers of performing arts as well as promote female artists of younger generations, CoW selection encompasses Vlasta Delmar (Croatia), Dubravka Duba Sambolec (Slovenia) – both in the pioneer section – and Milijana Babi_ (Croatia) – section of younger generation performers.

Lecture: 13.3.2011 18h. Producing and exhibiting performance: a case study
by Solvej Ovesen

The 8th Extension Series presents performances of the German Florian Feigl and the Polish Arti Grabowski. This Extension’s focus is to create a show based on both video-performance and live performance. Combining mediated actions with actions in real time; the artists underline once again the differences between the live and the mediated, integrating both aspects in a complex performance/video-installation.

Florian Feigl (b. 1970) lives and works in Berlin, and has been creating performance art work since 1997. Besides solo work, Feigl also collaborates with various artists and artists' collectives (Wagner-Feigl Forschung/Festspiele, Jörn J. Burmester). Feigl co-organizes the monthly performance art event “Performer Stammtisch” in Berlin with Janine Eisenächer and Jörn J. Burmester, and curates the performance art event “Burmester und Feigl zeigen Performancekunst” with Jörn J. Burmester at Volksbühne Berlin. Feigl has been teaching performance art workshops at various German and European art schools and institutions since 2001. He also writes about performance art for German and international fanzines and art magazines.

His recent works focus on badly built balances, crash tests, unlucky circumstances and also recurrently on zombies. These subjects and their dynamics have recently drawn interest in fields such as artistic practice as research and organization of knowledge. Occasionally, they have also found surprising acknowledgment as possible applications within processes of urban and sociological development as well as co-operative entrepreneurship.

The focus of his most recent artwork is the experimental 24hour video 300. Prologue for 300 is a set of five-minute/300-second long performances. The performances are part of a body of approximately 300 sequences, which will form the planned 24-hour experimental video film 300. These performances explore many diverse fields such as the artistic, social, sculptural/iconographic and ethnological, amongst others.

The idea behind 300 is to cope with the massively increased use of the word “performance“ for and within a paralleled expansion in number of contexts and areas of knowledge, information and life. One must be aware that “performance“ appears in more and more areas and situations generally referred to as everyday life – in other words what is commonly perceived as reality. Life is rapidly becoming a series of performances – without clear boundary between performance and real life! Is everything actually performance? Is this a fact to be welcomed – or to be confronted? It is high time that we have specialists answering the question of what is and isn’t a performance.

Arti Grabowski is the son of a forester and a nurse. Molded from two opposite traits, he went on in life to become a boxer, sculptor, actor, painter, drummer, founder of the first local councils and youth parliaments in Poland and Ukraine, co-organizer of the first concerts of the Wielka Orkiestra Pomocy Foundation, and president of the Academic Sports Club at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kracow. This year, he ceased being a patriot, a Catholic and an artist.

He has been so discouraged by people that he has also ceased to be a man. Rather he is now but a performative animal immunized by the vaccine of absurd, distance, and enthusiasm. Sometimes he is unpredictable, but more often he is known as the heart of a dove. His work is a shaky idiom. It exudes a dose of emotions: it entertains, scares, surprises, but it is never boring. Sometimes he shows an uncompromising respect to himself and the audience - as proven by a collection of documented injuries acquired while performing around the world.

He admits that he had been sentenced to performance from the beginning, as he was born to a father who was a forester, miner, extreme rebel, and artist known for being a "painter of gesture." A true high school of art, which bore the name Tadeusz Kantor. He began his studies at the Krakow Academy of Fine Arts - the Mecca of living arts – and defended his Diploma at the Faculty of Sculpture in the performance art, which was unprecedented in Poland. Currently, he is finishing his Ph.D. proceedings and co-runs Poland's first Performance Art Studio at his alma mater with Prof. Artur Tajber. He lives in the Performers Street... Subordinated all his life to the art of performance.

Galerie SAW Gallery presents, in collaboration with the La Petite Mort Gallery, University of Ottawa, Sexual Overtones, Venus Envy and Inside Out LGBT Film and Video Festival: The ecosexual wedding of Elizabeth Stephens, Annie Sprinkle and YOU to the Snow.

"Together we will shift the metaphor from 'Earth as Mother' to 'Earth as Lover' and marry the Snow in order to garner more love, care and appreciation for water—and for the sheer pleasure of it."

Saturday, March 26, 2011
Saint Brigid’s Centre for the Arts
310 St. Patrick Street, Ottawa
Gather at 2:30PM
Ceremony at 3PM
Reception from 4:30PM to 6:30PM

For more info about Annie and Beth's past wedding projects: http://www.loveartlab.org

Celebrate the last year of Sprinkle and Stephens' seven-year Love Art Laboratory project as they marry the snow. You can attend as a guest witness, or volunteer to be a guest collaborator. Choose from the list of roles below or offer your own unique contribution. You don’t have to focus on Annie and Beth—your offering can be about the themes of the wedding: Snow, water, ecology, bliss, ecosexuality, white, silver and love.

No talents or special skills are required. Offer whatever you would like to do—as traditional or experimental as you would like it to be. You decide.

Collaborating in an art wedding is a fun and exciting way to express yourself. As a way to say thank you, collaborators will be acknowledged in our official program, in print and online at http:/www.loveartlab.org. Our wedding ephemera is often exhibited in galleries and publications with proper credit given to each artist. Participating in our wedding celebration is a great chance to make friends, spread love to others in the community and raise awareness for environmental causes to show our beloved planet how much we love her/him.

Looking for performance artist–types to be the ring bearer, flower boy/girl/trannie, mother or father of the bride...Play the "organ," create experimental ambient sounds (live or gather recordings), or be the person who objects to the wedding. Offer a song, dance, gesture, ritual or performance. We also need environmental activists to highlight the ecological facts about water issues. (Think Fluxus art, experimental and conceptual art styles. Not variety-show styles.)

Help out with serving, perform, participate or make a toast. Celebrate with us by offering whatever talents or activities you can imagine.

Help produce our wedding! Be an usher, a production assistant or a sound person. Help with the lights or assist the performers. Be our make-up artists or dressing room attendant, or media liaisons or “stage” managers. We will need a hand with all things production...

To make this wedding a truly collaborative community effort, we invite companies, organizations and individuals to sponsor the festivities. Help out by printing programs, donating the food, beverages, wedding cake, flowers, decorations, environmentally friendly dishes and cutlery. All sponsors are credited in our wedding program, in print and online at loveartlab.org, and we will promote you however possible.

Help us remember this day! Take photos, shoot some wedding video, sketch, paint, or tweet, blog or write about the wedding.

Assist with the creation of the wedding programs. Make decorations, flower arrangements, boutonnières, bouquets and party favors. Bring white decorations or help us to make them. Help us make this an unforgettable ecosexual celebration of Annie, Beth and everyone's union to the snow.

Tickets are available in advance at Venus Envy and Galerie SAW Gallery for only $10. All collaborators and performers will be admitted free-of-charge. All guests must wear something white, inspired by our city's beautiful winter snow. Be formal or informal. Be as costumy as you like. Try to outdo the brides! Also, please bring some and all your shredded paper for the ceremony.

For more information or to offer your time and creativity, please contact Wedding Planner Kathleen Nicholls at Galerie SAW Gallery at clubsaw@artengine.ca or (613) 236-6181.

PAS Project - from me to you 27th March 2011, at 3pm
Kunstfabrik Am Flutgraben 3 - 12435 Berlin

With “men only” (October 2010) BBB Johannes Deimling has started a series of performance art events with a special focus on performance art practices. The next performance art afternoon with the title "from me to you" will focus on a specific idea of cooperation.

8 young international artists are invited to write a performance for one of the other artists. The audience will see 8 performances performed not by the author of the piece. The artists have been in contact with each other to find ideas for the concept. It is not about showing an individual piece; it is more about drawing attention and respect to the work, the person and to understand the process of creation in a different way. Each performance will not be any longer than 10 minutes. During the breaks we will serve coffee, tea and cake. The event is financed by pas performance art studies and will be documented by Matthias Pick (photo) and Christopher Hewitt (video).

Entrance: 5 Euro
