Participating artists in 2020–2022
Performance Home: An Archive by Louise Liliefeldt
In Louise Liliefeldt’s Performance Home project, the artist takes a deep dive through her personal archive of materials, photos and videos documenting her performance practice over the last 20 plus years.
Performance Home: from Toronto to Turkey by Simla Civelek
What would be like to go back and record a walk-through of this space, like an audience-less performance, like a home movie of a ghost of a home? The camera as all-seeing eye, from my apartment in Toronto to our apartment in Istanbul, through a distance of 8,196.58 kms?
Performance Home: to embrace the sky by Irene Loughlin
Loughlin’s body of research includes a series of experimental video performances using her body to reach and sustain contact with the “outside,” extending her arms through windows to establish a personal choreography with the sky and clouds.
