Sokolowsko Part 2

image

Longva+Carpenter have been in Sokolowsko for one week! We thoroughly enjoyed teaching the workshop on site-specific, collaborative visual art performance to nine participants. This is one exercise in which all nine had to work together, silently, to fit on one chair! We are also looking forward to their presentations following additional workshops with Alastair MacLennan and Adina Bar-On.

Sokolowsko Part 1

image

Longva+Carpenter made it to the enchanting Sokolowsko: full of natural wonders (the “best air” in all of Poland), engaging artists, generous hosts and eager and interesting workshop participants. The photos show the In Situ Foundation co-founder, Bozenna Biskupská giving curator Małgorzata Sady, artist Alastair MacLennan and Longva a tour of the overwhelming, amazing former Sanatorium. It’s well underway for a total reconstruction, and we got an early, inside peek. More photos to come! Read more about Sokolowsko’s history here.

A woman in a shimmering gold dress echoing the frames on the walls of the Musée d’Orsay, walks into one of the institution’s most famous galleries. She proceeds to sit down in front of Gustave Courbet’s “Origin of the World” (1866) and pull up her dress—
via hyperallergic  the video shows the brief performance and the crowds reaction (spoiler alert, its applause), but it also shows an amazingly calm museum staff who take their time resolving the situation
the artist’s name is Deborah de Robertis (via: nearlya)

Performance Works-in-Progress by Longva+Carpenter

June 6, 7pm – 9pm, with artists’ reception

NOoSPHERE ARTS
251 E Houston Street, NYC

Longva+Carpenter are pleased to present an evening of short but linked performance works-in-progress exploring the nature of expectation, both external and internalized. In ways both global and personal our culture glorifies dehumanization through isolation. In response, the artists strive to honor our messy, mismatched, embodied humanity.

Chinese artist has rib removed... and wears it as a necklace

Note from a performance curator, sent to the paper, correcting the press errors in the linked article: 

"I would really appreciate if you please could make a statement correcting your article on He Yunchang who’s work you recently wrote about.

For some reason that goes beyond my understanding you are mixing two works in your article on this great Chinese artist, i.e. One RIb froo 2008 and One Meter of Democracy (Chinese title is Asking the Tiger for its Skin) from 2010.

You write about them as if it was one work. One Meter of Democracy has nothing to do with One Rib. Both performances were realized in different years, and have of course not the same meaning. Describing them as one work kills of course the signification of each work.

I don’t know how you can make this grave journalistic error, but I do hope that you have some kind of journalistic deontology and can make a correction.”

Sincerely Yours,

Jonas Stampe, curator
