Performance Voyage 4
Cateringa & Kompanen
It’s time for a new series of PAEkort at the Wolfart Projectspace in Charlois Rotterdam. In this edition we have 2 artists living and working in our hometown and a guest performer from the UK.
Time is Jessica’s important companion; other than the usual starting time of the event 19:30 hrs., her performance will already be running for more than 11 hours. The performance begins on Wednesday 26, at 8 in the morning and continues for 2 days and 2 nights, ending on Friday morning 8 o’ clock.
Pooogen is the title, which means ‘‘striving’‘, striving the impossible goal of drawing a perfect circle is the pursuit. To do so, Jessica van Deursen has more than 20 meters of paper at her disposal, which she will fill up with circles for exactly 48-hours continuously. Pooogen is part of a series of three performances that together function as her final exam for her master’s degree at Codarts in Rotterdam. You are welcome to visit from February 26, 8 am till February 28, 8 am.
Do you know that feeling, the desire of being part of a natural environment, while on the other the feeling of being out of context in that same environment? For this performance Sarojini Lewis uses her nomadic existence of her family through Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Scotland and the Netherlands. Her works balances on the personal narrative, using video, photo and stories.
What do you have to do to create an official identity? Who is Fernanda Romero? What will Sarojini bring to us after spending 9 months in South of America? And what roll will Heath Bunding play, whom she met through his identity project?
Each PAEkort event we screen a part of the ‘Performance Voyage 4’. A series of international video performances themed “Self-portrait” curated by artists association MUU gallery Helsinki. Performance Voyage 4 presents video performances by 15 artists and collectives. The compilation was selected from among work submitted in response to an open international call for artists. The theme of self-portrait offers a variety of possibilities for the artists as well the audience: the compilation challenges the spectator to reflect their own self as well.
Performance Voyage series is screened across Europe. The venues vary across Europe and all over the world; screenings will be held for example in Sweden, Great Britain, Germany, USA and Canada.”
Cateringa & Kompanen is a conceptual catering collective that provides interactive eating-experiences, anywhere between food and (performance) art. This PAE Cateringa & Kompanen will be starting and displaying their own 48-hour food project. Come and experience this beginning!
