The first event in the series “Conversations on performance art”, hosted by Annette Arlander takes place on 26 February at 6 pm. The first guest is Leena Kela.

The talk will be in Finnish. 

REGISTER FOR THE EVENT HERE.

The first guest is performance artist and curator Leena Kela. The conversation will begin with her One Year Demonstration (2017-2018) and will probably touch at various approaches to repetition, duration and endurance.

Traditional values emphasized in performance art include the live and embodied presence of the artist in the here and now, together with the viewers or witnesses. This is of course hard to combine with a long duration. There are, however, canonical one year performances, like those created by Tehching Hsieh, Linda Montano and more recently for example Jamie McMurry.

The one year project by Leena Kela relates to this tradition, but also differs from it. This, among other things, will be a topic to be discussed at MUU Gallery.
