PERFORMANCE / TEXTILES
For Friisland’s second exhibition we have selected three artists who work with textiles and performance. The exhibition is a collection of three projects that combine fabrics and performance.
Essi Kausalainen is one of Finlands most exciting performance artists. She often investigates the exchange of energies between beings. Essi has created a site-specific opera performance for VR. The opera is called “B” nd is performed by soprano Katinka Frida Bohse Meyer (DK), performance artist Laura Cemin (ITA) and actor/singer Yuko Takeda (JPN).
Francis Patrick Brady’s work “The Ignorant Gamesmaster” was created during a recidency at Copenhagen Contemporary and Friisland in October 2021.
The gamesmaster is like Jacques Rancières “Schoolmaster” in an all-knowing position. But what happens with the game if he or she doesn’t know the rules? The game is played on a textile board created for this work. Also, the textiles that the gamesmaster is wearing is an essential component of this work (or non-game).
Sif Hedegaard is a Danish artist educated at Det Fynske Kunstakademi. She performed at Friisland on October 15th with the work “Out of Body Garment”., Here she puts on and sheds modified clothing objects. The objects from the performance are left as an exhibit and will be altered and manipulated until her final performance work at finissage, December 3rd 2021.
