About

INVESTIGATION AS PERFORMANCE // PERFORMANCE AS INVESTIGATION

FRIISLAND was founded in 2021 to present and promote the discussion, documentation and development of research-based, interdisciplinary and performative practices. We have a special focus on the documentation of performative works, from reconstructions, event scores, photos, VR, text or oral descriptions. We are also open to collaborations with young or established artists and art students.

FRIISLAND is situated in the outer Nordhavn area of Copenhagen, across the future culture center, Tunnelfabrikken. We are engaged in our location in Nordhavn, a developing area of Copenhagen, as well as cooperating with local institutions and companies.

FRIISLAND Center for Performance Art is a project by Live Art Denmark, conceptualized by Ellen Friis and Henrik Vestergaard, who have been devoted to the demonstration, development, discussion and documentation of performative art forms in Denmark and abroad since 2004. The Center is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation: The Council for Visual Arts and The Council for Performing Arts.
