SICK! 2013: Under Observation
An afternoon of durational performance and video featuring:
Bleu Remix (Yann Marussich, Switzerland) - A stunning and unsettling visual meditation
on the nature of the body - a reflection on the relationship between inside and outside. Over the course of one hour, Yann Marrusich’s body is transformed, as a blue liquid gradually and magically seeps through his skin. The physical pathways between the interior and the exterior are startlingly revealed, but more, a complex relationship between interior consciousness and public perception is established. A live soundtrack provides a haunting response to the performance.
Mucus Factory (Martin O’Brien, UK) - A durational performance-installation which subverts the common representations of people with severe illness as icons of bravery or eliciting sympathy by presenting a transgressive but more realistic image of what it means to have a severe chronic illness. Presenting his body as a medical specimen, O’Brien literally performs medicine, taking physiotherapy, a common treatment for Cystic Fibrosis, from the hospital to the gallery space.
Short film screenings in collaboration with the live art development agenct -
A selection of films of documentation and performances to camera drawn from the Live Art Development Agency’s extensive archive. The works reflect the ways in which the practices of artists working with Live Art have engaged with and represented issues of illness in innovative and radical ways.
