Two new works: Words In Movement and Variations, made in collaboration with Berta Roth are in post-production. Working in Amsterdam, this week I met with Sonologist Sara Pinheiro and Remco Hekker of Photon Power (both of whom worked on the Madame B feature film and 19-channel video installation).
Sara will sound mix both films, adding texture and audio layers. Remco, a self-confessed reluctant colourist, has worked on the films' texture, applying a subtle Velvia film grade to soften and unify the shots. Needless to say, he has rescued a number of shots that were in desperate need of help. The project is close to completion, and now the search for where to show it will begin.
The event will be a sleepover at Project Space Roos Breeuwer on Wednesday 16th April from 16:00hr.
All things vocal, oral, ingested, spoken, slurred, sung, shouted and snored will be celebrated from the late afternoon into the night.
The Project Space will provide a shelter to continue the conversation into the night, to sleep on it, to dream, to wake up with our hair dishevelled, to get to know each other better...
17:00 video screenings, performance from Anna Frijstein "How to Sleep for Money"
18:00 Michelle will lead a re-enactment of Lygia Clark's 1973 event Baba Antropofágica [Cannibalistic Slobber]. This event is designed for 2B members to participate in.
19:30 Dinner with Roos Breeuwer
20:30 Cindy Moorman - Revisiting Museum Nacht and a discussion on her new performance projects
21:30 video screenings and drinks
22:00 Live performance from The Tight Jans
23:00 DJ Sets, featuring Carolin Hansson and Uffe
There is room in the schedule for spontaneous interventions, so seize your moment.
You can make your own way to the space, or we can meet at 16:15 at Centraal Station, at the tram stop to take line 26 to Stop Vennepluimstraat.
If you are travelling by bus you can take the number 66 in the direction of Ijburg. The stop is also Vennepluimstraat.
Although food and drinks will be provided, it would be great if you could add to the event, by bringing additional snacks and drinks, this will help keep the event going...
This event has been supported by Rietveld, Mondriaan Fonds and Project Space Roos Breeuwer, special thanks to Yvonne, Pinque, Roos, Velislava Dakova and Shunyao Yu.
Michelle Williams Gamaker will give a workshop entitled "Sunday Family Workshop: Family Fictions - Clan Camera" on 13 April at Parasol Unit in central London.
The workshop will draw upon Dawood’s interest in the surreal, myth and ritual, and will consider the power of production stills in myth making and storytelling. All families have their own rituals, which contribute to making us part of our “clan”.
Each family will create a clan-identity through an assortment of props and costumes sourced by the artist. Once dressed as a family unit, you will be set the task of becoming a “clan-camera”, a type of living camera, with each member working together to create a collective filming vessel. You will be sent into the gallery to record an experimental film of the show.
You can do this any way you like; the only rule is that you cannot separate from the group! At the end of the workshop, each family will stage a group portrait that represents your experience as a clan-camera. The photo will be your memento and will double as a production still for the possible film that can be made from the footage.
