narratingsplitscreen-letterbox

We will give a performative artists’ talk on Thursday 24th November at 7pm as part of the Linear Momentum group exhibition at the Galerie im Körnerpark in Neukölln (Schierker Str. 8, 12051 Berlin), curated by Conny Becker

We will present our daily practice of recording everywhere we go with GPS and the outcome of this as trace and line. We will also perform an excerpt from Narrating Our Lines, in which we play an animation of journeys from previous years and try to remember the human events behind the abstracted traces. The animation was created for us as open source software by Peter Vasil.

Our engraved acrylic piece All Our Traces in Berlin 2011 and Dan’s Drawing Machine II are also on display as part of the exhibition which runs until January 22nd.

plan b at KW in Berlin for General Public in Exile

On Thursday 11th December we are taking part in General Public in Exile and Errant Bodies‘ event reality is a very strong move at KW Institute for Contemporary Art (Auguststraße 69, 10117 Berlin). Doors open at 7pm, 3 Euro admission (we are currently scheduled to be the first performance, at 7pm)

We will be performing an extract from our live durational performance Narrating Our Lines, where we set the database of our GPS traces running and use it as a prompt for our memories of where we were and what we were doing.

“Errant Bodies and General Public open the doors for an evening in exile, presenting performances and works that use performance as a term. Chosen kin plays an important role, as do relationships, expanded networks, political action, music, and silent interventions.
How are fractured, individual narratives and biographies related to cultural-geographic histories, and how do they come to play in a collective at large? There is only a fine line between (self)definition and questioning existence as such. You could take it with a smile, but you can just as easily fall apart completely at the confrontation with the foreign that exists inside ourself.
With Gilles Aubry, Fabienne Audeoud, Antonia Baehr, Serge Baghdassarians, Graw Böckler, Chat, Kane Do, Discoteca Flaming Star, Ernesto Estrella, Deli Gleba, Akın Kazuk, Eva Meyer Keller, Käthe Kruse, Edda Kruse-Rosset, Brandon LaBelle, Michael Laurent, Ligna, plan b, Kirsten Reese, Catarina Santos, Heidi Sill, Annette E. Stahmer, Dorothy Valence, Antje Vowinckel, Jeremy Woodruff, and Ella Ziegler.”

Narrating Our Lines is made possible using specially commissioned open source software written by Peter Vasil.

We hope to see you there
