I'm taking part in the Panel EXPANDING FIELDS, together with Jeroen Peeters, Lucie Strecker and Nikolaus Gansterer, moderated by Efva Lilja.
Based on their previous collaborations, artist and performer Eva Meyer-Keller and curator Bettina Knaup approached the boundary in an experimental format of lecture with performative elements, focusing in particular on water and plastic as epitomes of life and non-life. They explored, temporarily inhabited and questioned the fictional membrane between the living and the seemingly dead, the discarded, the trash and waste. Ubiquitous plastic bag formations play an important role in this.
ON THE LONG LASTING INTIMACY OF STRANGERS _
Ilya Noé & Eva Meyer-Keller, lecture performance, part of event series The Dynamic Archive _
Multi-disciplinary artists Eva Meyer-Keller and Ilya Noé started their shared dialogue in summer 2018, and since then have been slowly and consistently interweaving their practices and storylines with pointed intensity, intent and intimacy. In their lecture performance, which draws its title from a quote by Donna Haraway paraphrasing Lynn Margulis about how new life comes into being, Eva and Ilya will reflect on their present shared research located along the blurry boundary between scientific and artistic knowledge production. In addition, they will put a selection of their past works on stage and in conversation with each other as an attempt to share with the audience the unexpected effects and affects of their co-laborings, and to allow for new (re)readings, (re)phrasings, and symbiotic connections to continue to emerge.
