Curator, Art Dubai Commissions
It’s the right time to have a dedicated focus on performance art at the fair. There are no rules but risks to take. Performances tackle the idea of repetition: from rehearsal, to looping, to re-enactment and the status of the archive.
I am pursuing the idea of interrupting, diverting and disturbing the audience, turning them into the exhibited artwork. I believe this is something performance art and gestures do best. You can witness very genuine and memorable reactions; it is always rewarding to see people surprised, curious and intrigued by the art form.
