buren by buren
In the performance buren by buren we combine installation, video and performance. The videos portray women doing certain gestures that stem from daily activities. They reflect on how women are depicted in art history, contemporary art and in our society. The performance is a combination of tutorials, house tours, advertisement, etiquette and games, all with a great deal of care. The result is an installation that refers to domestic architecture, a constantly changing scene in which videos are shown and where the scenography is a performance.Through text and certain actions we use the visitor’s imagination to enter into new spaces and create a different glance on the installed space again and again. Some members of the audience once told us it was like something between Jacques Tati and Chantal Akerman.
