Black book - Manus till performance
Royal Institute of Art.
2013 (Swedish)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis [Artistic work]
Abstract [en]

The contextualisation is related to, and wants to complete my master's essay Black Book which consists of scripts for performances. All the scripts have been performed live. A DVD with selected performances from 2009-2012 is also part of the essay. The contextualisation describes what I do in my work and relates it to fellow performance artists and inspirations such as Tamy Ben-Tor and Pierrick Sorin while Black Book is the text I use when I perform.

I am interested in the mundane and the temporary, in what disappears. Therefore, i have mostly worked with performance and time-based works. What interests me in the performance is the physical apperance, to dwell in a room and have contact with the viewer by telling and keeping eye contact. I can't maintain eye contact with everyone in a big room, but I can keep eye contact with some and stay serious, don't laugh it off. By speaking quietly, I can also keep the audience's attention. The audience wonders what will happen, something happens, it's almost interesting, and they stay some more and some more, until it's over. This tension which arises in the room during a performance is the relationship between me and the audience. Without it there is no work to share. By also working with other, more stable media such as video, I rest from looking at myself, assuming that I do not appear in the video. Pictures I see with my own eyes can provide a larger space for me to work. Maybe I want to recreate the experience of searching but not finding, and of the sad and humorous in this. The feeling of being in a dead end is volatile. The parlous part, the art, is to evoke this feeling and fixate it.
