About the performance “relation[site]sounding”:
Two performers are interacting with and searching for sounds within the hotel room. The focus is on the sounding of objects and the relations they create in the space. There is no amplification. There will be action and silence. The performers and all elements should be regarded as an assemblage of vibrant matter. Becoming, relating, affecting. Within the performance there will be a shift in dynamics both between the performers and in the actions. Only elements already in the room are used.

Blue Blood was an art installation created for the first floor of 1000fryd for the Culture Night October 11, 2002. Seventeen years later this material is to be re-visited in the same room that houses Art Room 1000fryd today. The project is thus site-specific and for this actualization and de/reconstruction dependent on this specific space.
In its original form Blue Blood was also a deconstruction, a reinterpretation of identity and gender roles as we know them. The installation was part of a series of art projects working with the rewriting of normative ideals. Now this narration needs to be shaken again. The original installation should here be regarded as the main text whose elements are discussed through their de/reconstruction. Meanings are broken down and new connections emerge where fragments from previous appearances and dialogues create new dissonances and resonances.
The remains will be installed in the room for the next two days, along with the sound of the opening performance and its actions. Here an interaction occurs between the action itself (which is in the past, the ephemeral) and the performance document as installation (the traces of both the deconstruction and the original installation). This dual reference raises questions to what happens during the reactivation of artistic material, where a historical relation is created to the artist’s practice, both then and now.
