This theme explores what nature-culture relations mean in an environmental context, and here specifically in the context of the location - having nature nearby though shaped by its cultural context and infrastructures for city-dwellers and tourists.
For this performance protocols event, we have invited two members of PAB to create and perform instruction-based performances that deal with the environment in relation to Bergen's positioning with nature and culture colliding, how they affect each other. These two artists are:
- Hans Christian van Nijkerk with the participatory performance "#Influenced".
- Ingeborg Blom Andersskog with the score "When I move I change" which will be performed by another member of PAB.
As part of the event in Bergen, performance protocols will include scores from two Nordic artists invited by the curator, which will be actions offered for local interpretation. These two artists are:
- Elina Vainio (FI) with the score "Nosewitness (considering circulations)" to be performed by another from performance protocols.
- Maja Gade (DK) with the participatory score "Colour Mapping of Stones".
In the afternoon on May 28. there will be an informal discussion about collaborations and instructions with Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen/performance protocols and Performance Art Bergen.
The event will be from 13-17:
Performances and processes from kl. 13-16 and discussion from kl. 16-17
