performance, VERBO 2010, Galeria Vermelho, Sâo Paulo, Brazil
duration 5 consecutive days for one hour
The performace is about the time prior to that what is coming, preparations for an intense encounter or an enigmatic action. Situations; research models to which a man subjects himself. It is a series of five performances in which Mariëlle Videler examines the quest for physical and spiritual beauty and power. The performances are reproductions of her archive that she changes with minimal intervention.
The series opened with the performance 'Kore – made in China'
in 2008 that she realized for the occasion of the international performance
festival ‘Something Raw’ in Amsterdam (NL). Each performance
lasted exactly one hour and was performed by a preselected group of
ten participants. The audience was invited to walk around freely during
the performance and where included in the physically
created time zone.
