SIREN MAKING OF
Performance by Artur Chruszcz and Magdalena Mitterhofer
at PROCESSED BEINGS: INTERSUBJECTIVITY AND AUTHORSHIP
curated by Lou Cantor
6.08.2016 Uferstudios Berlin
Magdalena Mitthofer and Artur Cruscsz’s performance at the TransArt Triennial engages the self-referential rhetorics that have become familiar from “Making of…” documentaries and DVD commentaries on popular films.
The work encompass physical and nonphysical elements, rooted in the creative process and collective development of their earlier performance “Siren” (2016).
Exploring the vagaries of memory and the protocols of archiving, the performance seeks to highlight the friction between the ostensible ephemeralities of process and the fixity of documentation and historicisation.
