Demonstrations - Photographic Documentation of Live Performances

posted on 2021-03-26, 09:08 authored by Robert LuzarRobert Luzar

Demonstrations is a set of works that combines thirteen online videos, specifically on YouTube, with video documentation of twelve live-art performances that ‘un-work’ the original thirteen online videos. The demonstrations research different kinds of ‘trace’ through combined methods that use body (subjective, communal), DIY performance, scores, video documentation, participation and event; they invoke audiences to do (or try) incomplete works that, inherently, seem un-working, mundane, politically ambiguous, and thus ‘inoperative’.
