The last days of Performances Invisibles

Performances Invisibles (Invisible Performances) is the third solo exhibition by conceptual artist Steve Giasson.
It is realised as part of the ‘Micro Interventions in public space’-section from the
DARE-DARE Center of Dissemination of Multidisciplinary Art, in Montreal, Canada.
The project consists of 130 performances and is staggered over a full year:
from July 7, 2015 to July 7 2016.

Performances Invisibles first took the form of performative statements, ideas of works, recorded in writing.  Although they can stand on their own, they call and describe many minimal or enigmatic gestures. Often the statements are taken from everyday life or from the history of art. They can be placed in public or in private space.

The statements are published twice a week on performancesinvisibles.dare-dare.org (French, English and Spanish), and they are shared on the DARE-DARE’s Facebook page.

Steve Giasson activates the statements. The documents surrounding these activations are available on the website. Everybody is welcome to activate these performative statements at any time (also after July 7) and without prior authorization. If you do so, you are kindly requested to send any form of documentation. It will be added to the corresponding statements.

Unnoticed Art Festival #2

On June 24/25 2016 the 222lodge will organise a second festival for Unnoticed Live Art in an undisclosed Dutch city.
The Unnoticed Art Festival balances on the line between public and private. It shows artworks hiding in normality. The language, used to express the works, fits in the average social behaviour in public space and, because of that, remained unnoticed to bystanders.

Creating the concepts and executing the works are split. Artists send their concepts more or less as manuals. In the festival the chosen works  will be carried out by a group of (both experienced and unexperienced) volunteers.

The volunteers have a double roll. They are participants as well as audience. They are responsible for realising the performances in the best possible way and, doing that, they fully experience the works. In fact they become part of it. The public is not excluded in this way but it is actually embedded.

The location of the festival remains a secret. That way the passers-by are accidental and without knowledge of the occasion. They are unaware.
They have their own aims, their own occupations, their own thoughts.

You are very welcome to send your concept to 2ndfestival@unnoticedart.com.
The deadline is 1st of April 2016. 

The first Unnoticed Art Festival in 2014 showed works of:
Rafael Abreu Canedo (BRA), Sarah Boulton (GBR), Derek Dadian-Smith (USA), Craig Damrauer (USA), Dino Dinco ((USA), Mr. and Mrs Gray (NLD), Linda Hesh (USA), Hiroomi Horiuchi (JPN), David Horvitz (USA), Daan den Houter (NLD), Jeroen Jongeleen (NLD), Ienke Kastelein (NLD), Jonathon Keats (USA), Joke van Kerkwijk (NLD), Kees Koomen (NLD), Margreet Kramer (NLD), Gavin Krastin (ZAF), Frans van Lent (NLD), Steef van Lent (DEU), Gretta Louw (AUS), Lilla Magyari (HUN), Maria Martens (SAV), Andrew McNiven (GBR), Janet Meaney (AUS), Tim Miller (GBR), Marnik Neven (BEL), Joyce Overheul (NLD), Nico Parlevliet (NLD), Malin Peter (SWE), Jess Rose (GBR), Julie Rozman (USA), Roekoe M (NLD), Joshua Schwebel (CAN), Edwin Stolk (NLD), Topp & Dubio (NLD).

TheParallelShow #5 at Art Rotterdam

Performers: Andrew McNiven, Daniela Degen, Ieke Trinks, Ienke Kastelein, Frans van Lent.

We met on February 11 at 11.00 in front of the main entrance of the Art Rotterdam Art Fair.
We entered the restaurant together for a cup of coffee and to discuss our approach to the event.

A year ago we already planned The Parallel Show at the Art Rotterdam Art Fair 2015.
Ieke Trinks, Ienke Kastelein, Peter Baren and I discussed the concept during a meeting in my studio some weeks before. At that time there was no intention of making it the start of a series, it was conceived as a unique occasion.
Because of personal circumstances this ParallelShow was finally cancelled. Some months later, in July 2015, it still took place at the Kunsthal in Rotterdam (#1).
Because of our positive experiences at this first occasion it became the start of a series of ParallelShows.

For that original Parallel Show in the art fair of 2015 we had a clear idea how to approach. We would all design a personal concept for one chosen gallery booth. In this gallery booth we would perform this work (without invitation or anouncement) in front of the group, as a practical instruction to all participants. After that we would all carry out each others works successively in the chosen gallery booths, thus creating a repetitive line of performances.

Of course this original concept was discussed again in this new occasion. The group was slightly different now. Peter was not joining us and Andrew and Daniela were now part of it.
Not all of us were convinced about the original framework so we first visited the shows individually before we decided how to proceed. We would meet again for lunch at 01.30.

At the lunch meeting, we concluded not to use the original framework. We all had our own clear ideas on what to do. We discussed the plans and decided what to perform, individually and together, and in what order. After lunch we returned to the show together.
Finally it turned out to be a mix of solo works and groupworks in a somewhat chaotic improvised setting, probably the clearest representation of the dynamics of this type of art show.
