BERLIN — GERMANY
L’Atelier-ksr is a gallery and project space founded in Berlin in 2011 by director Stefania Angelini. At once a gallery and a platform, L’Atelier-ksr represents international artists through solo shows and art fairs, while inviting guest curators twice a year. L’Atelier-ksr supports the creation of ongoing works in experimental formats. The space en- courages publications and editions.
For this upcoming edition Pareidolie 2016, we would like to investigate performance art in relation to its produc- tion of presence, relating to the nature of a gesture process. If the traces of a performance could be inscribed as a historical continuum of the performance itself, the project aims to focus on the ontology of this ‘immaterial labour’, where performance does not end with the experience in front of an audience. It rather constitutes an art form through the production of independant pieces and their subsequent mediatization.
