Performance Telling was a work-in-progress sharing of LIFT’s digital residency with Swiss artists Igor Cardellini & Tomas Gonzalez in partnership with Pro-Helvetia’s Swiss Selection Edinburgh: Virtual residencies.
For the residency, Cardellini/Gonzalez invited “Colectivo”
utópico, an international group they formed with the artists Rita Aquino (Salvador), Rébecca Balestra (Geneva), Paula Baró (Buenos Aires), Felipe de Assis (Salvador) and Marina Quesada (Buenos Aires) and special participation by UK artist Ira Brand. Together, they conceived Performance Telling, a project in which they shared/recycled existing pieces through their respective prisms. They proposed a work composed of four variations inspired by End meeting for all by Forced Entertainment. In doing so, they questioned togetherness and parasitism.
LIFT was pleased to partner with Pro Helvetia to host this residency and work-in-progress and deepen connections between UK, Swiss and international artists.
