Domains of Joyful Degradation
Performance set (20 min.)
Curated by Kolbeinn Hugi Höskuldsson (is) and Kling & Bang Gang
Reykjavik, Iceland, 2010
In summer 2010, 14 European galleries found their temporary home for a month in Reykjavík with the focus on this one particular place on the map. All the invited galleries created an international art district. Solo exhibitions or projects involving a few chosen artists were organized. A review of private European galleries - from Vilnius and Warsaw to London and Reykjavík - took place next to each other, creating a place of meeting and confrontation. Week of events - each day had a meticulously planned agenda. The Icelandic part of the entire undertaking was in the hands of Kling & Bang from Reykjavík.
The performance "Sorry honey !" by Monika Fryčová & Circus-clowns with Lee Nelson was based on music, physical movement, and pre-recorded voice which controlled the rhythm of the show. Main task was media distortion of performance art.
