Similitude, Punta della Dogana, Venice, October 13 and 14, 2018,
performance sessions at 11 am, 1 pm, 3 pm, and 5 pm each day
This live piece is especially created for the situation in one space of the Punta della Dogana. Processual in its character Prinz Gholam’s work is an ongoing strive to re-activate, re-locate and negotiate the self and the body between its pictorial and cultural construct and the world we live in now. The gestures/poses and intervals of movement are the structure and path they follow in performing. Through placement and timing the internalized choreography (score) of images is played out by the artists on the site of the performance. They tend to see their live pieces as the construction of an environment in which selected references are placed in another „usage“.
Clothing is conceived and realized by Katarzyna Bura/WF after drawings of Prinz Gholam.
