"FLUID BOUNDARIES" (2019)

A meditative performance starting with stillness immersed in the sea, holding a broken stone and gazing towards the unknown and moved by the gentle waves as my feet search-out roots unders the sand. A collective procession follows where with each step Formentera's landscape is reconfigured and maps are (re)traced. Itineraries dissappear as new ones are formed around the Torre des Pi des Català. In the shadow of the tower, brief rituals take place.

in collaboration with Antigoni Tsagkaropoulou

What could you find out if you sleep in Fluffy and cuddle with the pink little horse for 7 days? What secrets will Fluffy share with you and what kind of stories pop-up from the library and become reality during the night? And when you ask for bedtime stories, will you hear the voice of Fluffy itself·before you fall asleep?
Every day they discover more and more : during the nights, hairy deviances dance and masculine fairies whisper fairytales.

On Friday 25 January from 8:00 p.m. we invite you into a performative audiovisual get-together, with video by CUNTCINEMA and new fuzzy friends of Fluffy. CUNTCINEMA is the continuation of VULVOgraphy, the creation of a portable tiny cinema, which aims to display movies about identity, gender, body, shame and crisis.

'Identificazioni', an exhibition presented at the Ospizio Giovani Artisti only a few months ago, was dedicated to the search for multiple female identities. In a moment so historically crucial in the relationship man-woman, and hoping for a further progressive achievement of balance in rights, the OGA now proposes a series of works by eight international artists in which women reflect introspectively and with various 'modalities'.

[CORPOFESTO #2] - WE ALL BLEED THE S(H)AME

1. Internationales Performance Festival Weimar

For the occasion of Kaffee Kuchen Action Art III - Holding Space 1st International Performance Art Festival Weimar, the second CORPOFESTO has been emerged.

CORPOFESTO #2 “WE ALL BLEED THE S(H)AME” is a body of work focused on the notion of embodied shame and acts which externalise and neutralise it through rituals of removal.

The work is materialised through performance for camera and the creation of a series of prints, manipulated through manual intervention.

The seat of this work rests in the very sharing and diluting of our fears, and the juxtaposition of still and moving image aims to reinforce the message that the attempt might fail and the traces of shame remain, but the act of sharing, as simple and as difficult as it may be, can be the first step in a journey to ultimately free ourselves from that which is for the most part to the external eye : invisible.

What beauty feels like

REVIEW by FREEFLOWINGVISUALS

ART RESIDENCY AT F-L-A-T 5

For her Sofa Residency at F-L-A-T-5, artist Fenia Kotsopoulou will blend acts of courage and acts of removal, creating the ground for investigating body and shame. The residency will be an opportunity to experimentally explore issues around body-hair and other societally-unwanted features of our physical experience – those which give rise to feelings of shame.

Which are the roots of our shame and what does it take to eradicate them?

If shame was another tangible ‘body’, what form, colour and shape would it have? How would it sound, speak, or look like?

Telepresence: An experimental performance for (live) camera

Movimiento en Movimiento

"Telepresence: An experimental performance for (live) camera”, is an experimental live performance via Skype by Fenia Kotsopoulou and Daz Disley, selected for the 2017 edition of Movimiento en Movimiento, in Mexico.

Rooted in Kotsopoulou & Disley's first collaborations exploring absence, presence, and glitched mediation, 'Telepresence' takes a spontaneous live-approach to their previously editing-based techniques exploring the choreographies of fragmentation.  This experiment, delivered as a quartet, explores notions of fragmentation and presence as mediated through video-chat, with additional and deliberate glitched interventions designed after some of the underlying errors that occur in video encoding, distribution, and reproduction.  What does it mean to be present at distance ? How do we chose when and what to encode, to decode, to discard, and to classify as redundant ? ... and how does this constellation of psycho/techno perspectives impact on close-quarters dance performance ?
