PRESS PLAY: EMILY ROYSDON
Exhibition of videos of performances and films by artists who question the relationship between the performing body, architecture and the camera. Artistic projects based on the profound relationship between body-chamber or body-architecture, here focused on closed spaces. The choice will be made directly either from the BoCA archive, or via partnerships with other institutions. We have a partnership with BoCA x Tate Modern, in which Catherine Wood (Senior Performance Curator at Tate Modern) selected 3 performances designed exclusively for the “BMW Tate Live: Performance Room” series (2011-2015), a series of performances broadcast live and designed exclusively for cyberspace, commissioned by Tate. BoCA x Fundação Serralves Collection will also present Portuguese artists, namely Silvestre Pestana’s videos-poems-performances.
Every Thursday until at least the 30th of June 2020.
Here and on social networks @ BoCA Bienal we are announcing which videos and films will be shown, week by week.
4 JUN, 10pm (West): Emily Roysdon, performance “I am a helicopter, camera, queen” (2012)
Curator: Catherine Wood / Partnership Tate Modern
