tingmȧling. 13' HDV 2018. Exploring the relation between rural culture, folk, myth and
landscape the film is inspired by the Draumkvedet, the medieval dream song and by a
poem from Jens Bjørneboe, ‘Om Ungdommens råskap' ('Samlede Skuespill’ PAX
FORLAG, Oslo, 2006) to reflect on the beauty and violence of nature and technology.

 

 

Om Ungdommens råskap / On the Brutal Ways of Youth. 5’11” VR 360 Video 2018. Norway.

During our Residency in Leveld Kunstnartun, Norway we were struck by the tranquility of the
landscape and the brutality of modernity. Spending time in Jens Bjørneboe's Loflet recording
audio and filming in 360 degree virtual reality video we made this short 5' film exploring the
viewpoints of objects inside his cabin looking back at the absent writer.'Om Ungdommens
råskap' by Jens Bjørneboe written in 1965. Published in ‘Samlede Skuespill’ by
PAX FORLAG, OSLO 2006. English translation Joe Martin.

21-22.12.20 mmmmm - Can You Hear Me? Festival of Performance, National School of
Drama, Bengaluru, India. A performance work with Srishti University of Art and Design in
reference to contemporary Indian
political issues and Girish Kanard's Tale-Danda

(Headless), lighting by Ravi M Anavarana.


Inspired by Girish Karnad's play Tale-Danda, 'Can you hear me?' is a performance work
exploring ideas of the collective body and the individual through movement, objects and
sound. The performers
form a living painting, using space as a canvas and their bodies
as multiple structures, coming together
and splitting apart, constantly reorganising in
movements layered with voice and sound, reminiscent of
symbolism in myth and mythology.

Drawing on ritual and contemporary issues the performance explores
the social structures
and prejudices discussed in Tale-Danda through fluidity and metamorphosis.

Direction & Sound: Adrian Fisher and Luna Montenegro
Lighting: Ravi M Anavarana.

and to consider a variety of new, outward-looking and often risky proposals of what a Spanish-language

Caribbean literature might constitute. Possibilities relating to concerns with otherness, orality, memory

and marooning abound'. Jèssica Pujol - ALBA

UK 2012. English. 6th ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival, Babylon cinema,

Rosa-Luxemburg-Str. 30, 10178 Berlin, Germany (with support from The British Council).


The film explores the presence and absence of the body in relation to contemporary film and
popular media cultures.
The body is subjected to a criminal investigation in which the global
concerns of the economy are placed on the individual.
The relation between narrative, text
and visual imagery is revealed through a portrait of contemporary suburban lifestyle.

The global crisis acts as the 'perfect crime' - everyone is guilty. The film examines how

complicit the individual is in the
global perfect crime, a crime in which we are all suspects
searching for a witness, an other. The film was made through
a site-specific collaborative
process in which the three artists erase the idea of the author to create a fictional subjectivity

both in writing and film.

02.06.12 - 02.10.12 Staircase descending a Nude. The Lookout Gallery, Aldeburgh Art 2012.

The work explores Duchamp's 'Nude descending a staircase' a 100 years after its conception.
It embodies the staircase on a nude,it transforms Duchamp's image into a living participative
sculpture. The participative installation investigates the movement of people filmed descending
the Aldeburgh Beach Lookout staircase. Passers-by were invited to be active subjects in the
filming of the project. A high definition video image is created overlapping 30 film layers to
reflect on ideas of time and movement. The film is then projected inside the Lookout Gallery.
The public are encouraged to sing a harmonic sound that is amplified in the space to be part
of a ritual that makes them the art work as a moving bodily canvas for the projection. The
ideas of science and technology that informed Duchamp's original analogue painting
concept are explored through a digital contemporary form (video projection). The clothed
movement of people descending a staircase is projected on a 'Nude torso'. Duchamp's
painting in 1912 explored the mechanics of movement and its reframing in painting. '...
we have two parallel movements which correspond to one another.' Duchamp. In our
installation we deform the staircase through the bodily projection. We take the subject
of Duchamp's painting, the Nude and use it as a living canvas. Abstracted from the
figure in Duchamp's painting, the figure returns with a real presence. Projection and
breath together create a living presence for the descent of the staircase. The Public
become the work in the Installation. They are transformed into a skin canvas for the
descent of the staircase. Their bodies take the work from the outside to the inside
of the body. The figures descending the staircase appear to enter the navel of the
person being projected on. The staircase descends the naked chest. The work
becomes a mirror, it inverses Duchamp's idea.

cartographic sculpture, a map of the temporary community that daily inhabit
'Plaza de Armas'

Estacion Mapocho - a former
train station designed by 'Eiffel'. The work can now be seen in Galeria AFA, Santiago, Chile.

‘Cero Trazos’ es un retrato urbano, una instalación, el resultado de un proceso performático e
interactivo, que recoge
un trazo digital de los transeúntes del centro de Santiago, es una
escultura cartográfica, un mapa de la comunidad
temporal que diariamente habita la Plaza de
Armas. ‘Cero Trazos’ es un evento satélite que rescata el espacio público como un espacio

29.04.11 L'after économie (video 16' & installation). Plankton Bar #40 Bondgenotenstraat 54 rue des Allies,
1190 Brussels
- group show



Premiere of our new film made during the two month Bains Connective residency. The work
process was called 'locating the mouth of the collective body' investigating ideas of time,
community as a 'body' and the mouth as a point of entry into the community. We developed
these ideas working with different age groups, exploring language/non-language possibilities,
the mouth and its tracing in alginate, plaster and sound. This project was filmed in the Berlioz
Senoirs Club, Vorst, and in Ixelles, Brussels. Made in collaboration with Gines Olivares.
Thanks to Bains Connective,

10.03.11 Sarma Salon #2: Time is on my side. Les Bains Connective (Bondgenotenstraat
54 rue des Alliés,
1190 Brussels)

How do artists work today? How do they speak about their method? How can one make a
start with documenting,
discussing
and sharing the hybrid and heterogeneous practices that underpin the performing arts today? How can
the informal and embodied
discourses, as well as the implicit knowledge they carry, find a wider recognition and
accessibility?
A series of monthly salons, organized by Sarma in different locations in Brussels, create a live
research environment for
makers and researchers to address issues of new artistic practices and discourses.
Amongst the other artists presentations we showed a sound work in progress - 'time'
by Adrian Fisher & Luna
Montenegro.

'monuments to memory games' is an exhibition that examines ideas of 'play' in relation to memory

and history through installation, video and live performance. The process of play is central to

mmmmm's work. Through play they are engaged with issues of what is performance? What is the

spectacle in performance? What evokes memory? How can histories be reconstructed in the

documentation of performance. How through engaging in play can the experience of memory and

history be made more risky, more present. collaboration with Gines Olivares and Felipe Luck.

04.06.10 - 06.09.10 La possibilité de révolution - solo exhibition

La Cité des Insectes - Chaud 87120 NEDDE, Limoges, France.

Site-specific installation exploring the possibility of revolution.
The artists work under a 'Tree of Liberty' planted around 1789 as a symbol of the French Revolution,

making a one to one encounter with the museum visitors and workers. They take a mould of a

person's finger, a trace of an intimate moment with a stranger.

They use the former communal Village bread oven as an exhibition space, installing the plaster

casts of people's fingers; organising them in clear structures, organic piles, groups and individual

units.

The installation reflects on and proposes a challenge to the way in which museums are structured

and present objects. There are three traditional museum display cabinets placed in the space, the

plaster fingers are inside and outside of them; in the former oven, in a bird's nest in the stone wall.

The installation contains different situations of the plaster cast fingers using some of the technical

equipment of science and museums such as a light box, a slide carousel, an inspection lens.

12.07.09 - 2.08.09 Residency in Rifrazioni Festival, Anzio, Italy

'The Festival, known as Rifrazioni, was born in 2006 as an international Summer Festival of Performance, Visual Arts and Music
occurring
every year in the historically relevant sites of Anzio and Nettuno. Both the towns overlook the sea of the southern coast
of Lazio,
50 Km south of Rome. Rifrazioni can be regarded as a contemporary art project, which recuperates the local
archaeological heritage,
re-defining its identity. The Festival aims to diversify the cultural supply of the territory relying on
interdisciplinarity and contamination between
artistic languages and cultures; it endeavours to establish a free zone for the
merging of disciplines, genres and codes.
Rifrazioni is a SITE-SPECIFIC Festival. The works of art presented within the
Festival are strongly informed by the territory that inspires and moulds them with its historical and socio-
cultural specificity.
Therefore Rifrazioni shifts into the territory elaborating and re-interpreting the local identity through the sight of the invited
artists.'

of the show. The Obsidian Mirror was used by the Aztecs to foresee the coming of magic and healing. It was then taken by

the colonisers, led by Hernán Cortés, before being passed to Jon Dee. It is now installed in The British Museum,

London Art Fair, Art Projects Space, with '3D Galleria' (Piazzale Candiani 31, Venice, Italy) Jan.14th to 18th, 2009.

Business Design Centre, London N1. Aurora was inspired by the illuminated 15th centuary alchemical manuscript: 'Aurora Consurgens'.

A man attempts to suck milk from a woman's breast. There is no milk. The possibility of feeding, of nourishment is stopped.

The continuity of life becomes a still point, a still life. It represents the end of capitalism, the end of the flows of money (liquidity).

The man is left sucking, attempting to continue the actions that brought the flow of capital, but the breasts are empty. The action remains as a

ritual, a meditation on what is missing. We also showed a new framed photographic work made in collaboration with photographer Ignacio Acosta.

In a corner of a room an elephant turns on a metaphorical 'wheel of consumption'. A man eats a battered fish (commonly

found all over the UK in 'fish and chip' shops). A woman wearing a mask  made out of newspaper and potato chips

appears to scream silently.

Kaisiya is inspired by Anne Chapman’s interviews with Lola Kiepja, the last surviving female shaman of the Selk'nam

people in Tierra del Fuego.  In the original ritual the shaman would chant for three or four days to bring food in the form

of a dead whale to the beach.  This allowed the main ritual of The Hain to commence. Produced in collaboration

with Gines Olivares and Felipe Luck.

23.09.07 'a brief history of elephant' (20mins)

Pullens Centre, Elephant and Castle, London.

The name 'Elephant and Castle' probably derives from the emblem on the Cutlers' Company, a guild founded in the 13th

century to represent workers who made knives, scissors and surgical instruments. The handles of these instruments

often used Indian elephant ivory, hence the 'Elephant' image. The 'Castle' represents the 'howdah' a seat placed on the

back of the elephant traditionally used by the hunters.

In 1641, a constant stream of horse-drawn vehicles led to a blacksmith, John Flaxman, setting up a forge on an island

site between the main roads. Around 1760, the metal workers premises became an 'inn' and was renamed the 'Elephant and Castle.'

14.08.04  Art of War (16mins)

Rockhouse Gallery, Isle of Sheppey, UK. "Insula Ovinium" - Art & Performance event organized by Nicole Mollett

Review by David Medalla, Performance artist.

mmmmm (consisting of Chilean poet Luna Montenegro and English artist Adrian Fisher) performed a dramatic piece

entitled "Art of War" the grass-grown ampitheatre in front of the Rockhouse a couple of metres from the sea. Adrian,

dressed in the military uniform of a tin-pot dictator, heavily laden with spurious medals, strutted in exaggerated goose-steps,

with one hand up raised in the Heil Hitler salute, around the statuesque figure of Luna wrapped entirely, at the start of the

performance, in a silken chatreuse-red cloth. Gradually Adrian (the Dictator) unravelled the cloth, on which he laid supine

facing the figure of Luna dressed in a bright green see-through netting dress, surmounted by a green structure on her head.

Luna, like a goddess of the jungle, gradually advanced towards the figure of the dictator, and (to the surprise of the spectators

who watched the performance in silence) Luna pissed on the chest of the supine Dictator. "I grew up in Chile at the time of the

dictator Pinochet," said Luna Montenegro afterwards, "and I will piss any time on any dictator anywhere".
