ABOUT MARITA BULLMANN
Marita Bullmann lives and works in Essen, Germany. Her work has been shown throughout Europe, South America and Asia. She is a co-founder of PAErsche, an action laboratory that focuses on encounter and networking as a gift and cooperation. Since 2013 she has been the organizer of the performance art platform INTERVAL.
Marita Bullmann: “My works are engagements with everyday objects: familiar materials, actions, spaces and places. I am seeking a direct encounter between body and space. My working method can be understood as a temporally ephemeral, site- and situation-specific process.”
ABOUT LIINA KUITTINEN
Liina Kuittinen is an artist with background in fine arts, working mainly in the field of performance art. Her work has been shown in the context of festivals and events in Europe and Scandinavia, in galleries and on instagram.
Liina Kuittinen: “Digestion is process that involves the body with other processes, one point in the circle of matter. Performance operates on the same plain with digestion. Performance and process of digesting are equally real. They are meeting points for material flows, actual events transforming material into other.”
ABOUT IGNACIO PÉREZ PÉREZ
Ignacio Pérez Pérez is a performance artist, photographer and occasional writer. He has been making performances since 2002, and his work has been presented in the streets and museums, in festivals and as solo exhibition in Denmark, Finland, Germany, Italy, Poland, Uruguay and Venezuela. Currently, he lives and works in Helsinki.
Ignacio Pérez Pérez: “We are together in this. Now or never. Now or never. Now or never. I creates experiences of ritualistic playfulness and worldly contemplation to observe and encounter otherness and its permanent state of transformation in the realm of everyday life.”
Please join us on Saturday, September 21 at 1:00pm at TMAC for artist talks by Marita Bullman and Ignacio Pérez Pérez.
The presentation of new performance works by Marita Bullman, Liina Kuittinen and Ignacio Pérez Pérez at FADO is made possible through a collaboration with VIVA! Art Action, one of FADO’s enduring partners. FADO and VIVA! have partnered several times over the years to share the presentation of international artists to both platforms in order to bring exceptional artists and their work to audiences in both cities; in addition to giving visiting artists the unique opportunity of engaging with performance communities in both Toronto and Montréal.
