PAErsche meets… Alice de Visscher and Greig Burgoyne | 21.2.2020 | Rottstr5 Kunsthallen, Bochum Germany
invites you to the Rottstr.5 Kunsthallen in Bochum, Germany.
is a format that presents Solo-Performances from national and international artists that will come or travel through Germany.
For this edition we are please to host and present:
Alice de Visscher from Brussels, Belgium
Greig Burgoyne from Hastings, UK.
Alice de Visscher is interested in the image of her body, the structure of the space, the properties of the material. By putting those three elements into a relationship, she is looking for unusual, somewhat minimal actions which stimulate the interpretation of the audience. She follows her intuitions, in the belief that they will translate her way to live in this world nowadays.
Also she trusts her body, intuition and improvisation more than mental reflexion and widens on this way the given perceptions of the body and its surrounding.
was born in 1979 and currently lives and works in Brussels. She studied
theatre (graduating in 2004) and did some visual and experimental
theatre in Belgium. Her artwork has been mainly focused on performance
and video since 2006, then also on drawing and installation with paper
(since 2014). It has been presented in Europe, Singapore, Thailand,
Korea, Israel, USA and Canada.
Greig Burgoyne unites materials often sourced in and around the proximity of the site each project takes place within, alongside process-led, rule based strategies.
Theoretical frameworks specific to phenomenology, literary structures around the fragment, and dilemmas about space found in modern Russian fiction also inform that evolution. He immerses in concepts of play and the speculative, that are ultimately driven by curiosity and risk, that often conclude with a de/materiality of the precarious, akin to the pathetic. Residual scraps of that forming/unforming.
Taking the anomalies of the space, he seeks to test, measure or expand the paradoxes of body/site relations with regard to space and our experience in it, of it and alongside it.
The results are immersive, often absurd and beguiling re-navigations or configurations specific to the site and /or subject.
Burgoyne proposes new dialogues that seek to generate a condition of becoming, translation and flux instead of stasis; a site of experience rather than merely location.
Greig was born in Glasgow Scotland, studied at Academy of Fine Arts Vienna Austria and MA Royal College of Art London UK.
is a collaboration with adhoc art space and supported by the Rottstr.5 Kunsthallen and INTERVAL in cooperation with PAErsche.
