P for Performance is pleased to announce a ninth performative event: Talkative Window for Collapsed Items (Proposal for a performance to happen in a former shop window, now ADA’s space), a performance by Roxane Borujerdi.
“In my live performance work, I usually make speeches out of a determined source of language and of already made expressions, which I transpose to another context. Often interacting with “do-it-yourself” props, my performances stage absurd challenges in everyday life spaces, and disrupt the course of events made foreseeable by the specific settings of an urban environment or a manufactured object.”
Roxane Borujerdi graduated from Beaux Arts de Paris in 2006. She is currently doing a residency at Stichting Duende in Rotterdam. With a partiality for mediums that allow mobility, as well the utmost immediacy between an idea and its visual realization, she is developing her practice through performances, drawings and videos. She intends to keep on exploring the contradictions of the common stereotype, using imagery that comes either from minimal art or popular visual culture. Since 2005 she exhibited in various galleries and institutions across Europe and made a year residency at The Hospital Club in London (2008-09). Up coming: solo show Galerie Lucile Corty (Paris).
P for Performance is part of an ongoing project by Maja Bekan, entitled Secret Powers for Identity, Security and Self-respect in Troubling Times. The aim of these performance events is to try to critically engage with the investigation of the artist’s role as a producer and advertiser.
