HANGAR Centro de Investigação Artística
April 1 – June 30, 2019

Rua Damasceno Monteiro, 12
1170-112 Lisboa, Portugal

HANGAR is an Artistic Research Center located in Graça, Lisbon. HANGAR includes a center of exhibitions, artistic residencies, and artistic studies. It is also a center of education, talks, and conversations that unify geographic locations, cultures and identities and stimulate the development of artistic and theoretical practices.
HANGAR also seeks to organize and produce the development of artistic inter-disciplinary projects and visual arts projects that focus on Lisbon as a central backdrop for contemporary culture.
HANGAR is an independent space managed by artists and curators. It is a place for experimentation, research, and reflection artistic practices. This space is a point of convergence of various areas of contemporary artistic processes.

From April 1st to June 30, 2019, I will be working as a residence-artist in a Hangar studio in Lisbon, Portugal.

Open Performance Academy | Art Science Hunger
Worm-Ubik Rotterdam



Open Performance Academy (OPA) is a knowledge and practice platform for artists and theoreticians working with and from performance. OPA offers a platform for research, experiment and reflection. Artists and theorists are given the opportunity to show work in progress and to receive feedback from the audience. Conversely, the audience gets an insight into state of the art research within and to performance art. By focusing on both the artist and theoretician and the audience, OPA contributes to the development within art and the transfer of art and knowledge.

My presentations will take place on November 8 and November 22, 2018.
Performance: December 7, 2018.

A Scene #12

On Saturday October 13, 2018 I walked on the Bergweg, Rotterdam (on the right site) in the direction of the Gordelweg, carrying a plastic bag with oranges. At exactly 14:20 CEST, I passed the corner of the Zaagmolenstraat (51°56’08.6″N, 4°28’35.2″E), in front of Bergweg 184 A, and at that exact moment the bag teared open and the oranges spread over the pavement. I then gathered the oranges, put them in another plastic bag and walked on in the same direction.
(this scene was a repetition of A Scene #1 of October 11, 2014).

Record

In my hands I hold two camcorders.
I set both cameras to record. I hand one camera to a person (A). I ask him to film me, while following me.
I walk to a second person (B), hand him the second camera and again ask him to film me, while following me.
I turn to person A, ask the camera back and then hand it to another person (C) while giving her the same instruction. I walk to person B, ask back the camera and hand it to another person (D) while giving him the same instruction.
This process of swapping, walking and filming goes on for about 15 minutes.

I then take both cameras and set them to playback.
I position the cameras on a table, next to each other.

Two Walks in the Same Direction

On Wednesday, August 22, 2018, at 2 pm (CEST), Elia Torrecilla and Frans van Lent started walking in north-westerly direction. Elia Torrecilla walked in the area of Altea, Spain (38°36’19.7″N 0°02’28.3″W) and Frans van Lent walked in the area of the Biesbosch, the Netherlands (51°48’34.8″N 4°46’38.0″E). Alternately they sent each other photos of their locations and by doing so they turned these two separate walks into one common experience.

The walks lasted about 1 hour and 24 photos were sent.
