Performance: May 3 – June 16, 2013
Installation: June 17- August 18, 2013
Duration: 6 hours a day, Wed-Sun
Lilith Performance Studio presents two six weeks long interactive performances by the artists Donna Huanca and Yingmei Duan at Malmo Konsthall in the exhibition – 24 SPACES – a cacophony.
Raw Material is a 6-week long performance where Donna Huanca (b.1980, US) creates an installation by collaborating with the Malmo Konsthall audience.
During six weeks Huanca is working inside a glass vitrine and is exposed to the audience’s gaze through a double-sided mirror- they can see her- but all she see is her own reflection. The audience is invited to enter the space for 10 minutes at a time, where by entering, they agree to become an object, model or conversation partner, essentially a collaborator.
All visitors at the Malmo Konsthall are asked to leave materials through a drop-box to be used in the overall installation – whatever people leave in the drop-box will become part of the piece.
Inspired by the staging of the sterile zoo of Berlin, this installation is lit with 48 florescent lights inside a 24 square meter space- creating a blinding light therapy, typical in this part of the world. After Huancas departure on June 17th the final installation created will be open to the public until August 18th, 2013.
Raw Material is produced by Lilith Performance Studio for the exhibition 24- SPACES at Malmo Konsthall.
