We are happy to announce that a Lilith Commission from 2017 – YOU ARE INVITED – Orient Express Yourself  by Dafna Maimon is opening tonight in its last and the 4th chapter
at Kim? Contemporary Art Centre in Riga with the title “FAMILY BUSINESS: POWER FAILURE” 

“FAMILY BUSINESS: POWER FAILURE” is the last part in a series of exhibitions and performances inspired by autobiographical and micro historical research into a family-owned business – Finland’s first kebab and falafel restaurant “Orient Express”, opened by the artist’s Israeli father in 1985. Located in the “Forum” shopping mall in Helsinki city centre, the restaurant introduced Finns to the delicacies of the Middle East.

Some years ago, Maimon found a rather strange high-budget video ad from 1986 that her father had produced, which used his own exoticness in a high-paced narrative to market kebabs in Finland.Starting from this video-relic and her childhood memories, the artist has now reworked the commercial and reimagined the restaurant.

Today, Orient Express exists in a world beyond capital. The restaurant was first reconstructed in Lilith Performance Studio as the performance Orient Express Yourself,
where it was equipped with a functioning kitchen, complete with trained “restaurant workers” whose task was to sell falafel in exchange for the audience’s own words.
The customers paid prices ranging from 15 to 299 words, and answered questions relating to memories of family and gender roles, as well as the effects of destructive patriarchal structures. Their amplified recollections enabled a semi-shared and intimate space between strangers.

A few months later, Orient Express expanded its operations to Galerie Wedding, where the installation functioned as a ghostly memory of the long-gone restaurant.
There it sold falafels to the audience only on the opening, where the word-payment was recorded into an old tape recorder.
For the finnissage the restaurant catered to people again with the performance After Hours.
Maimon scripted an absurd movement score based on restaurant chores a worker performs when closing up for the night.
One chore was to count the takings; the words collected at the opening were played back within the performance as further fragmented memories to a new audience.

Its third stop was in Finland at SIC Space, 33 years after its initial opening, as the exhibition Family Business. The mutation of the restaurant served falafel cooked and sold by the artist’s actual family members – her siblings.

Now it has come the the last stop and the restaurant will branch out to Kim? Contemporary Art Center in Riga, where it will open on the 20 April in yet a new mutation as a performative space where collected local memories have been transformed into a script. The idea of a family business could be an overarching way to describe the artist’s work; she creates temporary small-scale communities that challenge stereotypical constructions. Through these communities, Maimon studies the very same elements her work materializes through; affect based constructions and their economies.

We are so happy to announce that a Lilith Commission from 2017 – YOU ARE INVITED – Orient Express Yourself by Dafna Maimon is living on in new shapes and will open tomorrow with the title
“FAMILY BUSINESS” at SIC artists’ space in Helsinki, Finland.

“Family Business” is the third in a series of exhibitions and performances inspired by autobiographical and micro historical research into a family-owned business – Finland’s first kebab and falafel restaurant “Orient Express”, opened by the artist’s Israeli father in 1985. Located in the “Forum” shopping mall in Helsinki city centre, the restaurant introduced Finns to the delicacies of the Middle East.

Lilith Commission – Transaction of Hollows by Melati Suryodarmo is listed as NR 4 – not to miss during Singapore Art Week in Art Radar.

The performance will be shown at ShanghArt Singapore January 25 -26.

Art Radar brings you 7 highlights not to miss during Singapore Art Week 2018.Singapore Art Week 2018 runs from 17 to 28 January, concurrently with Art Stage Singapore, and presents a rich programme of events across the city.

 

Happy to announce that a Lilith Commission from 2016 – Transaction of Hollows by the Indonesian artist Melati Suryodarmo will be shown at ShanghArt Singapore next week!


Take the chance to see and experience if you are in the hoods of Singapore.
http://www.shanghartsingapore.com/gallerysg/exhibition.htm…

The live performance, titled “Transaction of Hollows”, is a long durational performance piece that investigates mankind’s desire on love and war.
Melati evokes her desolation at the state of politics and society as she negotiates the nuances of such emotions through these circumstances by repetitively shooting hundreds of arrows without a specific target.
The audience is invited to be present in the same space while she shoots arrows across the room, allowing them to be immersed and drawn in, connecting with the artist and the atmosphere in their own unique way.
At the end of the performance, the venue, left untouched, will form an exhibition on its own.
This provides viewers an experience in a different circumstance from the live performance, much akin to witnessing of the aftermath of a war after its conclusion.

Transaction of Hollows was commissioned by and performed first time at Lilith Performance Studio, Malmo in 2016.

Fint skrivet om YOU ARE INVITED – Baby Shower for Mary av Clemens Altgård i Skånska Dagbladet i dag.
” Performancekonst kan vara otäck och oroande, men den kan också vara riktigt trevlig som denna kväll, om än inte utan spänningsmoment. En värdig avslutning på årets jubileumsaktiviteter.”

http://www.skd.se/2017/12/15/rituellt-och-lekfullt-nar-jubileum-avslutades/

Very beautiful art review written by Clemens Altgård in today’s newspaper Skånska Dagbladet of, our last performance dinner by fab The Icelandic Love Corporation YOU ARE INVITED – Baby Shower for Mary

“Performance Art can be nasty and disturbing, but it can also be really nice like this evening, though not without tension torque. A worthy end to this year’s anniversary activities.”

Väldigt fin skrivet också av Anders E Larsson i Kristianstadsbladet:

” ILC:s uttryck hittas någonstans i skärningspunkten mellan (ett spelat) gravallvar och humorn som lurar i nästa andetag – kepsarna med en pärla längst fram på skärmkanten, som vi tar på oss för att hitta ”our inner pearl”, är ett exempel; detta paras med en samtidskommenterande attityd och en road nyfikenhet på hur vi som besökare hanterar de instruktioner vi får. Madamernas mjuka handlag och isländskt spirituella/ironiska mantran gör oss beredvilliga: ”The beginning and the end, the love and the drops, your rain of gold” – och så sprejas det polkagris(?)doftande vätska över våra huvuden.”

http://www.kristianstadsbladet.se/kultur/lilith-performance-studio-malmo-baby-shower-for-mary/

Also very well written art review by Anders E Larsson in in Kristianstadsbladet today:

“The ILC’s expression is found somewhere at in intersection (an acted) grave seriousness and humor lurking in the next breath – the caps with a pearl at the front of the cap edge, which we put on to find” our inner pearl”, is one example; this is paired with a contemporary commentary attitude and an amused curiosity about how we as visitors handles the instruction we receive. Madame soft touch and Icelandic spiritual / ironic mantras makes us entreated: “the beginning and the end, the love and the drops, your rain of gold “- and then a fragrance of mint scented liquid is sprayed over our heads.”

Sydsvenskan recension skriven av Christine Antaya: https://www.sydsvenskan.se/2017-12-16/en-trivsel-av-det-radikala-slaget

” Att sätta hushållsarbete eller det vardagliga i centrum är en inarbetad feministisk strategi inom konsten, men här görs det inte främst för att uppmärksamma värdesystem, utan för att betona idén om omsorg och det kollektiva. Performancekonst spelar mycket på publikens förväntningar och okunskap, vilket ofta bidrar till en spänning i rummet. Detta verks små gester av tacksamhet och respekt – vi får våra händer tvättade, görs delaktiga och uppmuntras – bidrar istället till en avväpnande trivsel. Det kan låta trivialt, men när vi står där och sjunger, en mörk decemberkväll 2017, välkomnar jag denna trivsel och uppfattar den som radikal.”

 

“To put household or everyday work in the center is an incorporated feminist strategy in the art, but this is not primarily aimed at paying attention to value systems, but to emphasize the idea of care and the collective. Performance art plays a lot about the audience’s expectations and ignorance, which often contributes to the excitement of the room, which makes little gestures of gratitude and respect – we get our hands washed, participated and encouraged – instead contributes to a disgusting well-being. It may sound trivial, but when we stand there and sing, a dark December evening 2017, I welcome this well-being and perceive it as radical. “
