Collective Attention: Anarchic Action


@ 47/49 Tanner Street

Art, Upcoming

Residency followed by a public sharing

Collective Attention: Anarchic Action is a gathering of 8 action-based performance artists. It is a culmination. A coming together. & a test of boundaries. Through weekly co-learning sessions the artists will share methodologies and strategies. It is a non-hierarchical environment where each artist can both teach and learn. The project seeks to explore what it means to perform together, now?

The ensemble collective includes: Benjamin Ivy, Jess Heritage, Vivian Chinasa Ezugha, Jasper Llewellyn, Monstera Deliciosa, selina bonelli and is activated by Eleanor Dalzell Jenyns and kate stonestreet. These 8 artists will trace the confines between their solo practices. Practices will converge and influences will collide. Threads will be drawn out and knotted together to form ensemble work... 

In the warehouse space of Ugly Duck’s Garage, pockets of action will emerge, converge and dissipate. Over 4 hours, 8 artists will perform simultaneously. Each artists’ attention will wax and wane. There may be surges of activity; or images that evolve slowly. There will be moments of excitement and time for reflection. We will be together; acting alone.
