We are not things is a collection of thoughts and images put together following the the performance of Brush, a participatory art installation & performance for Bodyfront Belgrade, as part of Inspiring Change Artist residency showcase, Društveni centar NNK, Belgrade,…
Brush is a participatory art installation & performance that questions the influence external agents such as political entities, galleries, and private collectors, have on artists and their art.
By inviting participants to use the artist’s body to paint, the paintings created are directly influenced by external agents, and the artist is reduced to the inanimate – a performative instrument devoid of autonomy, utilized to achieve objectives of the other. The paintings were produced in-situ during the performance.
Materials used are acrylic paint on paper, body and time.
First performed at Bodyfront Belgrade, Inspiring Change Artist residency showcase, Društveni centar NNK, Belgrade, Serbia.
