No face that lets itself be looked at
by Fall 2015 Sponsored Artists Significant/Other

Please note: this event does not take place at High Concept Labs/Mana Contemporary Chicago.

Think about how your perspective changes from another vantage point.
Is it possible to simultaneously observe, express and experience?
What is the power relation between inactive and active people in a room?
What part of a performance are you making if you listen? If you participate?
What are you giving up if you agree to participate without knowing the outcome?
What are you gaining?
What is your relationship to you own body in a group of strangers?
Does your feeling of autonomy change if your main role in a given situation is listening?
Is the experience involved in creating art of equal importance to the final result?
Do you believe the artistic structure is as important as the art itself?
Is predetermined performative art disappointing or less successful if left completely unrehearsed?
Are the artists always the most responsible for creating a successful performative experience?
How would you define the bourgeois artistic experience?

ABOUT SIGNIFICANT OTHER

Trained and active in the world of contemporary western art-music, both vocalist/composer, Bethany Younge, and cellist/performance artist, Lia Kohl seek to expand their traditional artistic roles by means of dismantling the binary and hyper-masculinized cycle of composer>score>performer into a process that is both more organic and specifically human. Kohl and Younge’s vision is an autobiographical one, where their artwork directly reflects the two’s relationship and where their self-referential performance represents their process. Both women are fascinated by the function and integration of the audience, the avowal of bodies, and the sound-worlds that emanate from pedestrian objects and their instruments. Learn more >
