As part of an artist residency in Amsterdam to further develop their new work commission, If I Can’t Dance it pleased to support FLAM - Forum for Live Art Amsterdam to present keyon gaskin’s performance:
this is an artwork.
this is for you.
you are a community.
you are my material.
this is a prison.
leave when you want.
Of gaskin’s work it has been written:
"gaskin’s work is less about a whole picture –– a total or totalizing knowledge –– than it is about intimacy, failure to see, nearness that obstructs rather than clarifies, complicates… an expression of that nearness, an interrogation of modalities that insist on clear pictures, on accounts of what was missed. Instead, this work unsettles, undoes, asks what it means, looks like, feels like, to come undone, to see only fragments, to have little or no context."
–– Litia Perta, art&education
The performance will be presented as part of a nightlong programme of performances, discussions and a party, commencing at 6pm and finishing late, at Arti et Amicitiae (Rokin 112, 1012 LB). Further details can be found on the FLAM - Forum for Live Art Amsterdam website here.
The programme of If I Can’t Dance is financially supported by the Mondriaan Fund, the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, the AFK (Amsterdam Fund for the Arts), and Ammodo. The presentation of this is a performance. / you are a community. / you are my material. / this is a prison. / leave when you want.
is made possible with the support of FLAM - Forum for Live Art Amsterdam.
