Artemisa Clark

This video documents a performance in which I crawl from the hostel I stayed in during my time at the Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts to the Hohensalzburg Fortress, where the classes and final show were held. > It’s wasn’t me, I swear.

Millie Brown

LiveStudio saw the marriage of music and performance art in the form of Nexus Vomitus, a collaboration between vomiting artist Millie Brown and opera singers Patricia Hammond and Zita Syme. During the one-off performance piece, Millie created a rainbow-like spectrum of vomit on canvas to Patricia and Zita’s melodic interlude.

Ahmet Ogut

Mission Calls (2008-2009) is a work composed by three large drawings that appear as a short storyboard of a performative act that anyone could do. The sequence shows a common street dog transforming into a rescue-dog and it is the artist, with a seemingly absurd and surreal gesture, that grants the unsuspecting dog this role of power.
