ZIL Cultural Centre will host the week-long project, titled Emma Waltraud Howes: Scores for Daily Living. Performances, a discussion with curators and much more, will be on offer between 26 February and 3 March.
The work of Canadian artist Emma Waltraud Howes is based on a synthesis of choreography, performance, video, sculpture, sound and 2D-media.
The Scores for Daily Living performance was inspired by the floor plan of the Kunstverein am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz building in Berlin. For several days in a row, Howes will be exploring the space of ZIL Cultural Centre and she will invite the audience to participate in the performance.
The artist has drawn her own alternative choreographic plans on the floor in the form of scores, signs or instructions, implying a multitude of actions within the space.
The Scores for Daily Living performance will take place on 26, 27 and 28 February (7 pm). On 1 March, at 7.30 pm, there will be a discussion between Emma Waltraud Howes and curators Maria Veie Sandvik and Margarita Osepyan. On 3 March at 3.00 pm, visitors are invited to watch screening of video documentation from the artist’s archive.
