WE WANT YOU Happening 4bidGallery Art Residence Amsterdam, Netherlands, 2016
WE WANT YOU plays a double role of seduction and domination. The show reflects and reacts on the relation between the role of spectatorship at art shows and the dynamics at such events. WE WANT YOU situates the spectator as an activator and the artwork as a frame of the relations produced at the art space.
De-neutralizing the white cube, turning it into a comfortable living room where the sound of several voices chatting is always playing along, the space is designed for the relations and interactions among the public. The performer paints the white wall, white, people chat while they wait for the performance to begin. After three hours, the performer leaves the space.
