Axel Berger / Performances
Malmö Gallery Weekend 2021
Location: Seminar Room

Audible presence, performance, duration: from 5 minutes to 30 minutes.

Audible presence is a constructed situation where the participant sits on a chair with his/her back towards the room. The intensity of the situation is created from the unseen presence of an unknown person. The lack of conclusive information regarding the unknown person leads to curiosity, deduction and projection. The participant may stay for as short or as long as he/she likes.

Visible presence, performance, duration: from 5 minutes to 30 minutes.

Visible presence is a constructed situation experienced one-on-one. The situation appears like a room for interrogation, a gameshow or perhaps an everyday scene of waiting. In a secluded room the participant meets another person sitting on a chair. On the floor there are markings, suggesting different directions, borders or vantage points. The spatial relation between the two is asymmetric and might be felt as voyeuristic. The situation can be explored freely but the participant mustn’t reveal him/herself to the other.

Opening hours: Friday, 18-22 & Saturday to Sunday, 12-16 

Booking: You can book a timeslot to participate in the two performances in the IAC’s café.
