Johannes Willi, Yypfyffe (2018)

A collective experience, commissioned in relation to Basel’s own performative tradition, Fasnacht, is Johannes Willi’s Yypfyffe (2018), a project envisioned with the Basel Fasnacht clique “Die Unbaggene.” The artist presents a forest-like setting in which the theme and props he designed for the clique are inaugurated with specially built music instruments. This and other events taking place throughout the exhibition’s duration lead to its grand finale on February 18 and into the wee hours of February 19, when all of Basel turns off its lights at 4 am for the Morgestraich, the ritual beginning of carnival, thus connecting the exhibition to the broader city’s collective performance. (excerpts of the exhibition sheet produced by Kunsthalle Basel).

Sophie Jung, Paramount VS Tantamount (2018)Kunsthalle Basel+41612069900

exhibition

In cooperation with Kaserne Basel and Kunsthalle Basel, and in partnership with the Centre culturel suisse in Paris.

Closely related to, and borrowing aspects of, dance, theater, the visual arts, and the living arts, performance has become the medium of choice for numerous Swiss artists. Museum Tinguely presents its own performance art panorama in PerformanceProcess. 60 Years of Performance Art in Switzerland with 41 artists, companies, and groups. Museum Tinguely also invites visitors to share the experience of several live happenings and interdisciplinary events throughout the exhibition. The focus is on the incredible variety and topicality of performance art in all its many permutations, from Jean Tinguely's performances to the materially elusive works of Florence Jung.

Hannah Weinberger, facilities and utilities (2018)Kunsthalle Basel+41612069900

Hannah Weinberger's facilities and utilities (2018) requires Kunsthalle Basel to make certain items, from curtained clothes racks to snacks to a fog machine, available to any performer in the exhibition. Weinberger’s artwork resides not in the objects themselves (which may or may not be selected and used) but in the intervention that re-directs an institution’s attention to servicing the needs of performers, rather than the other way around. (excerpts of the exhibition sheet produced by Kunsthalle Basel)

John M Armleder & Christian Marclay, Simultaneous Duo Versions (2017)Musée Tinguely

In 1985 in New York and in 2006 in Philadelphia, Armleder and Marclay realized various performances together. Simultaneous Duo Versions was developed, performed and recorded on film on 11 March 2014 at the ECAL, Lausanne. They are united by an understanding of art that - in a very serious way - does not take itself at all seriously, that can work with much or very few resources.

Marie-Caroline Hominal, The Triumph of Fame (2017)Kaserne Basel+41616666000

«The Triumph of Fame» is one of a collection of six poems by Petrarch (1304-1374) titled «I Trionfi», which describe the phases of life by opposing virtues in duels: Fame wins over Death but is defeated by Time and Eternity.

In the backstage of a theatre, beyond the scenery, Marie-Caroline Hominal welcomes one guest at a time. In this performance the artist strips down the codes of theatrical artifice in a phantasmagorical and intimate one-to-one encounter.

Simone Aughterlony & Hahn Rowe, Biofiction (2017)Kaserne Basel+41616666000

«Biofiction» is a rare love story between many, an unexpected clearing on a wilderness that offers a close-up on human and non-human assemblages and their affects. Situated within an inquiry into vibrant matter, a choreographic poem emerges that is both careful and utterly libidinal. Gathering the remains of the previous two works in «The Biofiction Trilogy» – the hot pink flesh placeholder, wood and crafting tools, the rope that weaves, the natural and artificial entanglement of fluids and materials – «Biofiction» creates a new horizontal terrain that renders a plurality of agencies without ontological hierarchy. What may ordinarily be considered inadequate stimuli is now attended to for all its sensual and specific qualities, cultivating an irrational love of matter. The intimate rapport, the dance that spectrums acts of labour, pleasure, cohabitation and simply ‘being with’ refuses the normative divisions between nature and culture, male and female or any such binary. A practice of reorienting and redistributing the senses generates a queer consciousness and affirms a landscape that is both present and utopian. We see stereotypes and prototypes, we recognize then delight in misrecognition, we may even laugh despite ourselves. Understanding Biofiction in terms of a narrative of sexuality that does not yet exist sustains curiosity - defying conventions or identification renders this choreographic work as a continuous world-building practice.
Is this movement research, music or fun post-porn practice? Beyond the associations, it brings the bodies and companion materials in conversation to know no difference between being excited, being exciting and being excited-with.

Imagine that you go to a concert and there is nothing to see on stage – yet. You don’t hear anything, either, even though the performance has already begun. A performance that, for the time being, consists of merely a backdrop of sound, that plays with the empty space, with the pause before the onset, the tension before the explosion. And with you. You are the primary ingredient of the evening. You generate the sound, acting as the instrument and soundbox. You are at once Performer and part of the audience. And suddenly your seat will vibrate, you begin to sway and pulsate in close dialogue with everything that surrounds you.

Marie-Caroline Hominal, Silver (2017)Kaserne Basel

"Silver" is a dance and musical performance, a crescendo where Marie-Caroline Hominal brings text, light, smoke and choreography all together for a 30-minute show. "Silver" is a reflection on the idea of the "show", what is a "show" and how to present a "show", but also on how energy, beats and movements affect us personally.
Thus opens "Silver". Marie-Caroline escapes the usual theatrical settings to venture in the sunny fields of electronic music. A bewitching performance using and mixing live sounds programmed by Plastoc and a set specially designed by Inox. Marie-Caroline Hominal combines different elements of her work—dance, performance, writing & music—to offer a purely heteroclitic object... It is so so MCH.

Foofwa d'Imobilité and Jonathan O'Hear trace the history of dance in the twentieth century. Danced demonstrations, videos and historical elements intersect to address in a personal, playful and empirical way, the major trends of contemporary dance. In the first part, it gives us a glimpse of what was dance before the twentieth century and discusses in turn the great figures who have allowed this art to become what it is today…In the second part, it develops an important aspect of this legacy—as appropriate and as requested—it may deal with transmission methods, the relationship between dance and politics, that which was born in the twentieth century and again found in today’s art, a particular trend.

La Ribot, Distinguished Hits 1991-2000 (2017)Kaserne Basel+41616666000

Initiated in 1993 by La Ribot, the Distinguished Pieces project is a long- term work which will eventually lead to the creation of 100 pieces. Up to 7 minutes in duration, each of the «Distinguished Pieces» created thus far have been arranged into different groupings and presented as a series of performances. «Distinguished Hits» brings together a new reconfiguration of some of the early Pieces that were included in the series presented between 1993 -2000 along with the solo «Oh Socorro! Gloria!» (1991). Under this new title, the word ‘hits’ evokes the idea of emblematic pieces - which are just a small part of this on-going work. When La Ribot created «Soccoro! Gloria!» in 1991, it heralded the principals that she would go on to develop with the continually evolving «Distinguished Pieces». This burlesque striptease plays with the expectations of the spectator as the ‘distinguished’ method is applied: juxtaposing an unusual combination of clothes and accessories with music, the layers on her body highlight different physical states and poetical outbursts. Inventing a choreographic format that claims brevity, borderline humour and economy of means, the feminine figure is in constant metamorphosis, combining savagery and refinement with  delicacy and destructive irony. Disguised modes of use, exuberant fashion shows, precarious installations, ephemeral manifestos; all these ingredients are mixed, touched and diverted to form a carefully constructed bric-a-brac, which uses nudity as a weapon and scrutinizes the image of the body under all its seams. In 2003, the anthology version, Panoramix, brought together the first three series: 13 Piezas Distinguidas, 1993, Más Distinguidas 1997 and Still Distinguished 2000. Distinguished Hits (1991-2000) is a compact new reconfiguration: a laminate which allows us to both examine each piece as an autonomous haiku and replace them on the canvas of this vast performative patchwork.

Massimo Furlan, Blue Tired Heroes (2017)Kaserne Basel

This project is based on the «(love story) Superman» performance, created in Lausanne in April 2005 and further developed in Paris in September 2005 under the title «Superman Cosmic Green». The aim of this project was to experiment with the embodiment of the heroic character of Superman using on an extremely simple costume, available to the children we used to be: a blue “pyjama”, red underpants, red socks, and a red cape. We further worked with the typical postures of the hero: crossed arms, hands on the thighs, flying positions, etc.

One of the characteristics and interests of this project is that those who embodied the hero were simple individuals (small, tall, skinny, fat) with nothing heroic. Furthermore several performers simultaneously faced the public, in identical costumes. The project was simultaneously extremely burlesque and profoundly humane. With «Old Station Heroes» we wanted to further pursue this research, with the embodiment of a single character by an important number of performers, old aged, and in a public space.

Schick / Gremaud / Pavillon, 40 minutes (création)Centre culturel suisser+33 1 42 71 44 50

Money is time: this is the idea behind X Minutes, an on-going show subtitled “a sustainable comedy”. It is a performance machine set in motion on a purely commercial basis, with no aesthetic framework and no predetermined content. The Schick/Gremaud/Pavillon trio sells a five-minute sequence to whoever will buy it, making it clear that the different sequences bought by different theatres or festivals are cumulative. The CCS is the eighth venue to show the project: it has bought minutes 35 to 40: so the show is called 40 MINUTES. It repeats the 35 minutes produced at other venues, and adds a new segment, specially made at, and for, the CCS. It's a conceptual approach, but it also involves some purely formal ground rules, for example: each five-minute segment must be performed in the language of, or in relation to the language of, the place where it is performed; and each buyer must provides an object to be brought onto the stage.

San Keller, Je suis vos hommes (création)Centre culturel suisse+33 1 42 71 44 50

A performance exclusively for women.
San Keller has become known for his collaborative performances and ephemeral interventions. The relationships between art and life are at the heart of his work, approached in a critical, conceptual or playful way. His pieces are usually based on clearly stated rules and contractual frameworks, but the intervention of the audience always produces unexpected results.

Neopost Foofwa, /Inutile : Don Austérité 2 (création)Centre culturel suisse+33 1 42 71 44 50

Presented in the Focus Foofwa d'Imobilité

Foofwa d'Imobilité designed this project as a residency, a morning-to-night occupation of space. When the CCS is closed, a video monitor shows his actions live in the bookshop window. For the choreographer, the idea is to continue a project on stretching time. For Jonathan O'Hear (the set designer who has worked closely with Foofwa since 2009), it is an opportunity to experiment with various phases of sleep. /Inutile : Don Austérité 2 also involves a broader reflection on “usefulness” and “uselessness”: how dance and art can make uselessness and generosity into essential social values.

Episode 1

Conférence de choses is a journey to the heart of contemporary collaborative encyclopedic knowledge, revealing the vast fields it covers and some of the improbable paths that cross it. Pierre Mifsud – a kind of contemporary Pécuchet– arrives in the space, greets the audience, and begins jumping from link to link, leaping from subject to subject, bouncing from bisons to Queen Margot, from Descartes to Haribo sweets…he just never stops talking. The written text gives way to improvisations linked to the context of the performance.

Presented in the Focus Christian Marclay

Played by pianist Jacques Demierre.
Ephemera is the result of the accumulation, over many years, of eclectic and musical notations gathered here and there from advertisements, illustrations, menus, and so on. These ephemera have been assembled, then photographed and reproduced as a series of 28 folios. Based on this set of printed patterns, Christian Marclay has created a musical score of the same name, intended to be played by professional musicians.

Shuffle is a book that takes the form of a giant pack of cards, each printed with a different photograph. Like a Fluxus box, a random composition by John Cage or a Charles and Ray Eames construction set, the cards offer a visual experience but are also intended to be played like a score. The set also includes explanations and instructions by the artist.

Katja Schenker, PERFORMANCE : Peau articulée (création)Centre culturel suisse+33 1 42 71 44 50

Presented in the Focus Katja Schenker

Katja Schenker's work focuses on performance and sculpture. An object often results from the process of her performances. Her projects explore existential ideas: the relationship between interior and exterior, the Self and others, permeability and belonging. Her work is about emotion and physical sensations. For the CCS, she has designed a performance piece based on an image that relates to the unconscious mind: filling cracks, masking openings, smoothing out the uneven surfaces of bodies while respecting their nature, their changing shape, the way they move and bend. The starting point for the project is a special rendering technique applied to façades in Le Marais. The choice of material and the close relationship with architecture and place provides a metaphorical framework for a complex psychological tableau. The performance involves sophisticated expertise and requires total symbiosis between artist and material.

Présenté dans le cadre du Focus Massimo Furlan

An old-fashioned merry-go-round stands in the rectangular courtyard of the museum. This familiar object is like a ready-made recontextualised in a major cultural venue. It is also a device: a thinking machine that sets words, phrases and ideas turning. Several thinkers, wearing checked suits and skull masks, get on the merry-go-round and talk as the evening goes on. They state concepts and tell stories about the world of art and the end of the world.

Heinrich Lüber, a major figure of performance art in Switzerland, presents himself in often extreme situations—on the façades of buildings, on rooftops, attached to structures. With Volute, a new performance designed for PerformanceProcess, he seeks to embody the spoken word in a physical and spatial gesture. Taking inspiration from the comical figure of Harlequin, he stands on a revolving elliptical mirror with a baroque horn sticking out of his body. This revolving device projects the words and actions of the artist in a continuous spiral.

This eclectic artist produces sculptures, paintings, photos and videos. Over the past few years, performance has occupied a more and more significant place in his work. For the CCS, he has designed an on-going performance taking place over the space of five days. Each day, a performer, entirely painted with coloured stripes by the artist, plays a script, which prompts interactions with the audience and leads him to grab a set of instruments to make a giant “live” painting.

Yan Duyvendak, Yan Duyvendak's first solo performances retrospectiveCentre culturel suisser+33 1 42 71 44 50

KEEP IT FUN FOR YOURSELF (1995, 10')

By singing songs that talk about art a cappella, Yan Duyvendak ironically explores the role of the artist. He respects the tempo of the songs, plays on embarrassing silences, and uses minimal staging, including himself in a process that lays bare the performance.

 

UNE SOIRÉE POUR NOUS (1999, 15')

Une soirée pour nous combines international channel-hopping (programmes, weather forecasts, adverts) with a Céline Dion concert dedicated to René, her sick husband and manager. She talks to him live, and René's image appears on screens. Yan Duyvendak becomes Céline Dion, an object of aversion and fascination.

 

YOU INVITED ME, DON'T YOU REMEMBER (2002, 17')

Yan Duyvendak frees himself from the image and uses film soundtracks. The performer's sounds and movements produce the illusion of images. The artist references the figure of evil, which can take many forms but which never actually appears.

 

YOU'RE DEAD! (2003, 30')

You're Dead! references the world of videogames, transforming the performance space into a virtual landscape in which the artist plays an avatar that moves, hunts, and shoots. His choreographic reinterpretation expresses the gap between the real and the virtual and the effort required for identification.

DREAMS COME TRUE (2003, 23')

The pathetic careers of people who believe their dreams can come true in TV reality shows. Among these illusions, Yan Duyvendak integrates solutions from people who want to teach him how to be a star. He breaks down the mechanisms of this dehumanising competition.

 

SELF-SERVICE (2003, 15')

Self-service involves a camera on a tripod pointed at a photo of a concrete building, and a monitor. When the artist moves the monitor towards the floor, the image reveals the lower storeys of the building and the road. In the artist's hands, the monitor no longer screens the image but films it like a camera.

 

MY NAME IS NEO (FOR FIFTEEN MINUTES), (2001, 15')

Can we be the “chosen one” for fifteen minutes? And what remains when the screen goes blank, when Batman, James Bond, or “Neo, the One” have disappeared? My Name is Neo confronts an action film full of special effects with the raw physicality of a human being.

Alexandra Bachzetsis, From A to B via C (2014)Centre Pompidou, Forum -1r+33 1 44 78 12 33

At the centre of this project is Diego Velàsquez' famous painting of “Venus at her Mirror” as an emblematic image of perfection. This piece is a complex choreography in which movement, observation and mirror images constitute conscious actions transposed from one dancing body to another. For less than an hour, the trio strives to deconstruct the systems of choreography by recycling the mechanisms of the so-called “conceptual” dance of the 1990s: we see dancers naming their steps as they execute them, bodies entwined to achieve “otherness”, and the use of pop songs that blend emotion and self-reflexion. But here, Alexandra Bachzetsis is more interested in the way we consume images and our declining ability to create a hierarchy between a real event and its screen image: to what should we give priority?

Commissioned by the Tate Modern in London, the Biennale de l'Image en Mouvement in Geneva, and the Jumex Foundation in Mexico City.

After the performance on 24 October, Alexandra Bachzetsis will be interviewed by Serge Laurent.

Ioannis Mandafounis & Aoife McAtamney, One One One (2015)Centre culturel suisser+33 1 42 71 44 50

Ioannis Mandafounis and Aoife McAtamney invite us to break the rules, to disturb and unsettle the audience and passers-by, but also to grab their attention and challenge them. The dancers translate the emotions of the audience, transform them, and make them into a danced form. The artists take public space as a place for experimentation rather than performance. To do this, they physically and mentally destabilise reality and give themselves the chance to explore its limits and its relationship to transgression.

Everything is true, and yet nothing proves it: as her pieces are never documented visually, they develop into rumours, spread by those who were there. At PerformanceProcess, a non-spectacular action discreetly infiltrates the vernissage. Watch out! You may be betrayed by déjà-vu.

Apart from his famous explosions and controlled destructions, some of Roman Signer's interventions are more like “action pieces” or “temporal sculptures”. Time and space are decisive elements, and every second counts in the process of transformation the artist seeks to set in motion.

Martina-Sofie Wildberger, RE- (recréation)Centre culturel suisser+33 1 42 71 44 50

Martina-Sofie Wildberger seeks to give form to a text in space and explore the political aspect of poetic expression. She focuses on the sound of the spoken text as a raw material, presenting it in French, German, and Swiss German, which become fertile ground from which meaning can emerge.

Marius Schaffter & Jérôme Stünzi, Constructionisme (2015)Centre culturel suisser+33 1 42 71 44 50

In Constructionisme, Marius Schaffter and Jérôme Stünzi try to regain control over the social construction of reality. Before the public performance, they create objects for study from scratch, like modest craft projects. When the time comes, Marius Schaffter presents, analyses and dissects these sculptures. Meticulous, erudite and passionate, he brings out the meaning that resides within—or on the surface of— the objects. Constructionnisme earned Marius Schaffter & Jérôme Stünzi the Premio 2015, a Swiss award that encourages performing arts initiatives.

Marie-Caroline Hominal, Le Triomphe de la Renommée (2013)Centre culturel suisser+33 1 42 71 44 50

The Triumph of Fame is one of a series of six poems by Petrarch (1304–1374),Tri I onfi, which describe the stages of life by placing virtues in situations of conflict: Fame triumphs over Death, but is vanquished by Time and Eternity. Marie-Caroline Hominal receives spectators individually in a bedroom, and deconstructs the artifice of theatrical codes in a phantasmagorical, intimate confrontation.

Gisela Hochuli, In Touch with M.O. (2013)Centre culturel suisser+33 1 42 71 44 50

In this piece, Gisela Hochuli references certain works by Meret Oppenheim (M.O.). She considers the artist's work not only from an aesthetic standpoint, but also in terms of its materiality and its importance in a historical and social context. Using a selection of works, she creates a unique piece focusing on the body, the study of materials, and their transformation. In Touch with M.O. was awarded the Prix Suisse de la Performance.

Darren Roshier, Tentative d'entrer dans l'histoire de la performance suisse, épisode 2 (création)Centre culturel suisser+33 1 42 71 44 50

For this project, Darren Roshier explores the idea of different temporalities in a single three-act performance—preparation, performance, and archive. The idea is to create his own chapter in the history of Swiss performance art, and to enter that chapter in the context of the PerformanceProcess programme.
Darren Roshier is associate artist at Le FAR in Nyon.

EW, Les Métamorphoses du cercle (création)Centre culturel suisser+33 1 42 71 44 50

The right hand joins the left, thumbs touching. Then the index fingers, middle fingers, ring fingers and little fingers join at their extremities and the hands form a sphere. In this performance, the first work in a cycle of events based on the thought experiment called “the Chinese room”, designed by US philosopher John Searle, two characters carry out a series of symbolic operations and transpositions. Movement is transferred from one form to another, and it is the experience of the transformations of the circle and the way they resonate that frames the piece. EW works on transverse forms that focus on interactions between the body, constructed spaces, and technology.

Oscar Gómez Mata – L'Alakran, Quart d'heure de culture métaphysique (2015)Centre culturel suisser+33 1 42 71 44 50

This performance presents a physical training session based on the eponymous poem by the Romanian poet Ghérasim Luca. The aim is to situate, without dramatising them, the metaphysical notions contained in the poem (life, death, anxieties, emptiness, ideas, trembling) via the repetition of physical and sound-based exercises. The poet brings the “meta”, the performers bring the “physical”. To show this method to as many people as possible, Oscar Gómez Mata and Esperanza López are accompanied by a few keen practitioners of this physical and philosophical method. The performance is the first in a collection that forms part of a broader project entitled La Conquête de l'Inutile, where the idea is to emphasise what is not usually seen as important, efficient and useful.

Gregory Stauffer, Walking (2015)Centre culturel suisser+33 1 42 71 44 50

Alpine hikes and walks in the city have, in the past, provided sources of inspiration for Gregory Stauffer, who works with video, visual arts and performance. He has made walking both a source of inspiration and the subject of his new solo performance. He humorously and cleverly examines the mechanism that transforms and connects the mind and body as we walk. Gregory Stauffer abandons complex staging, restricting himself to a few props and costumes and focusing on the very essence of wandering: the ground, and the feet.

Grauton (Karen Geyer), Performance (création)Centre culturel suisse+33 1 42 71 44 50

Presented in the Focus Jean Tinguely

A Voyage to the Outer Space (new performance, 26')
Karen Geyer is a sound artist who lives in New York and Zurich. She creates installations using everyday objects (bicycles, fans, kettles, stools) that she transforms into instruments by combining them with simple materials such as wood, string, and rope. The randomness that characterises the composition of the sounds gives the impression that the orchestra comes to life; the artist then filters and amplifies the material she captures using microphones. For this project, she drew particular inspiration from Für Statik, the manifesto Jean Tinguely dropped over Düsseldorf in 1959: “LIVE THE PRESENT TIME, LIVE ON AND IN TIME. FOR BEAUTIFUL AND ABSOLUTE REALITY!”

Presented in the Focus Massimo Furlan

On six evenings, six different thinkers walk around and discuss themes relating to the relationship between Man, his environment, and the people who live in it. This show forms a kind of preamble to the long Nuit Blanche on 3 October… however it is neither a rehearsal nor a preview, it is a performance in its own right.
