REMAINING/REMINDING/REMAINS/REMAINDERS

Saturday, October 1st 2016 to Sunday, October 2nd 2016

REMAINING/REMINDING/REMAINS/REMAINDERS
is open 11am-7pm on Saturday, October 1 and Sunday, October 2

Bushwick: long ago defaced and degraded by "mural style" ads, Bichon Frise shit, bro vomit, and crêpe trucks, we perch on the edge of an almost-imaginary recent past, clinging to an old lease as "postmodern mediterranean" buildings march us shoulder to shoulder towards total erasure. This exhibition briefly stages the melancholy, mortification, embattlement, righteousness, humor and violence of artists who were working in performance art before it became a joke on TV, artists who use "recycled materials" because they are free, artists whose politics, identities, and "socio-ethics" are core elements of practice not marketing tools. 

REMAINING/REMINDING/REMAINS/REMAINDERS is visual works and video by artists who celebrate no "post" (gentrification)(modern)(colonial)(structural), working through ongoing colonial, imperial, and capital-driven histories, leaving remainders of performances, using remains and scraps of materials used for other purposes, providing reminders of what matters. 

PPL is a BOS Hub site.

Romance lives in the gap between reality and the dream world.
You don’t have to be miserable to be deep, relationships with objects teach us a lot about ourselves, libido is only demonized b/c it’s a powerful tool for haptic touch that can inform corporeal understanding and cause alternate perceptions of happiness. Nia Nottage is a performance artist.

FRANCES YEOLAND
Visual artist | Sydney

Human attempt at understanding is about ownership, and labeling is a symptom of this failure. This work is a composition of material that asks for meaning from the viewer based on its appearance of logic and rationality. It's is an absurd puzzle of familiar, tactile and industrial materiality. It is a system of symbols taken out of context, reframing our perception of value and meaning.

The sounds through the door, your energy into the bodies of those around you, the wound through the bandage, the the outside, inside, and vice versa, past into present, other realms into this one, one day into the next: how do we know when we are "performing"?

Austerity is a valuation schema that devalues humans, urging us to work harder and harder to justify our value to corporations and institutions as they withhold more and more resources. While austerity is a formal, conservative political and economic manoeuvre, withholding is also an act of devaluation, used as an abusive emotional and psychological tactic or emergent as a symptom of waning respect.

How do we show respect and value each other? What do we give each other? What do we take? How are we ourselves and not ourselves? How are we others? Critical surveys, homages, interpretations, and projections in the forms of performances.

This PERFORMANCY FORUM will perform resistance to austerity, to withholding, and the systematic devaluing of creative labor: INDULGE (IN) EACH OTHER!
