OPEN CALL for Participants + Invitation to Observe Performance "A.W.#3" Held on October 19 at AIR 3331 Iwamotocho Studio!!!
You are invited to participate in the performance 'Artificial Walk #3'. Eight people can take part. We will walk slowly in a line in the Kanda area of Chiyoda City. You get a blue tarpaulin that you wear as a mantle, and you can keep it after."
- Marie Julia Bollansée (Artist)
Marie Julia Bollansée, based in Antwerp, Belgium, and participating as artist in residence at AIR 3331, will hold her performance "A.W.#3, Artificial Walk #3" for the very first time in Tokyo on October 19 (Sat), 2019. She invites the audience to participate.
For this ephemeral performance, she creates a dress in indigo colored sheep wool, which is knit by her mother. She asks for eight people to walk with her. A blue tarpaulin functions as an artificial extension around the body. By walking together, the performers generate A.S., Artificial Spirituality (rather than Artificial Intelligence, or A.I.)
Bollansée invites volunteers to take this chance to become part of the performances of "Artificial Walks" held throughout the world. In the past, "A.W.#1" was held in Belgium, and "A.W.#2" in Germany.
*October 19 (Sat), 2019 at AIR 3331 Iwamotocho Studio (start and end point)
(Address: 3-6-8 Iwamotocho, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo 101-0032)
*14:00: Artist talk by Marie Julia Bollansée, everybody is welcome!
*14:30: Start of performance, "Artificial Walk #3"
Eight members of the audience wear a blue tarpaulin mantle and form a line. They follow the artist who walks ahead and sets the rhythm (members may only leave the line for unavoidable situations).
*After the walk, the line arrives back at the AIR 3331 Iwamotocho Studio. You can keep your blue tarpaulin, which the artist has numbered and signed. You achieve a unique edition of art!
