Would you go to a performance you know nothing about?
This is an impossible performance, no-one knows the content of it, not even the festival arrangers. The artists Emelie Zilliacus and Martin Paul have been given a chance by the Reality Research Center and the ANTI festival to make a performance without sharing any details about the piece.
The artists have thought about how the bureaucracies governing the funding of the art field have a negative effect on creative work. Artists have to justify their art in funding applications, reports and marketing. Zilliacus and Paul have experienced that this has the effect of draining the creative process. Artists have to present the answers before even having explored the questions.
Who decides what art should be seen and produced? The funders, the artists, the audience? What are the relations of these three in making a performance? Exhibit will be an attempt to explore these questions whilst still being a part of the structures the artists oppose.
“We welcome you to this utopian idea of ours, our secret performance that is purely meant for you to experience, nothing more – nothing less.”
