galerie OPEN by Alexandra Rockelmann (closed, 2012)

Private Gallery
First Performance
  Performance Number 1: 14:00 Sunday 28th November

In the first performance of the Adventus series from Zachary Fabri's exhibition NOT COOL: Out of Balance, is a collaboration with the artist Linnea Saasen, which investigates the concept and real-time experience of waiting. They have created a sequence of actions and non actions, which demonstrate and deconstruct the concept of linear time as experienced by the audience.

The Latin word adventus, is translated from the Greek word parousia, which relates to the arrival of an anticipated person of royal or official stature. Zachary Fabri is interested in the ceremony and performance that surrounds Advent.

The galerie Open performance series Adventus presents four new and different performances featuring artists Linnea Saasen, Juliane Zelwies, as well as other guest performers.

About Linnea Saasen:

Linnea Saasen is a Norwegian artist, living and working in Berlin. She uses the freedom and abstract qualities of performance art, alongside photography, to realise her ideas. Additionally the physical body and it's physical presence act as a strong tool in her work, through which she is able to confront the audience in a more aggressive and honest way. Performance is a medium that allows her to experiment and play-around, which she sees as a contrast to the more traditional forms of the Fine Arts.

In her own performances, Linnea works with the concepts of the confrontation of society and it's construction, of identity and self destruction, and of power and youth. She seeks aesthetic, simple and abstract forms of self-expression.

"Through movements and action I find a more honest and sometimes an easier way to communicate - compared to words and conversations."
