Residency presentation: OBJECTS AND SPEECH
In a two week residency at MDT, during the fall 2014, Tove Salmgren is making an inventory of her ideas in relation to the artistic format ”performance”. The materialization of ideas into objects suggests and helps to draw up a distance between Salmgren and her ideas, a distance that in itself writes the outlines of a new ”body” of performance.
This new ”performance body” concerns relations of materiality and immateriality and will be explored in a open showing with the help of the attending audience.
Tove Salmgren works in a landscape of performance, dance and choreography, as an initiator and collaborator in different artistic contexts and formats. Her interest lays in performance as an event for meeting, were preconditions of that meeting, as well as the meeting itself, is set up to be experienced collectively. The materiality of her practice concern formal and informal use of language, with a strong relation to a feministic discourse concerning power structures and relations as well as questions of domination within the tradition of dance.
