[404_WILD BODIES: Artists Researchers & 4bid gallery]

This page is dedicated to the field of performance practices.

As a platform for artist to share and show work, 4bid features some of the performance artist part of a group currently named [404].
They are on a series of residencies framed by Home of Performance Practices, ArtEZ in Arnhem NL, developing their research and collaborations.

The artists featured below have different backgrounds, different countries of origin, and propose looking at performance in different ways.

They meet in the Netherlands every other month to share work and feedback with one another and develop their practice with the support of the group.

Micro residencies Feb-May 2021

February 20-21, 2021
ERYFILI DRAKOPOULOU

During my residency I did a 5h live-streamed open studio experiment that was aiming to interact with the audience over the decisions taken and the actions performed on the photos of my ancestors. While I am researching the possibilities of re/de-constructing identity through the manipulation of family archives with collage, I intended to explore how an individual’s family tree affects-concerns-becomes a collective question on identity and how the responsibility of the ways we choose to look at the past, affects present and future narratives.

FOIVI PSEVDOU

In walked in 4bid Gallery in different paces until I could not walk anymore.

I talked and connected time to my surroundings: ‘There is a time to read the graffiti on the walls …’

not bodies 
not material.
It is not a proof

not what I intended it to be
not confusion.
I intended it to be confusing.

it is a body. virtual.
it is a proof
it is what I had intended

not vague
not mine
not live

it is not alive
it is not a memory
it is not a fiction
I distrust fiction.

it is vague
it is a memory
all is a fiction.

not loyal
not ephemeral
not unforgettable

not digits
it is also digits
I distrust digits.

it is memorable.

It is not nothing
make it be less.

It is a reaction.

Someone said reacting is one way of responding.
It is not a wilful reaction.

It is not a shadow.
It is not its shadow.
It is not the shadow of that performance.
It is not what it is.







I’m back.

It’s a digital performance.
A performance of digits.
Fingers. Fingers digiting things. What things? No-things.
No thanks. No real things, at least, no digital prints left. No prints.
No real fingers either. No digital art. No digits, no art. No party no fun.

Not for somebody. Not for us. Not to be performed. Not numerable. Not digitable.

ELLA TIGHE

The Hospitality of Surrender  

How to invite surrender, how to take care, harness and create space for it.  

Surrender not as an action but as an unfolding through movement processes.  

Surrender as a state of which is dropped into, a softness, a gentleness, an assertiveness. 

At OT301 I worked with the 2 movement practices that I investigate surrender through. A FORM solo – days 58 & 59 of an ongoing process. Then a STREAMING practice, in which I work with musician Nikkie Kemp to allow surrender to emerge through an idea of formlessness – with music and movement emerging together out of the present moment.

ANOUSHKA NAIR

During the residency at OT301, I explored the intra-action of the materiality of my flesh and the textures and materiality of specific objects I used during the day. I was interested in recontextualizing them to discover the change in relation, affect and perception of these commonly ‘used’ objects when taken outside, in the natural environment.
