Rigged games (1999-2007)

Various locations

 

I have staged a few performances with groups of people sitting around a table, involved in a game. Their attention were focused inwards, away from the audience. They would speak if natural, but had not been encouraged to perform an act. The duration of the events were 2/ 2.30 hours with a slow progression, so the audience could drift back and forth between the performance and other things that may grasp their attention.

 

Viewed as games the happenings were competitions, but as performances they were collaborations.

 

Afterwards props used in the performances were left to be exhibited. The performances/ installations are presented in their entirety in the games-section of this site, together with the drawing-projects they are closely connected to. There are links below each photo.
