The third edition of Performance Day, Romania’s only event dedicated to performing arts. This edition of Performance Day, curated by Alex Mirutziu, returns at Centrul de Interes with five artists, a film, and three performances on the program.
Catinca Malaimare’s film Eight of Clubs |♣|, exhibited here in a performative reincarnation, is a film in which she manipulates a LED photography light with eight parts held together by a circular core, a shape similar to a spider or a withering flower. Malaimare tests the limits of her own anatomy during the performance, using the total reach of her body to handle the object’s limbs. This work generates a sensuous experience amplified by the sound of skin friction against the light’s artificial surface and the performer’s stare at the viewer through the screen.
