U.S.A. - NEW YORK - PERFORMA 09 - REFENCE - MICHAËL AERTS AND VADIM VOSTERS
Sunday, November, 8 6:30pm
A fencing confrontation between two Belgian artists, this performance claims a new position in the art of fencing-somewhere between fencing as a sport, theatrical fencing, spectacle fencing, and "mensur," or modern academic fencing. The performance will examine the boundaries of four work-related values in our society-power/distance, uncertainty/avoidance, masculinity/ feminity and individualism/collectivism-through a masked confrontation expressed not in words, but in a visual dance.
Michael Aerts (b. 1979 in Belgium) and Vadim Voster, (b. 1979 in France) have shown their work internationally at such venues as S.M.A.K., Ghent, Osaka Contemporary Arts Center, Japan.
