Auxesis: Performance, Live Art Festival, tactileBOSCH Gallery & Studios, Cardiff, Opening Night 10th November 6:30- late, 11th – 15th November 10am- 8pm. Dead Line for Submissions: 10th October
From the 10th to the 15th of November, TactileBOSCH Gallery & Studios will host Auxesis: Performance, a five day performance Art festival showcasing the work of some of today’s most established names in Live Art from across Europe including; Falmouth College of Art lecturer Mark Greenwood, Brighton based performance group ProtoPlay and SPART Member Justin McEwen. Alongside the twelve invited artists and collectives the curator is looking to select an additional Performance artist to participate in the festival through an open submission process.
Auxesis: Performance will open with an evening of Live Art on the 10th November with each invited artists creating instant, durational and interventionist work in their own specific space within the vast gallery complex. Over the following four days the physical remnants and photographic documentation of each performance will be exhibited in-situ alongside a continuing programme of performances.
The Curator is looking for a performance to take place through the entirety of the festival to act as the cohesive factor binding together the diverse and energetic performance line-up and exhibition.
The remit for this performance is flexible and the curator will discuss with the chosen artists their work and how it will fit in with the rest of the festival. The selected artist would not have to perform for the entirety of the festivals opening times if they did not wish too but would be expected to create at least one durational act each day.
This will not only be an opportunity to exhibit work alongside some of today’s most established names in Live Art but will also be a rare opportunity to develop extended length durational work. Please find attached a press release containing more information about the festival and a submissions guideline form.
The selected artist will receive a £120 stipend to cover expenses.
