Tacit or Loud: where is the knowledge in art?
Symposium and festival for artistic research
Nov 16-Dec 3

Dec 3
Through Composition as Explanation
Marcus Doverud and Liv Strand

The staged performance art work Through Composition as Explanation is composed as a visual and spatial performance featuring some of the concepts thoroughly discussed in a year of reading practice. The knowledge and understanding accumulated is (in)forming a composition where objects, the space in question, human bodies and duration both comprise, and simultaneously, become subject to composition. Through Composition as Explanation premiered at the Auditorium of the Moderna Museet in 2011. We considered the Moderna Museet in Stockholm to be a suitable institution for this initial presentation because of how they own and take care of many classical art pieces. Included in the performance is a poster of one of the artwork by Picasso, owned by the museum, as well as a custom made copy of the artwork.

"Through Composition as Explanation" is part of a collaboration between Marcus Doverud and Liv Strand going on since almost five years. Other outcomes has been the performance "twice twice" premiered at Weld in Stockholm 2012 and a reading practice that we also committed as a one week course at the Royal institute of Art in Stockholm. Now our project continue in the format of written texts aiming for a book centered round we-formation. It will be published 2015.
