The Smith Cinema • A Performance Affair, Vanderborght, Bruxelles • 7-9 septembre 2018, 11h-19 h • Présentée par la FNAGP

During A Performance Affair. The Panopticon, Lidwine Prolonge will perform The Smith Cinema, in connection with Anna Byskov. Both projects are presented by the FNAGP and curated by Mathilde Roman.

Following the project « Performance TV » curated by Mathilde Roman at La Maison d’Art Bernard Anthonioz in Nogent- sur-Marne (FNAGP), where Lidwine presented Le Cinéma des sœurs SmithAnna Byskov and Lidwine Prolonge present two installations combining different medium that link the presence of the artist in relation to a public. Performance and video play a key role by intertwining the process about looking and being looked at, questioning the capacity of an image to be part of an open narrative performed with the context.

The Panopticon, A PERFORMANCE AFFAIR’s first edition, transforms the second floor of the Vanderborght Building into an immersive space for three days of performances in collaboration with the Brussels Gallery Weekend (7 to 9 September 2018). Inspired by the notion of the Panopticon and the building’s unique architecture, continuous and overlapping performance works by international artists will be presented throughout the dynamic venue. 

Presenting a myriad of performances for sale by emerging and mid-career artists selected by a high-level committee, and featuring Violent Incident, an historic performance video by Bruce Nauman, an auctioned immaterial work by Philippe Parreno, an interactive performance installation by Greg Finger, A PERFORMANCE AFFAIR will put the whole spectrum of the economies of performance art on display and for discussion.
