Theisen/Pettersen // No Title av Mette Edvardsen
23. okt. kl.20
Hvor: Kristiansand Kunsthall
Når: 23.oktober, kl. 18:00
No Title tar for seg eksistens gjennom negasjon, og leker med språkets muligheter og begrensninger. Forestillingen handler om måten virkeligheten eksisterer i språk og hvordan dette forplanter seg i virkelige rom. No Title tar for seg overgangene mellom minne og fantasi, og omhandler slik delvis seg selv som et meta-teater. Den ser på skillet mellom verden og vår ide om denne, og det usynlige gapet mellom tanke og erfaring. No Title er skrift i ro, og plasserer seg slik i et mellomrom mellom scenekunst, billedkunst og litteratur.
In No Title Mette Edvarsen address existence through negation. Once you leave behind that which is not, the perspective opens to all there is instead. The work continues the play with the possibilities and limits of language, and that of being, in space and in time.
No Title is about how reality exists in language and how this extends into real space. It is about how memory and imagination blur. It is about things and how things can be there and gone at the same time, and that what defines this is various. It is about things that are gone and about things that remain. No Title is about the awareness that all things are impermanent and that nothing lasts forever. It is about things that have gone before their time and things that never quite disappear. It is about what the piece and its making is, what a piece can do, what it is for, what its power and limit could be. It is about the gap between a world and our ideas of it, the invincible gap between thought and experience, between here and there. No Title is a writing in space, a writing that is both additive and subtractive. It is a writing that traces and erases, that moves and halts, that looks at things that are not there and recovers that which is instead.
