DADA 2016 Zurich - Leda Papaconstantinou - August figs at Christmas
Flux Laboratory Zurich: 5-26 February 2016
Flux Laboratory Geneva: 14 April – 4 May 2016
Cooking understood as a well organized space within which random thinking occurs.
A passive camera records the flowing concurrence of two separate activities.
Cooking and talking. Speech becomes the bonding agent for the performance.
August figs at Christmas is a video performance, first presented at the State Museum of Contemporary Art in the context of Thessaloniki Biennale 2015.
Leda Papaconstantinou is one of the primary and few artists in Greece who has used performance as an expressive medium during the ’70s and ’80s and her presence is constant and continuous since the late 60’s. Her work, apart from performances, consists of installations, paintings, sculptures, video and film.
