ART ROTTERDAM ~ A performance by and a conversation with Helen Zeru (DAI, 2017) in the context of Framer Framed's Water No Get Enemy
This year Framer Framed will be part of the international art fair Art Rotterdam! It will participate in the special Intersections program, a space for non-commercial presentation spaces, which offers a stage to young talent in contemporary art.
During the four days of the fair (February 11th – February 14th), Framer Framed will present the program Water No Get Enemy, which is twofold – it consists of an installation and a live interactive program.
Installation: El Órgano Oriental (ELOO)
Artist Antonio Jose Guzman presents his installation El Órgano Oriental (ELOO), a unique combination of genetics and art. The project features punch card piano rolls of music for the organ created from Guzman’s own genetic DNA, which is indigenous, African and Spanish Sephardic. The project was first presented at the 2015 Havana Biennale, and is now adapted to the Dutch context, including a classic Dutch organ. Artist assistant: Janna Adriaanse.
In dialogue with ELOO, we present a live interactive program with daily performances, curated by Amal Alhaag. The program offers a stage to alternative art practices and practitioners who dissect and question the current global conditions around the representation of passport, gender, borders and body politics.
Throughout the four days, Water No Get Enemy showcases artistic perspectives, practices and conversations that experiment with alternative construction of histories, biographies, futures, identities and memories with a special emphasize on Donna Haraway’s concept “elsewhere”.
On February 14th: Elsewhere is Somewhere near Nowhere
