How to gather? Acting in a Center in a City in the Heart of the Island of Eurasia

Under challenging circumstances, the Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art opts for a radical format and changes its structure: the biennale will be condensed into ten days. Artistic, discursive and reflective moments will shape the space. Located in the Pavilion No.1 of VDNKh, it is here that the Moscow Biennale will evolve, as a think tank in real time.

Biennale: Sept 22 - Oct 1, 2015
Documentary exhibition project: Oct 3 - Oct 11, 2015

I love you hanne lippard

Lippard, Hanne

Born in Milton Keynes, GB
Based in Berlin, DE

Hanne Lippard is an artist whose works are based on text and sound. The voice, her own voice often, is her main tool and mens of creation. Based on stereotypes of everyday language, Hanne Lippard creates compositions of words, repetition and alienations. In her performances, the voice becomes a conductor to tell stories of accumulated speech—consisting of quotes, slogans, text messages, advertisements and melodic abstractions.

Hanne Lippard’s full-time presence in Moscow will be acted out in small single performances, accidental encounters with visitors and spontaneous readings under the motto of “Blackout”. For this, Lippard may find her material on site in the course of the biennial through interaction with the participants. Her involvement might also include unannounced alterations of the space for which she is provided with a “carte blanche”.
