Residency Frederique De Montblanc and Madaleine Trigg
Frederique and Madaleine share a common interest in exploring and subverting the resonances of materials and their impact on body and
scenography. For their first collaboration, they will reflect on spaces that can both constrain movement and offer new performance possibilities.
Drawing upon the relationship between their daily and their artistic routine, Madaleine and Frederique will design a series of experiments for each other. They will create performance spaces that evoke a certain familiarity but for some reason aren't comforting. In this mirage of intimacy, they will explore these new interactions between space and body but also between documentation and performance.
Their research will gravitate towards cases of environmental disease, cabin fever, the impact of solitary confinement in prisons, insomnia and the history of monomania in art practice.
And then, they’ll also try to breathe differently.
