Five-day durational performance, I-D Gallery, COFA

Exhibition: Astrid Lorange - Mixed Oranges

Event dates

Monday, 4 November, 2013 to Friday, 8 November, 2013

In this five-day durational work, Dr Astrid Lorange was installed — energetically and metabolically — in the ID gallery, where a temporary space was figured for the labours of thinking and writing (most basically: a table, chair, lamp, some books, food, a kettle, coffee, wine). Daily, from 9-6, she wrote, with her laptop’s screen projected on a wall. The performance and exhibition considered the effort of writing. During the week, all were welcome in the gallery to look, read, eat lunch, work, nap, stretch, think or play. At the end of the week, by way of closing, she read what was written to those who were gathered in space. The idea is not only to exhibit the writing body, but also to invite into the performance of writing all the other bodies that are co-present in its labour.
