‘Transcultural Transience’
by ISAAC CHONG WAI and RACHEL MONOSOV
Acud Galerie Berlin, 16 March–15 April

[Press Release]
Karma Ltd. Extended presents TRANSCULTURAL TRANSIENCE, the second chapter of the curatorial collective

Acud Galerie
Veteranenstraße 21, 10119 Berlin

Starting on March 16, 2018at 18:00.

Performance is about forgetting and remembering.
By taking performance seriously as a system of learning,
storing, and transmitting knowledge, performance studies
allows us to expand what we understand by knowledge.
(Diana Taylor in: The archive and the repertoire)

In Transcultural Transience the curatorial collective Karma Ltd. Extended is investigating the vanishing live moment of performance art and its documentation through the creation of new works, commissioned by Isaac Chong Wai and Rachel Monosov. During five weekends, the gallery will host a site-specific and process-oriented performance series.

While focusing on two motifs: The Rehearsal of the Futures and The Rehearsal of the Pasts, the artists are questioning how embodied collective memory can be dealt with through performance. They are using the medium as a tool to re-enact, enact or visualize histories that are made invisible or left out by the Euro-American hegemonic notion of knowledge and image production.

Transcultural Transience aims to break the idea of curating the static, but rather to curate the fleeting. A series of spontaneous movements and rehearsed choreographies will be developed through a dialogue between the performer, the observer, the artists and the curators.

Isaac Chong Wai (Hong Kong/Berlin)

In Rehearsal for the Futures the artist imagines how future generations might look at the current and former ideological consensus of certain body postures, gestures and movements. The performance series deals with these so-called ideological movements or ideological postures in order to look for and propose possible futures. The work of Isaac Chong Wai was featured at the Bauhaus Museum (Weimar), Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Berlin) and the Moscow Biennale for Young Art. http://chongwai.tumblr.com/biography

Performance Dates: March 16/17/18/24/25 and April 14/15 from 16:00 – 19:00 @ ACUD Galerie

Rachel Monosov (Russia/Berlin)

Olympia: one competes against oneself most of the time takes Leni Riefenstahl’s film Olympia (1936) as its initial point and investigates the bodily moment before the action and after, the second between motionlessness and getting into shape. The artist scrapes out this sculptural moment of transition and works with the image of perfect bodies, standing united on the starting blocks and finishing line. Rachel Monosov’s work Transcultural Protocol, a collaboration with Admire Kamudzengerere, was presented at the Zimbabwe Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2017. http://www.rachelmonosov.com

Performance Dates: March 31 and 1/7/8/14/15 April from 16:00 – 19:00 @ ACUD Galerie

Curated by Pauline Doutreluingne and Petra Poelzl.
