Brandstof | Performance Marijke De Roover, Artist Talk Alexis Blake
5 Oct 2019 Starts at: 3 p.m. Location: Garage Rotterdam

This edition of 'Brandstof' will be hosting two outstanding artists invited by Nina Folkersma, curator for this performance programme on the occasion of the exhibition 'What if Women Ruled the World?'.

The renowned artist Alexis Blake (US, 1981) will talk about her multidisciplinary practice in conversation with Nina Folkersma.
In her work she brings together visual art and performance through various methods of translation such as choreography, sculpture, video, text and script. She explores the language of movement, creates spaces to expose and elude systems of representation and mechanisms of subjectivisation. In doing so she aims to reformulate the relationship between the object and the subject.

Marijke De Roover (BE, 1990) will be showing her performance 'Live, Laugh, Limerence, 2019', which premieres this week in both London (Frieze Art Fair) and Rotterdam.*
De Roover works with video, text and performance. She focuses on the meaning of identity and its performative aspect and thereby also touches on their social and political constructions.
