Departing from the notion of “unverifiable realities” as a concept through which to attend to and explore the current times, Andrea Božić and Julia Willms | TILT and Veem House have co-curated a programme presenting a constellation of artistic works across performance and visual art. We have invited artists whose work playfully merges gameplay, art and the world from very different perspectives, creating a situation of ‘unverifiable reality’ between these fields. Throughout the program the works on show propose transformative modes of engaging with and re-imagining the world through art while developing new artistic languages and unclassifiable forms of spectatorship.
9-10 July, the work of artists Tchelet Pearl Weisstub, Tom K. Kemp and Clara García Fraile will be spread throughout Veem House, inviting into an encounter with, and a journey through the performances and the building, presenting a film documenting a search for unseen animals, a performative installation featuring a silent galop of a fragmented horse, and a role play game unpacking the images of the inner human body as a vast industrialised city.
8 July, Open Studio with Billy Mullaney. Currently in residency in Veem House to continue his research for Never Never Never Ever Never Never Ever Never Ever Ever EVER Ever EVER Give Up Unless It Gets Too Hard 2. This upcoming performance consists of filming and editing a promotional trailer for the performance itself. A crew painstakingly sets up a pre-scripted series of shots onstage, records them, and delivers the footage to an editor who assembles the trailer live.
6-7 July, Open Studio: During a residency at Veem House, Andrea Božić and Julia Willms | TILT continue the research for their new performance How To Exit a Reality (Attempt 1 of 19). A performance in collaboration with the Moon based on the Metonic cycle, where the Moon returns to exactly the same place in the sky and against the same backdrop of the night sky star constellations every 19 years. The performance is based on the escape room principle: we are looking for an exit but every time we find one, we end up in yet another reality.
All the works in the programme propose a different mode of encounter or alternative engagements with the reality we might take as fixed.
