The new PERFORMANCE VOYAGE collection for 2015 is ready and will have its premiere on 8 March 2015 in the Hague. PERFORMANCE VOYAGE 5 showcases video performances by 13 artists and collectives. The PV5 compilation was made from among work submitted in response to an open international call for artists. The theme of the 2015 compilation is “Domestic”, implying such concepts as national, home and even homelessness, as well as family, native, national, political point of view, and immigration.
The first PV5 screening will be held on 8 March in Stichting Ruimtevaart, The Hague, Netherlands. The event is organised in cooperation with In Your Living Room.
In 2015, Performance Voyage 5 videos will be screened globally at 15 different venues in the Nordic countries, Europe, Canada and more.
The artists featured on the screening programme are Annette Arlander (Finland), Yvon Chabrowski (Germany), Sasha Huber (Finland/Switzerland/Haiti), Julieta Maria (Canada), Sara Pathirane (Finland), “Richter/Meyer/Marx(Berlin)” (Germany), Rah Saneie (Canada/Iran), Willem Wilhelmus (Finland/Netherlands) & Tomasz Szrama (Finland/ Poland), and Carlo Zanni (Italy).
The PV5 exhibition in Helsinki in September 2015 will also include works by Jan Hakon Erichsen (Norway), Lea & Pekka Kantonen (Finland), Jenni Markkanen (Finland), and Owen Parry (UK).
The jury members for PV5 were Ray Langenbach, professor of performance art and theory at Theatre Academy in Helsinki, Minna Suoniemi, artist, and Timo Soppela, director, Artists´ Association MUU.
RUIMTEVAART FOUNDATION’S primary mission is to secure affordable spaces in which different disciplines and practitioners can work as well as exhibit. An artist initiative established in 1991, Ruimtevaartalso initiates contemporary art projects: sound/and media art and music.
Since its formation, Ruimtevaart has occupied several very different types of public buildings in The Hague. Since May 2007, Ruimtevaart has had a new location, the former AAZ building at Loosduinseweg 9. The building offers Ruimtevaart ample opportunities to further extend its operations and establish itself as a platform for the visual arts, design, music and cinematography.
IN YOUR LIVING ROOM (IYLR) is an ongoing project founded in 2012 that offers a platform for artists to present their work outside of the usual white cube. Artists from every discipline and approach are welcome to experiment outside of the institution while reaching a wide audience. IYLR’s fast-paced and frequent exhibitions allow space to play, to succeed and to fail.
