ONONO is pleased to present a one night event containing performance and installation by Tarik Speelman and Theresa Münz, with scenography by Ash Kilmartin.
The work will explore ideas of personal formation: of becoming, of being, of listening and of talking to one another.
Friday 26 April, 19.00 – 21.00
From an eagerness of endlessly researching every topic that had my interest, generating a lot of theoretical knowledge, it is now time to put stuff out into the world. And that’s actually the scariest thing for me, I have to let go of barriers taught to me during my upbringing. Studying visual arts (photography / film making / drawing) and volunteering work gave me time to practice and hone my crafts. From being the introvert and spending hours of time alone in the photo studio creating stop motion videos, I began to explore my extroverted tendencies through organizing events, giving others a stage to shine or people the option to get creative themselves. When co-organizing Zine Club events at WORM/Pirate Bay, I fell in love with making Zines. Personal Zines especially feel like a medium that fits me: putting writings and drawings together intuitively. Movement (dance) and music production are other main threads nowadays. Storytelling through introspection.
Starting from a painting background I became tired of the canvas as a medium. I discovered that it creates great pleasure to craft with materials that I find on the streets and in the trash. The unpredictable nature of trash and the transformation into characters allows me to rethink the intention of a material. It challenges me to come up with new and inexperienced visuals. The characters that come out can be seen as alter egos of myself or spirit animals that personify a facet of my mind. In different contexts, they are struggling with the profundity of life and triviality of existence. They don't try to find solutions. They are the solutions.
