"Call for Artists: European Site-Specific Live Arts"
2002-04-17 until 2002-05-30
Luna Nera
London, , UK United Kingdom

Luna Nera is looking for artists and art groups involved in site specific performance and installation (see criteria bellow), who would be interested in being featured in a database/research. If you would like to submit your work for feature in the project or if you know someone who does (please note that the work must fit all of the 4 criteria), please contact Luna Nera at the below address.

The finished product will take the form of a videotape and a written booklet. The tape will contain a compilation of show reels from independent / alternative artists, arts groups and collectives. An accompanying booklet will consist of interviews with performers and installation artists and will explore their objectives, concerns, expectations, needs and future projects, as well as their view on theoretical issues. It will also provide a short C.V. and contact details (in order to act a database as well as an analysis). A theoretical analysis of the European site-specific Live Arts scene will also feature at the beginning of the booklet.

We are looking for practitioners who are concerned with all of the following concepts:

1. Time: temporary = pieces of work which are designed for a specific exhibition / event and which becomes irrelevant then after. By this I mean, which cannot be used in exactly the same format for any other occasion. Whether in terms of content or form.

2. Mixed media / multi-disciplinary: using more than one medium or merging different techniques / genres and / or inventing new ones.

3. Personal work: conceived by the artists themselves, as opposed to traditional theatre and work which is commissioned public / community art (i.e.: commissioned work for a school, hospital, council where the artists is required to act as facilitator / social worker as well as to create a piece of work).

4. Space: work, which is specific to the site. Drawing from the history of a site, its architecture, its contents, its past use, the social/ economical impact of the loss of its prime activity on the surrounding community.

Submissions: For inclusion on the show reel: send mini-DV (preferred) or VHS show reel of work. Arts groups (max.) 10 min. / individual (max.) 3 min. + name of groups & participants.

For inclusion in the interview section: send SAE / e-mail to receive a list of questions. For inclusion in the database: send SAE / e-mail to receive more details.
