Swedish Performance Artist Anna Berndtson at Mill Street Studios
Here are a few iphone snapshots of Swedish Performance Artist Anna Berndtson's show "Reflections and Representations", at Mill Street Studios last week with and alongside a video installation by German artist, Amanda Elena Conrad. These images were taken in between filming the performance for her, as she 1) breastfed a baby doll; 2) abandoned the doll and got on her exercise bike; 3) added taste and smell to the whole experience by making toast and butter for the audience and handing it out. Anna trained with Marina Abramovic, and has been in the Gradcam Performance Research Seminar with me since March. Watch out for her solo show "Monto" at the Lab on Foley Street from September 2nd. I'm telling you - it's going to all be about Performance Art this Autumn. That's something to look forward to.
