WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE?
WHAT IS THIS PLACE?


A non-place IRL & IRTime, mediated across online space
for practice & process & works of
          pro-formance

works of 
         pro-formance
         pro-formance doesn’t necessitate an audience
         pro-formance is the outcome of action-spurred growth
                 occurring through attentiveness to improvisatory impulse, involuntary action & subconscious drives                                                                                                action-spurred growth creates bodies of work & systems of thought
When specific needs intersect with process, the outcome, or the occurence is a pro-formance

works of 
         pro-formance
                                as in production & performance
                                revealing, refining & reifying

  the performance-based elements of artistic & creative | practice & production
                                                             artistic & creative | practice & production informed by athletic, somatic & healing processes



What is happening here?
What happened?

a space    that       is  
                      h a p  p   e    n   i    n     g





In somatic healing we speak of the occurrence,

                                                                           the event

                            WHAT HAPPENED?  SOMETHING HAPPENED

meaning something has taken place,
something is taking place                                                                                                                     internally

to make space & allow for cycles, motions & e-motion to reach completion


The role of fiction,

                                                                a space co-created
                                                                                               by semi-fictionalisations of artists and practitioners.            


Creating an architecture

                              of the self                  


         

as in brutalist architecture,


a ground for the conditions of becoming


    Espace Brutale exposes the frayed edges between media architecture, art-making, and Self-construction
    spotlit by a harsh light that illuminates the brutality of change and evolution





ARTIST AS SHAMAN


Espace Brutale presents & re/presents the often dual/multiple role of artists as teachers, healers, guides & makers of culture
                      through work that is event-based, transitory, site-specific, private & ephemeral
we highlight a societal need for art & artists to practice & produce in realms outside the commodified art system





Engaging collective bodies through online platforms and physical production,

EB complicates viewer/voyeur-ship,
                                                        collapsing the boundary between audience, public and invested participant,
                                       & blurring forms of agency, spectatorship & participation


using sound, song, the oral tradition & transitoriness, dance, immateriality & other forms of physical textuality


Poesis as in poetry and
                                                also poiesis 


as in bringing something into being
Exploring thematic po/i/esis as curatorial practice
                                                                                                                     The current cycle is of                                  THE NIGHT
