Please join us for the finissage event with Cibelle Cavalli Bastos´ performance ´take these memories away, take my love: it´s free`. The artist invites the audience to take away objects and garments that have been in the artist life for many years. Cavalli Bastos will dissolve their artworks and memories into an evening of storytelling.
Cibelle Cavalli Bastos is occupied by constant self-reflective research into identity construct and modes of deprogramming. During a 6-month Berlin residency at Agora Collective's studio space, the artist turned to auto-observation. Cavalli Bastos has undergone the process of daily confrontation with fragments from a previous life and residues of the self; a strong and intensive self-analytical reflection. Follow the live broadcasts via the @cibellecibelle instagram account for insight into this process. The ongoing non-performance piece #aevtarperform started on January 2nd 2017, the artist’s birthday, and has, of yet, no date for conclusion. #deprogram #unlearn #closedloop #ævtarperform #aevtarperform#avtarperform
This edition of I am Hungry is a co-production between Import Projects e.V. and Agora Collective e.V. and is funded by CAPP - Collaborative Arts Partnership Program.
