Peter - Undead
outdoor test rehearsal at Skeppsholmen Stockholm, July 2018
We are currently continuing the creation of two further Living Documents in collaboration with
Jenni-Elina Von Bagh (F) and Peter Mills (UK/S) that will premiere at MDT Stockholm in May 2019.
The Living Document methodology examines the negative space of "the product". It is the activity and the modus operandi of Peter Mills & Jenni-Elina Von Bagh in relation to the viewer rather than fixing the artist inside one position. The movement of the workflow. The returning questions. The familiar patterns. Objects that stalk the artists. The performance installations are not aiming at becoming documentary portraits, rather zooming in on details of the "bodies of work" put into play with a documentary approach.
Below some excerpts from the ongoing work.
