Performance by Christine Overvad Hansen & Lea Guldditte Hestelund

On August 27, Danish artists Christine Overvad Hansen & Lea Guldditte Hestelund will perform a thrilling new site-specific performance with the suggestive title Rolling with punches.

Utilizing the normally uncontroversial space of the alleys between gallery booths as their temporary stage, the two artists will create a parallel situation – a displacement of space and place – mimicking the hidden structures and hierarchies of the fair situation.

Rolling with punches, an everyday term that usually means to cope with or adjust to difficult situations as they happen, will feature a special guest appearance by Torben Keller.

When: Saturday 27 August at 2:00pm.
