In February 2016 The Performance – The examining artifact – was presented as an immersive performance in a whole residential area. The audience where committed to keep to certain rules and tasks unable to leave during the time it went on. A close collaboration with the landlords was a crucial part of the staging.

”It´s about being present and curious, playing with risk and trust at the same time mirroring not only the society but also the representation of a political body” – with and by Benedikte Esperi  at Knipplagatan 10, Gothenburg 2016 (MAP)

Benedikte:

In my practice I explore and expose sites that are unique, interesting and challenging especially if they are beyond our comfort zones. My body is the object and the subject in my practice. I´m using it as a tool to experience, interpret and perform the environment by using different medias where movement and filming are main tools.

”inSITEout” is a SOLO site- & body specific performance applied and transformed with a montage of modules. By using this method it´s possible to make a performance hosting my multidisciplinary practice. My body of art is exposed in different ways.

“inSITEout” is a personal, penetrating and sometimes unpredictable experience where the clash of the artistic intention, the specific site and the audience becomes unique every occasion. The audience becomes the object and subject as well while they, during one hour, experience different rooms and moods.

This is not an authored story. Stories that might occur are within the spectator and reveals the multitude of how we experience the world and our role within it.
