Georgia Sagri. Performance at Whitney Biennial 2012

At the 2012 Whitney Biennial, the artist Georgia Sagri presents an ongoing installation / performance titled Travailler Je ne travaille pas (working the no work). VernissageTV documented part of Georgia Sagri’s performance on the occasion of the Biennial’s VIP opening on February 28, 2012.

Georgia Sagri presents an ongoing installation/performance in which she engages a variety of media-distribution methods, such as film and video, audio recording, and print publishing. With the goal of producing of a book, Sagri will invite philosophers, activists and organizers, artists, and laborers to shape, through conversations and activities, the concept of “Working The No Work.” Reflecting especially on the radical shifts in political and social life of the present and recent past, the texts generated will feed back into the project as a whole, with Sagri playing the role of designer/editor/illustrator in unexpected ways.” (The Whitney Museum of American Art).

Georgia Sagri was born in 1979 in Athens, Greece. Sagri lives and works in New York.

Dawn Kasper: Performance at Whitney Biennial 2012

This year’s Whitney Biennial has a strong focus on performance. One of the performances that took place on the VIP opening on February 28, 2012 at the Whitney Museum of American Art was titled This Could Be Something If I Let It by Dawn Kasper with the support of the band Lady Noise (Kelly Coats, Helga Fassonaki, Kathleen Kim, Gabie Strong). Additional performances take place on May 4 and 25, at 7 pm.

For her participation in the 2012 Whitney Biennial, Los Angeles-based artist Dawn Kasper has set up a studio in one of the museum’s spaces. The room is filled the personal belongings of the artist, including a tennis racket that spins on a motor, a bed, musical instruments, tv sets with Buster Keaton films running on it, and many things more. Dawn Kasper doesn’t sleep at the gallery, but during the opening hours of the museum she talks with visitors, performs music and creates other works. This installation or “living sculpture” as it is also called by the museum, is part of her ongoing “Nomadic Studio Practice Experiment”. Dawn Kasper lives and works in Los Angeles. Recently, she participated in the Trespass Parade in downtown Los Angeles.
