16 May online pedagogy | performance workshop with Isil Sol Vil x Marina Barsy Janer //
Performance art is an experiential, live and mutant act / art. In this encounter we will feel what is the subversive love and extreme care; to take care of ourselves, to be cared for and be caretakers. To create a body of affections, knowledge and new sensibilities. Knowing ourselves, accepting ourselves, subverting the canons imposed and thereby being rebellious bodies activated towards new horizons that are already visible.
The creative process will emerge from this exploration of empowerment with our bodies, energies, and imaginations, calling upon alternative forms of connection and relationship. Through exploration proposals, we will go deep into our Selves to relearn from our bodies-memories. We will work through exercises of eXtreme listening, identifying and reconstructing the memory of the body as a political-affective geography. In this way we can insert ourselves more experientially into this living practice.
Tools will be given to develop performances using objects and working with the space (site-specific). Collective and individual performances will be created, questioning this dichotomy. The camera will be used as a performance entity exploring the formats of the live action, photo performance and video performance.

Isil Sol Vil x Marina Barsy Janer
are visual and performance artists, curators, researchers and pedagogues. Directors of the space for artistic investigation and radical pedagogy MATERIC.ORG and curators of EMPREMTA international performance festival and Mar de Islas performance encounter of the Caribbean. They begin their joint work in 2015 following a philosophy of Subversive Love and eXtreme Care. They have presented work in Europe and the Americas in festivals, museums and galleries such as Viva! ArtAction (Montreal), Tempting Failure (London), Centro de Cultura Contemporánea de Barcelona (Barcelona), Arts Santa Mònica (Barcelona), Casa Viva (Mexico City), Organ of Critical Arts-OKK (Berlin), FNAF (Prague) and FIAP (Martinique), among others. Their work is part of the archive of the Live Art Development Agency (London) and the collection of the Museu de l’Empordà (Figueres). They have held performance courses and workshops at the University of Puerto Rico, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Puerto Rico, Escola Massana Centre d’Art i Disseny, THE University of Barcelona and MATERIC.ORG.
Their artistic practice takes the corporeal mimesis to the eXtreme, in a specific space and in a given environment. They explore alternative sensitivities that challenge the imposed historical chronologies while suppressing the male/ female dichotomy. Their pieces are framed by the need to establish a single connection and body rhythm of pure listening. They are not two bodies, they are not two artists; they are the body in a space, in a time and in a presence. Their point of union, as vanishing point, is a constant pulsation where the plural presence of the body, the border destruction and the decolonisation of the mind-body is an act of rebellion and subversion.
