Performance

Date & Time

29 Aug 15:00 – 15:30

Venue

Mads Nørgaard – Copenhagen

New Noveta’s practice combines elements including sound, props and costume design and production, installation building and live body action. Their works are often site-specific and never repeated. For Rose Rot the duo will embody the window of Mads Nørgaard – Copenhagen, continuing their exploration of anxiety and social conformity through ritualistic gestures and semi-choreographed patterns of movement and acceleration. The scene installed in the window prior to the performance with its heavy, sagging curtains and carnivorous plants will be actioned upon New Noveta’s arrival.

Keira Fox (UK) and Ellen Freed (SE) have collaborated as New Noveta since 2012, and exhibited extensively internationally since.

The installation by New Noveta is part of the pop-up exhibition Window shopper, which presents works by artists who all engage in fashion as part of their artistic practice. The exhibition takes place in some of the most characteristic fashion stores across Copenhagen exploring the mutual fascination and admiration between art and fashion.

Window shopper is developed in collaboration with CHART and artist Esben Weile Kjær, departing from the project ‘Modeskolen’ initiated by Hannah Heilmann, Associate Professor at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts.
