Since 2007 we have been working together on projects on location. Since 2014 we have been making videos. Our creations arise from a spontaneous creative process. Our videos are partly inspired by Facebook videos in which the private is being shamelessly exhibited. Also, the speed of our images corresponds to the quick movement through images in Facebook and Youtube videos. As for materials, we recycle them from office or studio buildings, as in today’s conscious recycling society. We search for a contrast between feminine and industrial materials. The theme that we touch upon here is the blurring of boundaries between men’s and women’s issues. We are self-reliant women who like to work with tough material.
MILK collaborates with different artists and focuses on site-specific performances and installations.
At TAF MILK shows several performative installations by Allard Medema, Merel Noorlander, Art van Triest and a special performance by Kirsten Heshusius
December 28, 17.30 / Performance by Kirsten Heshusius
The work of Kirsten Heshusius can be best described as visual poetry which evokes universal thoughts about the existence. Within her performances she looks at the transformation of the body and strong but minimal visual metaphors, often autobiographical. Because the body acts as a mirror, it elicits feelings of recognition through its transformations. Architecture, nature and history of the performance area provide the starting point and put the work in the space.
At the moment Heshusius is developing a new performance about the symbolism of the Dutch flag. She examines her borders, origins and the influence of history on today. During TAF she gives a preview.www.milkamsterdam.com
