Kira O’Reilly – naked, apart from the appearance of black leather gloves,contorts her body to make it look like she is falling down the stairs. The strength and physical ability she needs in order to do this so gracefully leaves you mesmerised. Every movement and details of the fall has been carefully considered, to create the sense that this is a slow motion snap shot of a rel fall. Whats more impressive is that she does this for four hours, twice a day!
The undisputed highpoint of the evening is Fedor Pavlov-Andreevich’s “glory hole”.
With only his mouth visible, members of the audience are encouraged to approach him to feed him food and water and brush his teeth; an interesting, if slightly unsettling experience.Full list of featured artists; Marina Abramović, Ivan Civic, Nikhil Chopra, Amanda Coogan, Marie Cool Fabio Balducci, Yingmei Duan, Eunhye Hwang, Jamie Isenstein, Terence Koh, Alastair MacLennan, Kira O’Reilly, Fedor Pavlov-Andreevich, Melati Suryodarmo and Nico Vascellari. http://www.fpavlovandreevich.com/ http://www.kiraoreilly.com/blog/
