The role of the action: ephemeral versus permanent and vice versa
The experience of an action (artistic or otherwise) may linger in our memory forever (we could say ‘eternally’), linking with our thinking, whereas many roles formulated to last vanish, consumed by time, dust, mould and the tiny creatures that feed on them.
Otherwise life is ACTION (so says Arnau Puig) and this, in the form of art, demands its ‘role’ with the presence, the practice, but also, paradoxically, through some physical support that opens the mental index of things that have been experienced, for example a poster, which is in part an announcement and in part an artwork.
The La Capella 2018 performers have their posters, which are fantastic and point us to their actions, which you have already seen (or not), but also to other connected, related ideas, which will come to the aid of your memory and imagination. You’ll be able to touch it with your hands! Wednesday 30 May at La Capella.
