Reception Opening: FRIDAY, MARCH 19
Verena Stenke and Andrea Pagnes work together since 2006 as V e s t A n d P a g e mainly in the field of Performance Art, including techniques of installation, video, poetry and sound. They screen their video art and present their performances, lectures and workshops in Europe, Asia, South America and the U.S.
United, they found within Performance Art the perfect common ground to talk about topics of their concern: impermanence, transformation, memory activation and a translative poetry.
They wish to arrive with the spectators to a shift of reality and time, touching most inner human sensors.
