Open studio: The Pink Curse


The Pink Curse functions as a performance and emerging installation. It speaks of female friendship in the age of precarious circumstances and aggravated working conditions. The form is shaped in line with shapes and materials such as metal, glass, and plasticine. The materials are positioned in space as to search for the right ratio in artistic composition in relation to the performers and the body. The installation is constituted by sharp objects, female bodies and stretchy pieces of clothing which create the area of what is important and untouchable, but also painful, to a woman. The emerging work’s research process involves conversation; textual exchange of personal stories; production of objects; video, light and sound inside and outside of the fabric; performing with various media; improvisational images. Within the “open studio” form, the authors will explore modes of friendship in relation to the social and individual context. Through open dance, visual art and interactive workshops, new forms of the work, created by working collectively and sharing experience, will be offered. The idea is to include external participants in the existing concept of the work and to present the results of the workshops.
