About

Annika Ström introduces short definitions to the public domain of an art encounter in the manner in which her performances emerge and appear as singular acts. ‘Six Lovely People’ is an exhibition that activates fig-2 as a space of encounter, where six actors and actresses act in a lovely manner. Through highlighting a concept, in this case loveliness, as a value to be experienced and explored Ström positions language and human expression as initiators of behavioural science that stimulate physical and mental engagement promoting an awareness of body and mind. Akin to Nauman’s Body Pressure, 1974 piece, Ström’s ‘Six Lovely People’ use instructions for the creation of ideas to be exhibited as verbal directions. Ström works with concepts in a playful manner in a way in which numbers and words collide to produce meaning and value in her depictions of scenarios. Her performances produce mise-en-scènes that are improvised by the actors and actresses and concentrate on a singular act or a feeling, such as ‘Ten Embarrassed Men’ which was commissioned for Frieze Projects in 2010.

Performances:
Monday 9 Mar, 6 – 8 pm
Thursday 12 Mar, 6 – 8 pm
Saturday 14 Mar, 4 – 6 pm
