Ariadne Randall – here is always vanishing

Ariadne Randall – here is always vanishing

The venue is a bar, any bar, the concept of a bar. Time passes, a band breaks up, wives dance with wives, rats eat cats. There’s a knife fight, a shark tank, a country song, and the blind prophet Tiresias from Greek mythology. Artist Ariadne Randall poses many questions in here is always vanishing, her very first performance work, including this one: What’s the appropriate cocktail for the end of the world?

Ariadne Randall is a composer, poet, and artist. Her first performance piece here is always vanishing is a work in progress.

Nina Sandino & Ragnheiður Erla Björnsdóttir  – The 4th Revolution

Every year over 100 billion garments of clothing are being produced globally. Most of these pieces end up in charity shops or dump sites in the global south. Every second, the equivalent of one garbage truck of textiles is landfilled or burned. With this piece Nina Sandino and Ragnheiður Erla Björnsdóttir explore the use of different technologies in the clothing production: handmade work vs the sewing machine vs virtual reality. The 4th Revolution is about the feminine and ancestral: all the knowledge passed from one generation to another generation of women. It's about intimacy, a way to (re)connect in order to care and protect.

Nina Sandino was born in the Caribbean and raised in Nicaragua. Following her studies of architecture, she went on to study contemporary dance at the Music and Arts University of Vienna. Her work as a performer moves between art and activism.

Ragnheiður Erla Björnsdóttir is an Icelandic composer, poet, and voice artist. She lives and works in Vienna.

 

On HUGGY BEARS and the Handle with care series:

HUGGY BEARS is a support platform by artists for artists, established by Caroline Madl and Philippe Riéra. It offers mentoring in various areas to up-and-coming artists to support them in developing their work. Huggy Bears take the selected junior artists under their wing for seven months, during which time they get a studio space, workshops, artistic and organisational support, networking opportunities, public showings, and feedback whenever they need it. In the end, a professional premiere is facilitated under professional conditions. This year’s Huggy Bears artists present samples of their pieces as part of brut’s Handle with care series.

brut’s Handle with care series grants sneak peeks into processes of artistic creation, experimenting with new formats and creating spaces for talking and the exchanging of views. Artists get the chance to try out parts of their work in front of a small audience, to receive feedback, and to turn spectators into accomplices.
