KITTY KAMP — Objects for a Performance 

KITTY KAMP (°1987, NL) lives and works in Brussels, www.cargocollective.com/ kittykamp

 

Predominantly working with video, Kitty Kamp draws upon the history of cinema, art and performance. With a keen interest in writing, she pursues a critical approach of her role as an artist and the situation of contemporary art. Moreover, she enjoys appropriating the absurdities of the world through various subjects of interest and uses techniques borrowed from popular culture. Her focus lies on the mystification that arises from demystification and processes of making.

For The Living Room XL Kitty Kamp created a performance including film, sound, installation and text. The lecture performance imitated the form of a demonstration, often used as presentation of new products on market places. In the same time it was a manual for the production of her artworks. Her text both read as comment on her own actions as well as an explanation.

The Living Room XL was a group exhibition in the form of a happening. Sixteen artists were invited to create new work, culminating in fourteen unique 30-minute interventions questioning city life, the border between public and private space and the influences of global politics. The Living Room XL is part of AIR Traces: the experimental archive of AIR Antwerpen’s activities.

THE LIVING ROOM XL is an initiative of AIR antwerpen in collaboration with Studio Start and Brandt vzw, with financial support from Stad Antwerpen, Provincie Antwerpen and the Flemish Community. This website and its content is courtesy of the artists and AIR Antwerpen 2017. Photos © 2017 Alena Schmick, film © 2017 Ilke De Vries, design by Indianen
