Hooray! New work for Unnoticed Art Festival

I’m happy to announce I’ll be making a new work for the Unnoticed Art Festival.

Unfortunately for you my dear, this will remain secret until the festival has taken place.

 

Here’s some more info about the festival:

The Unnoticed Art Festival returns for a second edition this summer, following the first Unnoticed Art Festival in 2014 and the subsequent publication of the book Unnoticed Art.

On June 24/25 the Unnoticed Art Festival will take place in an undisclosed city in the Netherlands. 

Hundreds of artists worldwide have responded to an Open Call for performance concepts. From these submissions, a performance program has been compiled by a committee of five artists. The Unnoticed Art performances are to be realized in the public space, on the street, with no explanation and with no fore-warning. The objective is to go by unnoticed. Taking place in everyday settings, these performances involve hiding the unusual within the usual. Passersby may perceive these actions, but will not recognize them as performance art. 

A group of thirty participants will perform the Festival’s program. These participants need not be artists. No performance experience is required. All that matters is an interest in the nature of the festival, and a willingness to experiment. These participants have a double role: they will perform the selected works whilst simultaneously acting as the only audience to the event. Since the festival is not announced, these participants are the only ones ‘in the know’ – hence, they are the only audience that is aware of being an audience. 

A book will be compiled following the second edition of the Festival. This book will include all the concepts from the program, in addition to presenting the personal experiences of all the participants, as both actors and audience. 

The program of this year will include works of:

Unnoticed Art Festival – book

002-klein001-klein003-klein

Yesterday I received a copy of the book Unnoticed Art, featuring an essay by Frans van Lent, and many descriptions of the performances performed at the festival itself.

The IT series of performances where part of the festival as well. In the book you can read a brief description on how to perform the work, and the written down experiences of two performers.

I really like the way the title is printed onto the cover of the book, as you can see in the pictures above.

Go to the >Unnoticed Art Festival website< to order a copy of the book.
