• At Waters Edge - Six chairs

Rolfe, Nigel, 2015, Show, Exhibition or Event, At Waters Edge - Six chairs

Abstract or Description:

Six chairs by Nigel Rolfe, performance duration - 6 hours.
From the center of the Island to carry each white chair to the water's edge. The chair facing outwards looking to distant horizons, to set fire and to burn as if a chair beacon, a marker of sitting. The residue then left as part burnt chair remains. The island circumference bisected so that each chair is equidistant from each other, six chairs in total at water edge.

‘Venø Gård KUNST‘ is a two day International performance art festival, that invites Norwegian and International artists to Selje Kommune on the sublime island Venøy close to Stadlandet, which is the most westerly mainland point of Norway.
With art one can Kindle, Unite, Nurture and Stimulate Thought, exploring new ways of communication and interaction away from mainstream culture. Performance art is a good tool to strive for this, as it often takes risks by visiting new grounds and not conforming to preconceived ideas. Art events in rural districts help the democratisation and decentralisation of art in turn making the districts more attractive for the new generation.
