LIQUID LOFT (AT)

Shiny, shiny ... (Imploding Portraits Inevitable)

Shiny, shiny... is the first part of the Imploding Portraits Inevitable series of performances (followed by False Colored Eyes and Candy’s Camouflage), which confronts  the current media-guided self-optimization with its own history's avatar. Celebrities, drag queens, models, critics, curators, art-collectors, or poets: they all laid their very selves bare in 3 minute close- ups. Behind the camera back then was Andy Warhol, shooting portraits of their most intimate moments.

In Shiny, shiny... post-processed wraiths from the Factory produce their own screen tests in a game of deceptions, a puzzle of glaring full-totals and extreme close-ups. Light and shadow appear to defend their bullheaded independence to the sound of a Velvet Underground feedback that's coupled to the now, while far at back you can hear faint voices from Chelsea Girls. Warhol's Exploding Plastic Inevitable have turned into an imploding anti-spectacle.

Liquid Loft was founded in 2005 by choreographer Chris Haring together with musician Andreas Berger, dancer Stephanie Cumming and dramaturgue Thomas Jelinek. In their performances and installations, Liquid Loft interconnect contemporary dance directly with other forms of contemporary art, in order to create a cohesive all-embracing piece of art.
Their idiosyncratic visual and formal language, their distinctive acoustic stage-sets and professional dance production have earned Liquid Loft international recognition and awards like the Golden Lion for Best Performance at the 2007 Biennale in Venice.
