On Thursday 22nd January 2015, in the queue at the weekly Art Meeting point, 
the second exhibition of 2015 from Tiger Spot: "Equality" by Roberta Orlando
The exhibition is part of her research about discrimination on sexual orientation and gender identity.

 Between social, cultural, environmental and political conditions, Orlando investigates the significance and social necessity to label sexual orientation, inviting the viewer to linger on love as it is, without any social conditioning.

  For years the artist is fighting for the recognition of LGBTI rights denied in Italy and many countries around the world. Furthermore there is a considerable controversy in our country, where not only civil unions are not allowed between people of the same sex, but we live in a state of almost total absence of laws against homophobia.

  Audiovisual producer and artist, specially in installative and performative contemporary art, Roberta works with photography, video and live media between Europe and United States.

The documentation of this artistic path continues to be presented in the world, receiving considerable attention and 
acclaim to those issues that are part of human rights before everything else.

Inaugurerà giovedì 22 gennaio in coda all’Art Meeting point settimanale la seconda mostra del 2015 targata Tiger Spot: “Equality” di Roberta Orlando. La mostra raccoglie parte della ricerca intrapresa dall’artista 

in merito alla discriminazione per l'orientamento sessuale e l'identità̀ di genere.

Da sempre impegnata in tematiche sociali, culturali, ambientali e politiche, la Orlando indaga attraverso il suo lavoro 
sul significato e la necessità della società di etichettare l’orientamento sessuale delle persone, invitando lo spettatore 
a soffermarsi sull’amore in quanto tale, slegato da ogni condizionamento sociale. 

L‘artista lotta da anni per il riconoscimento dei diritti negati in Italia e in molti paesi del mondo alle persone LGBTI, 
tema particolarmente controverso nel nostro paese, dove non solo non è consentita l’unione civile tra persone dello stesso sesso, ma viviamo in una condizione di quasi totale assenza di norme in materia di contrasto all’omofobia. 
 
Produttrice e artista audiovisiva, soprattutto nell’ambito installativo e performativo dell’arte contemporanea, 
Roberta lavora con la fotografia, video e live media tra Europa e Stati Uniti.

La documentazione di questo percorso artistico continua ad essere presentata in tutto il mondo, ricevendo 
notevoli attenzioni e consensi verso quelle tematiche che, prima di ogni altra cosa, sono parte dei diritti umani.

USB-SHUFFLE-SHOW

January 16th - 18th 2015
Institut für Alles Mögliche, Berlin, DE


                                                                                                                       BOF, video, 2014

 How many megabytes does an artpiece consist of? 
How much “free space“ does a USB-device provide? Is a USB-stick a place of culture? 
Is it an exhibition space? Are multiple usb-sticks an exhibition - or even an art fair?

These are only some of the questions that this format of the „USB-SHUFFLE-SHOW“ is pointing out. 
The focus is on exploring wether the digital space in pocket format is usable as a space for arts and culture and 
if so how this might look like. Aside from trying to rethink the artistic space, the show aims to provoke questions 
concerning copyrights, curatorial gestures and participation. It is meant to enable a dialogue in which boundaries between the artistic work, the curatorial practice and the role of the beholder is shifted and can be redefined.

Aus wie vielen Megabytes besteht ein Kunstwerk? Wie viel (Frei-) Raum bietet ein USB-Stick? 
Ist ein USB-Stick ein Kulturort? Oder vielleicht ein Ausstellungsraum? 
Sind mehrere USB-Sticks eine Ausstellung? Oder sogar eine Kunstmesse?

Diesen und weiteren Fragen widmet sich das Format "THE-USB-SHUFFLE-SHOW". 
Es soll untersucht werden, inwieweit sich der digitale Raum im Hosentaschenformat 
als ein Ort für Kunst und Kultur eignet. Im Fokus der Veranstaltungen stehen neben dem Versuch 
den künstlerischen Handlungsraum neu zu denken auch Fragen nach Urheberschaft, 
Einzigartigkeit und Interaktivität des Werkes sowie der kuratorischen Geste.


BOF will be shown at USB-SHUFFLE-SHOW.

Kletterei


Kletterei
photography, 2015






Above or underneath. Through fire or water.
A place where to climb on floating peaks.
As thin as hair. No rumors or signs.
Does it burn? Does it freeze?
It still moves on.

Kletterei is a composition of frames and surfaces which run 
between analog and digital with a detail to ruined structures.

Every simple day [preview]


Every simple day
photography, 2014




The documentation of a brief moment between two women.
Work, travel, activism and life.

The semplicity of their relationship like everybody else in their uniqueness.
Strengths and brittleness of two minds and bodies.
From a first research of balance to the fusion of shapes without recognition.

A portrait of love and nothing else.

Every simple day is the series made with the collaboration of
Croatian activists Karla Horvat Crnogaj and Milena Zajović.

A Flight of Steps on The Homocaust


A Flight of Steps on The Homocaust
performance, 4 days, 2-3h each session, 2014


 I put this on your chest.
When you go upstairs, just throw it away.
You decide the moment, you decide the place.  

 More than 1 thousand triangles.
Pink. Black.

A though about homocaust and all the people who die 
 because of their sexual orientation and gender identity. 

 








Thank you for your participation.
Thank you for your thoughts and words.


Series from the Venice Performance Art Week.

Venice International Performance Art Week




13 - 20 December
Palazzo Mora, Venice, IT

 Following the first edition “Hybrid Body – Poetic Body” that took place in December 2012 at Palazzo Bembo, the 2nd VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK will take place at Palazzo Mora in Venice from 13th to 20th December 2014 under the focus "Ritual Body - Political Body".

The live art exhibition project dedicated to contemporary performance art will showcase in its second edition works of over 50 international performance artists from around the globe, some of which are presented in cooperation with cultural institutions and foundations. Pioneers of this art discipline will exhibit alongside established and emerging artists, reflecting influences and current tendencies in the field.

The project consists of a vibrant program of live performances, installations, photographic and video documentation, conferences, daily round tables talks, a Study Room, a Movie Room and meetings with the participating artists, researchers and curators.

For the second edition with the focus “Ritual Body - Political Body” the VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK 2014 aims to investigate a wide range of concepts such as: art as a space for civil negotiation where human ethical values are the core; interconnectivity; political confrontation; utopia; ecological issues; social and individual conflicts and responsibilities, and how the self relates to them, at the same time concentrating on the fact that the presence of the human beings in this world is always more than a temporary condition.

The communication that can be triggered between artists and the audience is an essential element. The topics addressed during the week will relate to the need to look at social relations and the lives of individuals with greater care. 

Due to the specificity of the theme of this second edition “Ritual Body - Political Body”, the live performances and works on display will also seek to provide reflection and further considerations on how to find meaningful mechanisms to foster positive change through contemporary art and culture in a clearly vital way.

The VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK wishes to enrich the highly renowned art scene in Venice with the audacious art form of performance art.

Curated by VestAndPage and organized in collaboration with Studio Contemporaneo, Venice Open Gates, Weexhibit and Global Art Affairs Foundation, which hosts the event in its prestigious premises at Palazzo Mora on Strada Nova.

ART WEEK BLOG updated daily during the week with features, interviews and reviews on veniceperformanceart.tumblr.com.

Lo Stato Inadeguato


Lo Stato Inadeguato
- The Inadequate State -
photography, 2014 


 Fotografia di una generazione abbandonata e derubata, di cui l'autrice stessa è parte pulsante.
Un forte grido all'Italia e all'Europa per un lavoro che non esiste. 

La crisi economica che uccide silenziosamente e un paese da cui migliaia di giovani stanno scappando. 
Le condizioni lavorative e sociali di una generazione costretta a stare davanti ad un monitor giorno e notte. 
Chi per cercare lavoro, chi per continuare a lavorare e chi per sentire quello che manca. 

Il persistente stato di inadeguatezza verso tutto ciò in cui non si può essere integrati e 
il modo in cui vengono sviscerati i rapporti sociali. 
L'apice di una falsità che prende per poi lasciare, come un mattatoio danzante dove tutti siamo invitati a ballare.

 ---

A photograph of an abandoned and robbed generation which is the same of the author.
A strong shout to Italy and Europe because of a non existent work. 

 An economic crisis that silently kills and a country where thousands of young people are leaving. 
The labour and social conditions of a generation which is obligated to stay in front of a monitor, day and night. 
Whom are looking for a job, whom are continuing to work and whom are feeling what they miss. 

The persistent state of inadequacy where you can't be integrated and how relationships are disemboweled. 
The top of falsehood which first takes and then leaves, as a dancing abattoir where everyone of us is invited to dance in.

Out of Love with Love



November 21st - December 6th
h. 3 - 8pm
Kleiner Salon, Berlin, DE


Complement of Gender, 2013


Under the mentorship of gender specialist Lorena Juan Gutiérrez, Angela Kaisers and 
Laura G. Jones explore the personal observations, repetitions, and variables that describe the dynamics of 
measuring romantic love by comparison with either external standards or individual experiences. 
In a non prescriptive way, the artists address an unstable metric system created by 
a set of elements through which they analyze their emotions and relationships. 
The questions risen by this process result in a deconstruction of romantic ideals imposed by capitalist society.





As we use to be is shown with Coven Berlin.
