Art of Encountering

Art of Encountering - V
Art of Encountering – V

Baleriano performance artist Rommel “Mets” Espinosa is one of the 7 Pinoys who will participate in Art of Encountering – V a Performance Art event scheduled on September 28 to October 19 in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. These seven artists are members of Tupada Action and Media Art (TAMA) collective. In 2009, the 6th Tupada International Visual Performance Festival was held in Baler.

Tupada started in 2002 with ambush performances by artists from diverse disciplines in various public spaces, exposing the masses to the artists’ creative expression where they themselves were on an overpass, in open parks, streets, cafes and alternative art spaces. It has since grown into an art collective holding international art events, establishing connections with local and foreign artists in the spirit of cultural and information exchange and getting together in creating an independent ground for art expressing concerns. TAMA aims to bring performance art in the Philippines further, involving new media and technology as currently available material and equipment to tackle issues, articulating them in today’s language. – See more at: http://batangbaler.net/2009/11/30/bunga-the-6th-tupada-international-visual-performance-festival/

EXCURSUS

“Some thoughts about the derivation of contextual conceptions:

Somatic Culture as interaction of various forms of human existence, coincidental attendances and absences, spacious realities and circumstances, with levels and layers of enliven worlds and realities. A discourse of participatory modifications, human and place, gestus and habitus, dealing
and wheeling, etc. These facts can be seen as parameters within the most different encounters. I call them parameters, because it appears as the most diverse structural difference in various encounters, not touching any cultural inheritance, not the daily cultural representation, nor founded by the cultural presence of a single person, a population, a nation. It is touched by the “idiosyncrasy of the daily” and therefore a temporal longer lasting period of the course of process than the particular representation of the particular national culture. Next to the ethnographic and anthropologic context there is the interest to explore relations of human encounter that embody itself as dynamic change and is to be defined as pre-cultural force. This is examined in various fields and I want to portrait some of them.” – B. Nieslony 2013
