"ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO LEAVE?"
Selection from the OSTRALE Biennale.
 

Venues: aqb Project Space, aqb AiR Room, Artists’ Containers
 

The exhibition is one of the largest international projects in the history of aqb: featuring works by a selection of artists making their debut in Hungary, telling local and regional, personal and general stories of loud or silent conflicts, animals and people, power and values - often with ironic lessons. In many voices and with great emphasis, it shows the poeticism and ordinariness of artistic activity, the heroisation of work, and the satirical mockery of this heroism, whether it is a feature of the semi-historical or of contemporary manager-capitalism.
 

Exhibiting artists:
Seçkin AYDIN, Viktor BRIM, BRÜCKNER János, Gaby BURCKHARDT, Daniel BURKHARDT, Nadja BUTTENDORF, Mauro CUPPONE, Abdoul-Ganiou DERMANI, Tibor DIETERS, Alexei DMITRIEV, FABRICIUS Anna, FERENCZY Zsolt, Michael HEINDL, Yuki JUNGESBLUT, Nikita KADAN, Neža KNEZ, KOLXOZ, Glorija LIZDE, Larion LOZOVOY, Dean MAASSEN, studio ASYNCHROME, Petra MRŠA, Sali MULLER, NEMES Csaba, Andrea PALÁSTI, Predrag PAVIĆ, Ghenadie POPESCU, Marko RODICS, Farid RASULOV, Sandra ROSENSTIEL, Goran ŠKOFIĆ, Lana STOJIĆEVIĆ, Kamen STOYANOV, SZABÓ Attila, SZOLGA Hajnal, SZOLNOKI József, Stipan TADIĆ, Philipp VALENTA, Arturas VALIAUGA, Vangjush VELLAHU, Xueying WANG, Yinglin ZHOU

Venue: building A, 4th floor (room A26)
 

Registration:
https://forms.gle/XmxR85rvorEy3YnW6
 

To attend the performance, registration is required. Max. 20 people.

 

in_form is a movement-based performance that uses amplified breathing sounds and stays on the very edge of visibility. It asks you to listen. How informative a simple breath can be?

The figure of the performance stays in the constant flux of becoming. He senses and picks up various modalities of beings and states from inner and outer spaces. Transformation happens on it’s own accordance as it is being consciously manipulated as well. On the edge of visibility, he examines the contours of understanding, he stays in potentiality. Yet, he is only a shadow of himself.

in_form is the 1st episode of the performance series PERSONAL TRAINER. The series aims to explore the notion of progress on the personal level. It invites the audience to map their reasons and tendencies of becoming different, more or advanced. What are the desires and motivations to be better, to be fitter, to grow, to evolve?

Sabw - Ruminative Flooding (Play Dead Inside)
 

Venue: Building A, 2nd floor - Sepia Sound Studio
 

Facebook event:
https://www.facebook.com/events/287690640243476
 

Uninterrupted contemplation, inaudible closure, ethereal mood, stirring emotions: rumination - or the expression and mapping of emergence from this, in a cinematic, atmospheric music environment - at times through repetitive themes and 'rounded', unidentifiable sounds. This is the ruminative flooding.
