Intimate Collaborations: The Bare Body of Performance in the UK and Russia – 6th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art 2015

Intimate Collaborations explores the «intimate» relationship between performance and photography, the action and the image. Intimate Collaborations invites the viewer to an «intimate» encounter with Manuel Vason’s artistic practice along with new work specifically commissioned for this exhibition.

In Vason’s Intimate Collaborations with other artists, a performance work is either restaged anew or uniquely developed, specifically for his camera. These projects differ in principle from conventional documentation of performance in that Vason is always the sole witness to the singular live event, which also takes place in a non-theatrical space of the artists« choosing. Each collaboration is predicated on a series of mutual concerns: a challenge to the relationship between performance and the photographic document; a fascination with the body; and the exploration of new forms of collaborative practice.
