Artists in this exhibition: Anna Berndtson, Irina Runge, TallBlondLadies


Artists Space is pleased to present TBL (TallBlondLadies), a collaborative project between the artists Anna Berndtson (Sweden/Germany) and Irina Runge (Germany). This exhibition marks the third installment of the durational performance series When Time Becomes Form curated by Marina Abramovic. The duo will present Solidly Grounded, a collection of three works, performed over five days for five hours per day, in Artists Space’s main galleries.

TBL inverts female stereotypes through the composition of absurd and unexpected performative gestures, often incorporating a range of accoutrement from high-end fashion to sports gear. Their works present diametrically opposed concepts; beauty and grace are juxtaposed and diminished through brute action and athleticism, tacitly disrupting and challenging gender-based categorizations.

The three pieces to be included, Big Dip, Ascendant Landing, and Potential Fertility Rite, are distinct yet share the recurrent core elements of sound, rhythm, and form embodied through purposeful movement. The symbols of the Celtic knot, the line, and the Lemniscate (eternity sign) provide the foundation for each of their performances, allowing for a poetic exploration of female tropes through notions of timelessness and the everyday.

*PLEASE NOTE: From Dec. 18-21, Artists Space will be open from 5-10 p.m.; on Dec. 22 the gallery will be open from 12noon-5 p.m.

Additional support for TallBlondLadies: Solidly Grounded has been provided by Ledragomma (www.ledragomma.com)
