WORM Open City Live: IMACO -2 -Roxette Capriles

The Imaginary Art Collective: The Art of Letting Go

Part 1: “Letting go and decluttering”.

Decluttering could be an art form. We often clean up our mental and physical spaces to find new inspiration, freedom and calm. And in a time of isolation, many of us are surrounded by nothing but the objects we own.

Maybe it’s time to ask: what do these items mean to us?

And what stuff do we choose to keep, or let go?

WORM formed IMACO (The Imaginary Art Collective) to reflect on this topic.

And in our performance space UBIK, a performative estafette (relay race) is taking place.

The artists involved in this relay couldn’t make physical contact, but they could pass on objects to one another. Each artist brings an object, gives a final performance to it, to “say goodbye” and leaves it to the following artist to adopt. The performer becomes the body between the objects.

Each Friday – beginning 12th June – we will release one video performance from the IMACO series. As an audience, you will not see the object until the video performances begin. They will be released via and WORM’s Instagram.

Each performance will be accompanied by an interview explaining the artist’s rationale around the exchange.

ARTIST PERFORMANCE #2: Roxette Capriles: ‘Red Suitcase’.
