Language-based artist Antrianna Moutoula (NL/GR) will visit Leeds for a three-week residency around the development of a new performance exploring the idea of academic citations as bricks.
Aiming to expand her research on autotheory and citational practices, she will work with a group of women postgraduate students at Leeds Arts University. Together they will experiment with the multivocal aspect of the performance practice that the artist calls nonstop languaging. In her until-now-mostly-solo practice she traces her thoughts through language by talking and writing nonstop, aiming to renegotiate the confinements of knowledge production within artistic academic discourse.
The residency will end with a performance where the audience is invited to dive into the autotheoretical language, and navigate the overload of ephemeral linearities, words, thoughts, and citations that appear when nonstop languaging is performed by a multivocal constellation such as a group, a flock, a choir, or perhaps a chorus.
This event is supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and Leeds 2023.
