mollyrainmore.org: ME FOR YOU AND FUN FOR ME

“Stop! Surfaced and Zone Out” Performance Series

 

2023.11.25 – 2023.12.16

Long March Independent Space, Beijing

 

For Autumn and Winter performance series, “Stop! Surfaced and Zone Out” of Long March Independent Project invites three artists(-collectives), Tan Yingjie, Beio, and mollyrainmore.org, to explore their points on how individuals suspended and break the stability. The title refers to a metaphor shared by all three groups of artists — the situation in suspense of each individual — a topic that never seems to go out of date.

 

ME FOR YOU AND FUN FOR ME is a three week long performance installation run by mollyrainmore.org, providing service one person at a time.The performance takes place in a constructed space with a footprint of 40 sq. meters. Upon entering the space, the audience is expected to experience a narrow walk in a claustrophobic space, a short period of confinement, and a guided meditation to relive the incarceration within a controlled lucid dream of institutional space. While waiting for your reserved service, the waiting hall outside the installation features a debut of three short films of the artists. Accompanied by intrusive sound field and dyslectic visual, the films are made of questions, interrogations, satires, and advertorial texts; and all the films are voiced by AI voices of Apple accessibility service (Ava, Karen, Joelle, and Stephanie).

“In the Wilderness” by artist Beio is a three-act performance. Tedious even repetitive metropolitan work and life have alienated the spirit from the body, and further downgraded the body into flesh. Inspired by the novel “No Longer Human”by Japanese author Osamu Dazai, the first scene of “In the Wilderness” by artist Beio discusses how a modern man gets obsessed with the body, disciplines the body and ultimately disengages from the body. The final act is inspired by the story of Inanna’s descent into the underworld in Sumerian religion. It is one of the key text related with Beio’s recent practice, about the descending state of human being, how life have alienated the spirit from the body, and further downgraded the body into flesh.

Together with the production crew and the cast, artist Tan Yingjie directs his first experimental theatre “Don’t Let Things Come to You” with art installations.  From a real story that Tan’s mobile phone was stolen some years ago, six characters involve in the “incident”. With the abstraction of the box installation and the presence of the actors, it recollects and explores how we should look at “escape”.
