The neoliberal ideology that governs our society is marked by a striving for success. But this generates more losers than winners. These losers are often made invisible, or make themselves invisible. In Ne mosquito pas, performance artists question their own relationship to success and failure by working with elements that they themselves perceive as ‘failures’ within their practice.
They explore ideas that never made it into a performance. The ‘deleted scenes’, in the broad sense of the term, from their previous works form the point of departure for a brief (solo) performance in which they conjure up a negative (in)appropriate ‘second hand’ version of their artistic practice, and a categoric distinction between good and bad taste is declared useless. Lead by the motto, « If you don’t succeed at first failure may be your style » (Quentin Crisp).
For more than five years, a group of artists have been creating solos around failure, and now, during a marathon, you get the chance to see them all, non-stop, one after the other! On Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 September, they will hijack Decoratelier all night long and perform the more than 50 (!) solo’s they’ve created over the past years.
The marathon will be presented during MAKING TIME, a project by Decoratelier: https://somethingatdecoratelier.brussels/
