Together with the participants, a transdisciplinary group of artists will make and host a collective space of experimentation and sharing in the MQ Hofstallung. In the evening, this space will open its doors for the general public to join the unstable composition of performance, dance, construction, textile and visual arts. This Field Project is part of the 12 days project Unstable Nights in the frame of the cooperation between ImPulsTanz and mumok in the context of the exhibition Pattern and Decoration.
ARTISTBIO: Vladimir Miller
Vladimir Miller works as an artist, researcher, scenographer and dramaturge. His practice aims at re-negotiating habitual modes of spatial production by using fragility as a building principle. He uses collective construction- and building processes to investigate ideologies of labour and territory within ad-hoc groups and institutional environments. In his latest projects he works with the materiality of fluids to challenge ideas of stability embedded within the design of spaces of cultural production. Vladimir Miller has been a frequent collaborator with the choreographers Philipp Gehmacher and Meg Stuart and the scenographer Jozef Wouters, with whom he co-created a number of performances and video installations. In 2018-19 he will be dramaturge in residence at Decoratelier/Josef Wouters. Vladimir Miller is co-curator of the postgraduate artistic research institute a.pass, Brussels and a PhD in Practice candidate at the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna. In 2013 Miller was Fellow at Institut für Raumexperimente, Berlin and in 2015 Fellow at Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart. Vladimir Miller has been guest lecturer at the University of Hamburg and at KASK, Gent and guest professor at the University of Gießen.
