Action art is an ephemeral, presential, experiential, processual and non-object art: “a theater without theater”. According to Mónica Mayer, through performance art we get to realize how extraordinary life is. Art is simply a lens that allows us to observe it (or experience it) from a different perspective. With the purpose to enter in a flow state, or flow “into the zone”, the creative workshop will promote an environment that facilitates participation, disinhibition and the free expression of emotions and ideas.
Taking on a process rather than goal oriented approach, we will focus through diferent activities in the development of intuition and introspection as fundamental elements of performance art. Concentrating more on the practical side of the subject, the aim of this workshop is not only the realization of a time-based art work as it could be a live performance, happening, video-action or sound intervention but also the playful experimentation as part of the process of creation.
Marta Moreno Muñoz (Spain, 1978) is a performance and video artist with a background in experimental theatre and other time-based arts. Graduating in 2002 with a M.A in Fine Arts, her work has focused predominantly on “feminine” subjectivity, dissolution of the ego and the notion of pre-oedipal nostalgia in response to a patriarchal and undesirable reality. She is at present in a transitional stage, shifting towards the conceptualization of larger-scale projects exploring the complex interchange between performance art and the cinematic language. Marta Moreno has lived, produced and engaged in artistic works in Spain, UK, Turkey, India, The Netherlands, Indonesia, Singapore, The Philippines and exhibited internationally.
Currently nomadic, she is working on personal art projects, researching for her PhD thesis “Art as an Experience of Dissolution of the Self” and directing The Unifiedfield, an independent artist-run organization focusing on the experimental aspects of sound, video and performance art.
