Performance / Programma Permanently Practising

Pay what you can

Elien Ronse:
In fact, we are a team!? (on friendship)

Live video-performance (40")

In de live video-performance In fact, we are a team!? (on friendship) exploreert beeldend kunstenaar Elien Ronse de eenvoudige en complexe kanten van vriendschap. Gedurende verschillende jaren documenteerde ze momenten met vrienden zoals het helpen tijdens een verhuis, ontgoochelingen en het vieren van een 33 jaar oude vriendschap. Er zijn geen scripts voor relaties met vrienden: ze kennen minder patronen of ceremonies dan romantische relaties. En toch zijn er in vriendschappen vele kleine gewoontes en gedragingen die wijzen op mentale, financiële en andere vormen van zorg. Deze zijn fantastische en tegelijkertijd bescheiden manieren om zich te verzetten tegen kapitalistische normatieve logica en ze counteren geïdealiseerde fantasieën rond het kerngezin. Tijdens de performance deelt Elien een twintigtal verhalen, acties en gebeurtenissen over de moeilijkheden en de liefde die ze heeft ervaren binnen vriendschappen.

Elien Ronse (Gent/Brussel) werkte in Kunsthal Gent in augustus, november en december 2021 (ontwikkelingsprogramma Permanently Practising). Deze live performance komt vooruit uit werkperiodes in Kunsthal Gent en Workspace Brussels.

Elien Ronse

Ik ben een witte Belgische hetero vrouw die hoogopgeleid is als beeldend kunstenaar, ik ben deel van non-monogame relaties en officieel leef ik onder de Belgische armoedegrens. Ik engageer me in projecten waar diverse disciplines samenkomen zoals hedendaagse kunsten, sociaal werk, politiek activisme, theoretisch onderzoek,… Heel vaak combineer(de) ik reizen en werken, ik werd hierin onder andere gesteund door residenties zoals Das Weisse Haus (Vienna), Pier-2 Artcenter (Kaohsiung), Digital Art Studios (Belfast), Zarya (Vladivostok), YARAT (Baku, postponed),… Ik nam deel aan events en tentoonstellingen in Silent Green (Berlin), Pleasure Zone (Basel), Hotwheels (Athens), Barimart (Gwangju)… Daarnaast ben/was ik actief in relationele-collaboratieve projecten en organisaties zoals Manoeuvre, Cultureel Centrum Truck Stop, De Koer, Other Women’s Flowers, Para-instituut voor KUNST en precariteit (Gent),… In al deze plekken wordt mijn beeldend werk (tot op zekere hoogte) geactiveerd. Ik behaalde een MA in Vrije Kunsten in Dutch Art Institute, een Advanced MA in Sint Lucas Antwerpen en een BA in Sociaal Werk.
