About Revolve elseweres
Revolve Performance Art Days is an annual performance art festival. This year's festival - Revolve elsewheres wants to highlight the ability of performance art to create alternative places in relation to time, space and the prevailing order of power.
What kind of space is created in an artistic process, and where is it situated in relation to our shared space? As audience members we participate with our own personal experiences and memories. One universe meets another and the artist is the alchemist evoking a new ‘here and now’ out of the existing one. How can we approach this alternative space? How do we enter these worlds from our own worlds and what kind of space is created in the meeting?
Artistry beyond the dominant narrative
The festival presents artists and artistic practices that move beyond the dominant narratives and incorporate the more-than-human, in processes that renegotiate and dissolve ideas about centre and periphery, where that which often goes unnoticed or unrecognised is the centre of attention.
Uppsala Art Museum and Wik's Castle
For two days the festival offers an intensive programme in two locations- Uppsala Art Museum and the environment around Wik Castle, a cultural landscape with rich biodiversity. Revolve elsewheres presents several site-specific performances and some of the works are connected to the exhibition A Posthumous Journey into the Future, currently on display at the Art Museum. An exploration of the sensual and the imaginary alongside questions about the extraction of the world's resources and loss of biodiversity. The imaginary has a potential to offer healing processes - a re-enchantment of the world, where links to an archaic past unfold.
