The second edition of Art14 opens on Thursday 27th February at Olympia, London.
Art14 has invited Liliane Lijn to perform Poem Game during the Art14 VIP (4-5pm) and preview evening (7-8pm) on the 27th February.
In 1970, Lijn created a deck of word cards, calling them Keys and inventing three games to play with them: a game of power, a game of poetry and a game of divination. Each card had one word to a side, ‘the words themselves having come to mind as I wrote them on the cards’. Poem Game is part of the Keys Trio, with Power Game and Oracular Keys.
During the fair, Art14 Special Projects will be screening a selection of Lijn's films - POWER GAME 1974, FASTER THAN BIRDS POEMDRUM, POWER GAME GLASGOW and COSMIC DRAMAS. The films will play between 1 and 2pm on each day of the fair, 28th Feb, 1st and 2nd March, in booth M28 Performance Space.
October 2014, Musee de Picardie, Amiens, France
'Conjunction of Opposites: Woman of War & Lady of the Wild Things' will be installed in a church in Amiens for a period of 2-3 months.
Il Museo della Canapa, Sant’Anatolia di Narco, Italy, has commissioned a permanent installation titled 'Spinning Dolls'.
Spinning Dolls consists of five conical forms, of various sizes, made of layers of cloth that much like women’s skirts will spin, rising and falling in thrall to gravity and centrifugal force. The work is called Spinning Dolls because these forms are a many layered metaphor of the feminine archetype. Conical, skirt-like, dancing dizzily, they evoke the multiple meanings of creation, from the making of cloth through spinning and weaving to the Moirae, or Fates, the Greek Goddesses who spin out human destiny to the cosmic spinning of planets and particles.
