Artist Talk

Artist Talk is a preview talk in disguise.

A person claiming to be Saskia Holmkvist appears and tells us in a theoretic way what her work is about. A few minutes later the same person announces that she would like Saskia Holmkvist to step forward and perform this. This time the  ́real` Saskia Holmkvist comes in and states the exact same two first phrases as the first person did. The  ́fake`Saskia Holmkvist now appears to be a Pr-person and interupts Saskia while she is explaining the exhibition to ask the audience how things that were said came across. This intervention makes the audience take part in the performance and respond to the questions of the Pr-person. Then Saskia Holmkvist is asked over and again to explain or re-state what she has just said.
