Eva & Franco Mattes (aka 010010110101101)
Synthetic Performances is a series of performative historical reenactments
that take place in virtual worlds and video games. This ongoing project,
which the Mattes' started in January 2007, includes reenactments of: Chris
Burden's Shoot; Vito Acconci's Seedbed; Valie Export's Tapp und Tastkino,
and Joseph Beuys' 7000 Oaks (in progress).
For PERFORMA07, Eva and Franco Mattes will stage a selection of three of their Synthetic Performances, including a new reenactment of a performance by Marina Abramovic. The artists will conduct these performances live from
Artists Space in the online world Second Life through avatars constructed from the shape and surface of their own bodies. Those unable to attend the live performance are invited to participate virtually by logging on to Second Life at http://slurl.com/secondlife/Odyssey/35/41/24/?title=Odyssey
Please note: The location is Odyssey at 4pm Second Life time.
Performance starts at 7 pm
