A Performance by Madison Bycroft and Angelika Falkeling
The collaborative duo Max and Angel have produced music videos exploring the effects of social anxieties with a domestic sphere, devised theatre pieces with a kindergarten where they played clarinets in a procession of dogs and are now at the 18th Street Art Centre where they are experimenting with music, narrative, costuming and props to begin devising a new theatrical work, portable in a suitcase.
Angelica lives and works in Rotterdam. They make performance, textile, installation, video and writing, and are concerned about the economical and ecological aspect of artistic production from an intersectional point of view. In the scale of the domestic, their persona often appears as a queer instigator, tailor and storyteller who experiments with different textile craft techniques passed on through cross-generational dialogues, humour and geological time.
Bycroft lives and works in Marseille, and works between video, sculpture and performance. Central to their practice is the notion of ‘pathos’, the activity and/or passivity of affect in relation to material processes of subjectivation. Of current interest are the tensions between slapstick and dead-pan-scape-goatery, as performative modes that do not move towards resolution, synthesis or mastery.
