Performance Re-enactment Society (PRS)

Next week Paul will be presenting Untitled Performance Stills, with the Performance Re-enactment Society and photographer Hugo Glendinning, as part of The Pigs of Today are the Hams of Tomorrow. The exhibition, durational performances and symposium are curated as a collaboration between Plymouth Arts Centre and Marina Abramović.

The Performance Re-enactment Society and Hugo Glendinning gather together international practitioners, researchers, producers, curators, funders and audiences of performance art to form an archive of recollections of live art events. Each participant works with the Society to archive their memories of a past performance work that had a deep impact on them, recording their recollections and creating a still image that captures a memorable moment from the event. These playful re-enactments to camera place the audience in the frame and will be presented as new co-created works, alongside the memories participants have deposited in the collection.
