Et helt års residency er slut. Dansehallernes første udvalgte RESA-kunstner Eva Meyer-Keller vil med sin researchpartner Ilya Noé forsøge at kortlægge de forskellige mønstre, der tegner sig efter det sidste års arbejde. Eva Meyer-Keller har inddraget naturvidenskaben i sit kunstneriske arbejde, og det er derfor helt naturligt at resultaterne fra hendes arbejde nu kan opleves på Medicinsk Museion. Tag med og få en særlig aften med indsigt i en kunstners research og kunstneriske udvikling i smukke og inspirerende naturvidenskabelige omgivelser.
Dette research-arbejde leder samtidig frem til Eva Meyer-Kellers anden del af sin triology, Living Matters, som har premiere i nov. 2019.
Denne event er en del af RESA, som står for Residency for Exchange and Sustainability in the Arts. RESA er en del af The Artist’s Research Lab and Residency Programme. Læs mere.

On September 19 and 20, RESA fellow Eva Meyer-Keller together with her research partner and co-labourer Ilya Noé will host a two-evening event during which they will attempt to map the different pathways emerging from Eva’s year-long residency in Dansehallerne’s pilot program. Criss-crossing live performance, storytelling, and exchanges with (and between) artistic and scientific researchers, the occasion will largely spiral around the slow, leaky and meandering process of the making of “Living Matters”, the second part of a trilogy of stage works that Eva has been developing in conversation with natural scientists and made viable only thanks to RESA, which will premiere in November 2019.
Eva Meyer-Keller (DE)
Eva Meyer-Keller (DE) works at the interface of performance and visual art. Before graduating from the School for New Dance Development (SNDO) in Amsterdam she studied photography and visual art in Berlin (HdK) and London (Central St. Martins and King’s College). Her artwork is distinctive due to its meticulous attention to detail. Eva Meyer-Keller often uses everyday objects from her immediate surroundings, things that she finds at home, in the supermarket or in the tool shed. This inevitably lends the work an obsessive, domestic aesthetic. Her working method is marked by a constructive disregard for the imposition of any boundary between visual and performing arts. Her works include the performances Death is Certain (from 2002 and performed in more than 200 venues around the world since) and Pulling Strings (Kunsten Festival des Arts, Brussels, 2013), and the installations Volksballons (Palast der Republik, 2004; Centre Pompidou-Metz, 2013), and Handmade (nGbK Berlin, Bonniers Konsthall Stockholm, Palais de Tokyo Paris). Currently she is working on a trilogy of performance works in dialogue with natural scientists focusing on how models do not just describe reality, but rather create their own. The first part, titled Some Significance, premiered in November 2017, while Living Matters, the second part, will open in November 2019 at PACT Zollverein in Essen.
Eva Meyer-Keller develops projects alone and in collaboration with other artists, such as Uta Eisenreich, Sybille Müller, Kate McIntosh, and Ilya Noé. She also lends herself as a deviser and performer to other choreographers, and works as a dramaturgical advisor/mentor. She has worked with Baktruppen, Jérôme Bel, Christine De Smedt / les Ballets C de la B (9×9), Juan Dominguez, and Agnes Meyer-Brandis.
Since 2010 she has held ongoing teaching positions at several degree programmes across Europe, including at the HZT/UdK and Bard College in Berlin, at DOCH and on the MA course
‘The Autonomous Actor’ in Stockholm, and at ZHdk in Zürich and the University of Hildesheim.
Ilya Noé (DE) is a visual/performance artist-researcher. Born in Mexico City, she has since expanded her zone of work by popping up on all sides of the Atlantic and the Pacific to trace lines and build spaces – by hand, on foot, and in co-creation with both humans and non-humans alike. Ilya Noé now lives and works in Berlin where she was one of the organisers of the Month of Performance Art; is one of the founders of Berlin’s Association for Performance Art; and often teaches and mentors BA and MA students while remaining engaged with her PhD dissertation on Performance Studies at the University of California, Davis. Ilya Noé recently showed her work at the 12th Shanghai Biennale, represented her home country in Venice’s OPEN2000, became a UNESCO-Aschberg Laureate, and was recipient of Mexico’s National Young Art Award. A special guest at both the European Landscape Biennial (Spain) and the Cerveira International Art Biennial (Portugal), she has also shown work at the Boston Center for the Arts (USA), Centre d’Art Santa Mónica (Barcelona), Centro Nacional de las Artes (Mexico City), AC Institute (New York), TRAFO (Poland), CAS Osaka (Japan), Excentricités Festival (France), Visions_V (Greece), and PerforMensk (Belarus), among others. She has been artist in residence at institutions such as the Banff Centre for the Arts (Canada), Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik (Berlin), Campo Arqueológico de Mértola (Portugal), Museu de Sant Pol (Barcelona), and McLaughlin Natural Reserve (USA). Her work is represented in European, Asian, and North American public collections.
