Eva Ísleifs & Steinunn Gunnlaugsdóttir | FEED, Norway.
9-24 April 2016
9-10 April Live weekend
22 April Symposium
FEED is a platform for performance and intervention in public spaces. The platform asks you to consider the concept of feeding as a political and cultural action, questioning what it means to feed, and who as individuals we support and give to. The platform aims to touch upon important issues about the people and places we live in, reflecting upon our own positions in society and that of those around us. The project starts with the act of giving; thinking about your own personal boarders; it ask you to get personal, political and angry.
