(images #1) dressed in a white shirt and bright trowsers i am standing in front of a white wall to which several silver knifes are attached. with my hands i am three times rubbing my eyes very strongly. out of a white bowl i am pouring noodle letters on my eyes. with tapes i attach the silver knives to my head.
(images #2)with my feet i get into a bucket that is filled with water. i can hardly stand in it and i start pouring red hot chili into the water. remaining in this position i try to attach crispbread and some toys to the wall in a way it reminds of a barn. but it is not at all working and everything keeps failing apart.
(images #3) i lay down and place some cold meat in my face. i wrap my whole head in plastic wrap and stand up again. i open my shirt, and with two forks i scratch a red sun around my bellybottom. i open the plastic wrap right where my mouth is at and slowly i remove the meat
(images #4) i am standing in front of a white wall with a bouquet of red roses. i start to softly pat the wall with the blossoms. i repeat this movement several times while increasing the force until i am bashing the roses against the wall.

- HILL Nate, Punch Me Panda: Fifth Free Public Service, 2010, photo: Teresa Nasty.
Brooklyn’s Nate Hill has a performance art ego that reincarnates often. His oeuvre has grown more complex, from public access rogue taxidermy shows to public service: He helped your purge your house of you ex’s stuff as the Death Bear and allowed you to pummel him with your fists as the Punch Me Panda. Currently, he’s focusing on internet-based performance that warps the notions of racism by comforting viewers with discomforting Internet entities through fake product sites and social media.
‘‘I’m a panda. You can punch me. I wear a chest protector. You wear boxing gloves. It’s free. No parties and don’t send me as a surprise. I prefer one on one, but roommates are fine. It’s a safe place to punch someone.’’
- KALSTRÖM Line Skywalker, At Danse Et Faengsel, 2010.
Line Skywalker Karlström (1971, Sweden, Denmark) is a Swedish performance artist who works with a diverse range of materials dealing with the role of art in life, lesbian and gay identity and the perception of space. Her performances take place in the public realm and also in gallery installations. In 2002-2007, Karlström was a member of the feminist performance group High Heel Sisters. She is also a founding member of the group of Swedish artist activists, YES! Association (2005).
The compound of a future state prison is the performance space in the video At Danse Et Faengsel (To Dance a Prison). Line Skywalker Karlström dances in this video before she squats part of the property. The artist intends to embody ideology and convey emancipation, restriction, violence and dominance through postures and gestures.

- KNEBL Jakob Lena, Titta von Tesa, 2010.
Jakob Lena Knebl (1970, Austria) works in the field of performance art and photography utilizing her own body as her primary medium. ‘‘The idea of a binary gender system started to become an ever-growing theme in my work while I was searching for structures that created my own self. I started to place my own transformation into the centre of my work. I consider my photos to be an acquisition, or even a ‘conquest’ of what is ‘ugly’. My self-portraits make the boundaries of gender become hazy.’’ (Knebl)
Jakob Lena Knebl’s photographs are abundant with cheeky and anarchic humour. They show processes of metamorphosis in which the artist reinterprets various roles and figures of an imaginary collective. In Ich bin die Anderen, the distorted faces of dolls address the narrow structures imposed by the definition of gender. Similarly, in Fettecke (Fat Corner), the artist examines the notion of female beauty expressed in the iconography of a reclining Venus throughout art history and at the same time ironically re-enacts Joseph Beuys’s infamous vork of the same title. Knebl destroys the conventions of art history by creating an unsetting self-ironic image between monstruosity, beauty and sensuality. Titta von Tesa and Austria Psycho-Portrait of a Lady directly address the media and literary icons anchored in popular culture. photo. Georg Petermichl.
- KOH Terence, Nothingtoodoo, 2011.
Chinese-Canadian artist Terence Koh create curious conceputal zines and gorgeous monochromatic mixed media work, all imbued with a sense of humor, ritualism, and a luminous aura of white. His internet presence is like a little gallery of experiences. For his first solo show at the Mary Boone Gallery in NYC, Koh crawled on his knees around an eight-foot tall mound of rock salt for 25 days, as a minimalist rite.

Would you like a cup of coffee? Or burn the world of bourgeois by Elena Kovylina. Her performances are known for their irreconcilable radicalism. Her performance Would you like a cup of coffee? Or burn the world of bourgeois brings together provocative political statements with radical artistic gesticulation. Kovylina invites viewers to join her at a refined tea party. After a few minutes of enjoying tea with the artist at her table, she unexpectidly sets the tablecloth on fire.

Five white chalkboards were installed along a long gallery wall and were written on by participants using white chalk. The parameters for this encounter were controlled using a booking system. As people indicated their interest in experiencing the piece, the gallery generated new booking times. In order for an activation of the work to take place, there had to be five people booked in to write on the boards for twenty minutes at a time. Each person who booked in agreed to use one of the white chalkboards to write continuously in white chalk on the board for the twenty-minute duration of their allocated session. The instruction for the writing was to write continuously whatever came to mind, similar to the psychoanalytic parameter indertaken by the analysand to ‘‘freely associate.’’ The white chalk on the white board was guaranteed to be private as whatever was written was illegible. The encounters took place in a public gallery, which generated a tension between the private act of writing one’s thoughts and the knowledge of the presence of other spectators. The fact that five people participated at any one time generated a kind of group. This enacted a collectivity, which, rather than demanding sameness in order to participate, demanded the simultaneous difference of each participants thoughts.
- SAADEH Raeda, Drops, 2010.
We see a woman’s face, motionless and her mouth wide open. It takes a while to realise that drops of water are falling into her mouth, drops that begin to sound like the ticking of a clock. In this quiet, almost meditative scene, a change occurs that is practically imperceptible. Water begins to trickle out of the side of the woman’s mouth and down her cheek, while her face remains expressionless. Toward the end of the video performance, the woman closes her mouth, only to open it again – caught in a loop between dying of thirst and downing, the procedure begins again.

- STRÖM Annika, Ten Embarrassed Men, 2010.
The performances by Swedish artist Annika Ström (1964, Sweden, UK) deal with, among other things – especially with the fact that they are under-represented in public collections. The artist usually does not take part in her own performances. instead, she emplys actors to play individuals in specific situations, suc as the Ten Embarrassed Men (2010) at the art fair, The Upset Man (2011) talking loudly on his phone during the opening speeches of an art exhibition, or Seven Women Standing in the Way (2011-2012). Ironically, these performances affirm and subvert stereotypical gender roles in the art world at the same time.
In the performance Ten Embarrassed Men, which was commissioned by Frieze Projects for the Frieze Art Fair 2010, ten embarrassed-looking men wandered around the fair stands during opening hours. The ten men were played by actors of different ages. All were dressed in identical derk trousers and white shirts, and all expressed embarrassment about the fact that women artists are under-represented on the art market.

45 minutes/live performance
Fucking Kunst is written on my belly with slimy and white colour. I’m dressed in a skirt with a 20 meter long trail made of buble wrap.
Slowly I walk down to iron stairs. The trail fills all the steps and it makes a sound. I lay down on the last steps. My head and shoulders lie on the floor, the rest of my body is on the last steps. For a long time I’m in this position and don’t blink my eyes.
After a while I wipe off the letters from my belly and stay in the same position as before.
At the end I’m rolling over my head and slowly walk upstairs till nobody can see me and my trail. Photo/video: Jens Kutilek.

4 hours/live performance
This performance take place in different locations. I wear a dark purple dress and chequered black-purle tights. I wear black patent leather boots with silber buckles and huge heels and a leather neckband with rivets. The hair looks short, it is wanged into short pigtails.
Every hour I move to a different location. I start at a huge stone. I squat one hour in front of the stone and blow soap bubbles on the stone. The bubbles burst.
In the second hour I sit next to a pier in the middle of a road. Cars drive to the right and left on me. I blow the soap bubbles on the red stones of the pier, the bubbles burst again.
In the third hour I stand in front of a huge birch tree. I blow the soap bubbles on the tree trunk. The bubbles take on the trunk for a while and little bubble hills spring up till they burst again.
In the fourth hour I stand in front of a window and blow the soap bubbles at the glass of the window.
The bubbles stick to the glass and huge bubble shapes spring up.

I lie sideways on a Roma couch. I wear a strapless, long dress which I crocheted. it has tree different colours. From the breast till the belly botton it is red, from the belly botton till the knees it is white and from the knees till the floor it is green. My hair has a high putting hair-style from the 50’s.
Bit by bit I unravel the dress. A green wool ball come into beeing and the dress gets shorter and shorter. I spool the white ball faster.
The red and last part I unravel fastest. Bit by bit my whole body is visual till I lie naked sideways on the Roman couch and the dress are just three wool balls. I put the wool balls between my legs. I stay in this position.

I lie on the stage floor. My legs are crossed, the upper part of my body and my arms lie on the floor, the palm of my hands are turned upwards. My body is supported by my forhead. I’m nude. A light is shining on me. A black burning candle is hanging approx. 50 cm above me. Black wax is dripping permanently onto my back. I don’t move for a long time.
I sit up on my knees, my back is facing the public. The wax is dripping on my back and running down my buttocks.
The candle has burned out. Slowly I’m santing up. I ‘‘dance’’ in one place, first slowly, later fast. Wax drops from my body. I’m standing. Slowly I turn my head to the public. I leave the stage. Photo/video: Antti Ahonen.
