Acting Truthfully… @ Tenderpixel, Nov 13 – Dec 20

10 November 2014

Tenderpixel Gallery is hosting a new group exhibition, titled Acting Truthfully Under the Circumstances* and running at their London space from November 13 to December 20.

The exhibition – which features seven international artists and artist pairs, including Feiko Beckers, Anja Kirschner and David Panos, Jacopo Miliani, Timothy Ivison and Julia Tcharfas, and Rehana Zaman – commences with a private view on November 13 accompanied by a performance by Beckers.

The exhibition itself takes its name from a video installation by Kirschner and Panos exploring acting exercises developed by actor (and acting teacher) Sanford Meisner, hinting to the performative “post-Brechtian and postdramatic theatre” aspect of the show. Where Beckers’s performance stages personal stories of problematic human relationships in The Exact Opposite of the Exact Opposite, Miliani’s series Folding Characters combines found footage of scene photographs from plays with a collection of folded fabrics, and Ivison and Tcharfas, in turn, created a reading room and event space after Cecil Court’s antique bookshops.
