Performprint in action: Bearings, beauty and irrelevance
Performprint pushes the boundaries of not only print but artist and audience interaction - the collaborative duo blends theories on copy based technologies through print informed works and ideas of future human scenarios into live durational performance work.
In this performance work Bearings, beauty and irrelevance Performprint, who are exhibiting in the RMIT Gallery exhibition Out of the Matrix, will take their work outside the gallery and into the laneway for a process art live performance featuring a skater, block ink and carved skateboard wheels.
The Collaborative duo Performprint both have independent practices in visual art. They have worked alongside each other as independent artists on past projects and these proved to be very fruitful. It was from this history that they decided to work collaboratively and develop a live art practice together. Performprint is the duo's most significant collaborative project as it encompasses the full spectrum of both their print and performance practices respectively.
