Florence Lam performs at Manifesta 11
01 sep 2016 by art:i:curate team
Florence Lam is presenting her new performance entitled "The Artist Disappears" at the Cabaret der Künstler - Zunfthaus Voltaire. Taking inspiration from traditional guilds, where people would meet so as to represent their each profession, Cabaret Voltaire will become the home to the newly founded Guild of Artists.
During Manifesta 11, Cabaret Voltaire will be renamed into Cabaret der Künstler – Zunfthaus Voltaire, posing as a guildhall for artists. Each artist in the guild will join another artist focusing on a different medium, to create a new performance on the Cabaret stage. The selected performance programme is curated by artist Christian Jankowski and is part of Manifesta 11, the European Biennial of contemporary art, in Zurich.
On Wednesday, September 7, Florence Lam will present her latest performance piece "The Artist Disappears", in which she will collaborate with Icelandic Magician, Gunnar Kr Sigurjónsson.
The performance programme will run from June 11 until September 18, 2016. Florence Lam's "The Artist disappears" will be presented on
