The Blob invades Kunsthall Trondheim and invites the audience to a playful, choreographic full body guided tour of the exhibition this is a political (painting). Even if you have seen the exhibition before, you’ll experience it differently this time.
The Blob blobs Kunsthall Trondheim as well as the guided tour per se by questioning norms and hierarchies in the given situation. Blobbing could be seen as a choreography rearranging attention, time, space and more.
The Blob is this time channeled through Anna Efraimsson and Tove Salmgren or vice versa. Blobbing was previously done at International Deleuze Conference in Stockholm 2015 and at Promise of Monsters in Stavanger 2016.
The event is included in the entrance ticket.
The Blob is an elastic boneless alter ego/artist/ body curating, initiating and producing art and culture with a special interest in choreography. It creates forms and projects that stand alone or “blob on” to different structures through collaboration. It is inspired by the character Barbapapa and the 1950’s horror film The Blob and borrows characteristics from these blobs.
Anna Efraimsson works in performing arts as a curator, producer, lecturer, dramaturge and runs The Blob since 2014. She is a senior lecturer in choreography with a specialization in curatorial practices at DOCH School for Dance and Circus in Stockholm.
Tove Salmgren works in the field of the performing arts as a dancer, choreographer and dramaturge. She is one of two artistic leaders of Köttinspektionen dans in Uppsala, Sweden, a venue for dance, theatre and visual art. Her artistic work often uses text and body, through performative experiments that deals with and challenges social hegemonic structures and practices.
