Programme

Anna Berndtson

Borg

Durational performance, admission at all times / Alternative seating and reclining options

Part of "NO LIMITS Festival Berlin"

Performance

14:00-20:00 Durational Performance

In her durational performance, the artist Anna Berndtson deals with her personal boundaries. Infinitely slow she
moves through a landscape of tennis balls, clearing her way using her white cane. This work evokes associations of competitive sports, visual impairment and speed norms, as well as the “collective trauma“ and the pressure on Swedish children in the 1970s and 80s to become the next Björn Borg.
 
Anna Berndtson lives and works in Malmö and Berlin. She was a student of Marina Abramović at HBK
Braunschweig. “Borg” (2002) was a turning point in her artistic work. For the first time, the picture became more important
than the action. It also was the first time her disability was the focus of her work.
