dada - when up is down


Schwenk, dada - when up is down, 2015 (single channel DVD with stereo sound, 2 mins loop)
dada - when up is down is a film that re-presents a work of socially engaged performance art.

The film is based on a dada inspired work of performance art that was
conceptualised and directed by Sylvia Schwenk. The socially based performance was presented by everyday people - who met half an hour before the performance - during the opening of the ‘going gaga with dada’ exhibition at Brenda May Gallery, Sydney, Australia in 2012.

The recently completed film, d
ada - when up is down, will premier at 'Multiples' an exhibition curated by Akky van Ogtrop at Brenda May Gallery in June 2015.

Photographs from the work are shown below.
