Celiné Condorelli at International Festival "The Theatre" Stockholm 3-5 Feburary 2006
International Festival “The Theatre” takes as a series of departure points for the realization of the project – to develop and build a full-scale theatre on the basis of a budget conventionally issued for a theatre/dance performance - during Steirischer Herbst 2007 a number of seminars. These seminars are to be held on a quarterly basis in different cities in Europe, inviting old and new guest for discussions and processes. At each seminar a public session will be held where the invited guests give presentations of their own work, practically and theoretically. Some of the presentations will be given specific weight to the project itself, others will be concerned with local projects or with more general issues concerning performance and architecture in its widest possible meaning.
The first seminar was given at the art space Tensta Konsthall in Stockholm 3-5 February 2006.
Celiné Condorelli gives in this presentation in depth orientations of three central projects in her and Support Structures activities over the last few years. Celiné Condorelli’s work bring archicture into fields of social and political complexity where spaces addressed open for introspection of their inherent hierarchical and productive coordination. Specific notice is taken in respect of how and when collaboration or shared work produces autonomy rather than concessions. Celiné Condorelli and Support Structures work produce this certain kind of autonomy precisely through offering space and activity as open ends.
Celiné Condorelli is an architect. She is teaching at London Metropolitan University and her practice is concerned with architecture as interface, through art and architecture collaborations. Recent works include developing ‘Support Structure’, an RSA Art for Architecture and Arts Council England project with Artist-Curator Gavin Wade, through several exhibitions including at the Chisenhale Gallery, London, 2003, and The Economist, London, 2004, as well as taxi_onomy with artist Beatrice Gibson, supported by Arts Council England, the British Council and V2 Rotterdam.
