Still life with Cabbage

Synopsis: Foley artists use cabbages to simulate the sound of actions such as fights and decapitation. This performance builds on the discrepancies between sound and image with a ritual that opposes the familiar and benign with the dark and gory.

Performed by White Market and Lost Parade.


WHITE MARKET is a performance label. Founded in 2009 it creates interventions which take place within the fabric of the everyday. WHITE MARKET foregrounds the artist’s exploration of his/ her market value, exploring the body as material and gesture as form. The performers displace and subvert familiar activities, domestic rituals and materials of the everyday, playing with their logic within unfamiliar contexts. The artist’s body acts thereby as the locus for the intersection between different systems and values. The name WHITE MARKET references the rules and regulations of the established art market and plays with its opacity, deliberations and dynamics. As a performance label WHITE MARKET acts out the paradox between the values of the art market and the impossibility to commodify the performer’s body. FOR MORE INFORMATION VISIT WHITE MARKET'S WEBSITE.
