Glasgow International 2020

Esther Ferrer with Louise Ahl and Fritz Welch, Jessica Higgins, Sandra Johnston, and Pester & Rossi

MINIMAL/POOR/PRESENT

Event
Performance

Developed in parallel to Esther Ferrer’s performative action I’m Going To Tell You About My Life, MINIMAL/POOR/PRESENT features a performance piece by the Spanish live art pioneer, as well as four new commissions by UK-based artists loosely inspired by her work. Jointly, the two projects claim a continuity and intensified relevance for Ferrer’s wide-ranging artistic legacy in the context of Brexit, amidst global instability and deepening social tensions.

After a lifetime of practice, much of it in exile, Ferrer believes her work to be at its strongest when she uses primarily her own body, keeping props and other elements to a minimum. Anarchism remains a central theme for her.

Supported by Glasgow International and the Office for Cultural and Scientific Affairs of the Embassy of Spain in London.
