On Friday, October 22 at 12:00, an artist talk with Miles Greenberg will be held at the Iceland University of the Arts, (Laugarnesvegur 91). Please note that you must wear masks at the school.
The talk will be in English and is open to everyone.
Miles Greenberg (b. 1997 in Montreal, Canada) is a performance artist and researcher of corporal movement based in New York. His work consists of large-scale, sensorially-immersive and often site-specific environments which revolve around the physical body in space. These installations are activated with durational performances, treating the body as a sculptural material.
At age seventeen, Greenberg left formal education and threw himself into a four-year independent research project studying movement and architecture as they relate to the Black body. This spanned a number of solo artistic/research including École Jacques Lecoq and Musée du Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Red Gate Gallery Beijing and Long Island’s Watermill Center. He has a largely self-acquired background in linguistics, perfumery, butoh and physical theatre, and has studied under the direction of various mentors such as Edouard Lock, Robert Wilson and Marina Abramović.
Greenberg’s form is the result of rigorous methodology which resides at the threshold of performance and sculpture. The work follows self-contained, nonlinear systems of logic which are best understood in relation to one another.
