Tellinga’s evolving durational installation project traces the increasingly blurred distinction between our physical real and a simulated technological reality. Fusing site, movement, video technology and the human senses, the piece stages a radically slowed-down choreography for 4 performers who scan our fundamental postures —standing, walking, sitting, lying down— as the means to negotiate a heavily medialised installation environment. The performances become gradually expanded and displaced through non-linear video feeds, image transmission and occasional text mediation on large-size canvases mounted in the space. While subject of perpetual broadcast, the postures slowly take shape as still acts of resistance, protesting the never-ceasing scrambling of their time and location and quietly (re)enacting the relational space the performers share between them.

‘Martijn Tellinga’s “presence (Un) presence” employs

forms of slow encounter in an effort to make us pause and experience a

passing present in all its heterogeneity and difference. This work acts and reacts, calls and responds, it folds time upon itself, it persists, it continues. It reminds

 us that we are affective bodies, constantly pulsing with waves, evolving

and creating new energies as we react and interact with other bodies’

—from Mark Garry’s written response ‘I am listening to you’

The artistic practice of Martijn Tellinga occupies an intermedium between spatial installation, music, and durational performance. Drawn from a reduced formalist-seeming vocabulary, it engages site, sound, moving image, choreography, the temporal and the textual. Exploring processual dynamics and open-form composition processes, he seeks to address questions of place, agency and environment from within evolving exhibition settings. He presents worldwide, lectures and works in residence. He is one of the curator producers of the long running series DNK Amsterdam. With DNK Ensemble he interprets and re-enacts seminal pieces on the edge of experimental music and performance art. He lives between Amsterdam, The Netherlands and Dublin, Ireland.

Generously supported by the Irish Arts Council, Dutch Mondriaan Fonds and TU Dublin (MSCA RISE Nest).
