Perfomance Art Bank is a database that presents current Finnish performance and Live Art. It was published to the audience yesterday at the sales exhibition of contemporary art Art Fair Suomi.
I'm listed in the database as Suvi Aarnio and got invited to perform at the opening. I made a crazy version of my Blossom act involving a lot of playing with earth and ripping my thighs :) And as you can see I had loads of time to fool around in the "backstage".
Anyways, I recently noticed that Tigger! described himself as stripperformance artist. What a wonderful definition! Many of my acts are inspired by the past and yesteryear stars of burlesque but occasionally I've felt a bit strange to call some other acts as burlesque or to be more precise, art of tease.
In one hand, I think the world is already drowning in definitions, terms and classifications but on the other hand, it's wise to be aware of different styles / phenomena / etc. and especially, to be aware of what one herself is doing.
