Performance at Västerås Konstmuseum, August 2018
A performance exclusively made for and performed at the finissage of exhibition For Fashion’s Sake at Västerås Konstmuseum. In this piece, Minna Palmqvist collaborates with dancer Bo Liu, who desperately tries to follow directions given by Palmqvist from the side of the stage. The directions are contradictory advice and demands such as ”Loose 5 kilos in 5 days”, ”Keep up appearances”, ”Be yourself”. Along with each ”advice” Palmqvist gives Bo directions on how to move, such as ”Right hand to yellow”, ”Left foot to blue”, just as in the classic parlor game Twister.
At the end of the 5 minute long performance, Bo stops taking directions and breaks free.
