During September, Sydney College of the Arts will be hosting the artist Markela Panegyres for a month- long studio residency and exhibition at Level Two 75 ½ George St, The Rocks. The first 3 weeks of the residency will be treated as an exhaustive period of ‘obsessive confession.’ Markela has set herself the task of creating a new performance-video each day.
A simple small set will be built within the space in which she will perform and film a number of actions throughout the day. Members of the public will be invited to enter the space and watch these actions as they evolve through improvisation and development. They will also be encouraged to speak personally with the artist. During this time Markela will also begin the construction of two confessional booths. Markela will also install several props and objects related to the performances. The exhibition itself will take place on a date to be confirmed shortly.
