Slet 080311 - flocking of birds


Screening of performance & video works by female artists in celebration of 100th International Women’s Day

8th March 2011

SLET 080311 – Flocking of birds

To mark 100 years since the first International Women’s Day, and in honour of female courage, determination and achievement Performans klub Fiskulturnik presents, a celebratory slice of present-day performance & video by a diverse, digital sisterhood.

Slet 080311 is conceived as an international digital festival of works by female artists who use their own body as an expressive tool or are exploring a concept of the body / identity through image and movement. Featuring eclectic footage – from live & performance art, through circus and dance, to photography and video - Slet 080311 is a versatile collection of works created by both emerging and established contemporary artists.

The footage will be webcast on-line at fiskultura.com and simultaneously screened, at a number of cities in Europe on the 8th of March 2011 - the 100th International Women’s day. Conceptualising each artist as a cell, equally essential in the construction of this collective digital body, the participants connect into a creative mass that celebrates and commemorates the history of female suffrage, feminist movements and universal themes around female identity. All in all– a true flocking of ‘birds’! 

U povodu 100. obljetnice Međunarodnog dana žena, Performans klub Fiskulturnik proslavlja hrabrost, odlučnost i podvige ostvarene u proteklih sto godina borbe za ženska prava i rodnu jednakost projektom Slet 080311. Međunarodni je to digitalni festival autorica koje koriste svoje tijelo kao izražajni instrument ili pak istražuju tematiku ženskog tijela/identiteta. Raznovrsni radovi, od performansa preko cirkuskih vještina i suvremenog plesa do videa i fotografije, kako novih tako i etabliranih umjetnica, prenosit će se na internetu putem live streaminga na fiskultura.com te istovremeno prikazivati u gradovima Istre i Europe 8. ožujka 2011. Udružene u svojevrsno kolektivno sestrinstvo koje na stoti Međunarodni dan žena nezaustavljivo struji virtualnim teritorijem, sudionice će se dotaći kako povijesti feminističkih pokreta tako i univerzalnih tema ženske osobnosti.
