#23 TRUTH

Buro Stedelijk is pleased to present Manifestation #23: TRUTH, a new video and installation piece by performance artist and sculptor Miles Greenberg. Developed especially for Buro Stedelijk, the Central Space will host an immersive installation with a large pool, welcoming visitors to wade through its shallow waters. The pool is flanked by three video projections of a newly commissioned work derived from documentation of Greenberg’s spectacular durational performance TRUTH, that took place in May 2023 in New York City at Powerhouse Arts. Buro Stedelijk shows TRUTH to European audiences for the first time from February 15 to March 31, 2024.

Presented as part of a new iteration of the original eponymous performance, this new work documents the impressive 7-hour-long battle of eight sword-wielding performers painted in black oil, dueling in a volcanic, vermillion-colored pool. Enclosed in projections and surrounded by a new edit of the original soundtrack by Chino Amobi, the viewer is invited to enter the pool’s reflective landscape. TRUTH implicates the viewer’s body in the fabric of the installation, making the environment react to their presence. In so doing, Greenberg sets out to challenge the boundaries between performance art, sculpture and installation art in a highly immersive way.

“I was thinking about perceived similarities between love and violence. This series is about creating space for contradiction through the abstraction of an action. I want to resolve opposing polarities, guided purely by the body.” – Miles Greenberg

Familiar to the city of Amsterdam, in October 2022 Greenberg showed the durational piece Landscape with Figures as part of the program No Intermission developed by Marina Abramović at Royal Theatre Carré Amsterdam. For Landscape with Figures, Greenberg transformed Carré’s ballroom into a desert, covering the Royal Theatre’s floor with sand, mirrors and groups of performers drenched in castor oil. Both Buro Stedelijk and Greenberg are committed to experimentation as a means to imagine other futures for both art and the world at large and are excited to share this joint effort with Dutch audiences and beyond this February.

Manifestation #23: TRUTH by Miles Greenberg is on display at Buro Stedelijk’s Central Space from February 15 to March 31, 2024.

Amsterdam, 15 februari 2024 – Buro Stedelijk presenteert met trots Manifestation #23: TRUTH, een nieuw video- en installatiewerk van performancekunstenaar en beeldhouwer Miles Greenberg. Speciaal ontwikkeld voor Buro Stedelijk, zal de Central Space een immersieve installatie presenteren met een grote vijver, die bezoekers uitnodigt om door het ondiepe water te waden. De vijver wordt geflankeerd door drie videoprojecties van een nieuw werk dat is afgeleid van de documentatie van Greenbergs spectaculaire durational performance TRUTH, die in mei 2023 plaatsvond in New York City bij Powerhouse Arts. Buro Stedelijk toont TRUTH voor het eerst aan het Europese publiek van 15 februari tot 31 maart 2024.

Dit nieuwe werk, dat wordt gepresenteerd als onderdeel van een nieuwe versie van de oorspronkelijke, gelijknamige performance, documenteert de indrukwekkende, 7 uur durende strijd van acht zwaarddragende, in zwarte olie geschilderde performers die duelleren in een vulkanisch, vermiljoenkleurige vijver. Omsloten door projecties en omgeven door een nieuwe versie van de originele soundtrack van Chino Amobi, wordt de toeschouwer uitgenodigd om het spiegelende landschap van de vijver te betreden. TRUTH betrekt het lichaam van de kijker in het weefsel van de installatie, waardoor de omgeving reageert op hun aanwezigheid. Hiermee wil Greenberg de grenzen tussen performancekunst, sculptuur en installatiekunst op een immersieve manier uitdagen.

I was thinking about perceived similarities between love an violence. This series is about creating space for contradiction through the abstraction of an action. I want to resolve opposing polarities, guided purely by the body.– Miles Greenberg

Vertrouwd met de stad Amsterdam, presenteerde Greenberg in oktober 2022 de performance Landscape with Figures als onderdeel van het programma No Intermission ontwikkeld door Marina Abramović in Koninklijk Theater Carré Amsterdam. Voor Landscape with Figures transformeerde Greenberg de balzaal van Carré in een woestijn door de vloer van het Koninklijk Theater te bedekken met zand, spiegels en in castorolie gedrenkte groepen performers. Zowel Buro Stedelijk als Greenberg zijn toegewijd aan het experiment als middel om zich een andere toekomst voor te stellen voor zowel de kunst als de wereld in het algemeen en zijn verheugd om deze gezamenlijke inspanning in februari met het Nederlandse publiek en daarbuiten te delen.

Manifestation #23: TRUTH van Miles Greenberg zal te zien zijn in Buro Stedelijk Central Space van 15 februari tot 31 maart 2024.

Every year on the 1st of July we commemorate slavery and celebrate the abolition of slavery: Keti Koti. Since we believe that Keti Koti should be a national holiday, we are closed on the 1st of July. We asked Lydiënne Albertoe to design a graphic work for this particular occasion. The work is placed on the door of our Central Space and the windows of the Studio Space.
