Alexandra Symons Sutcliffe

Alexandra Symons Sutcliffe (Germany) is a curator and writer whose work focuses on performance and documentary. During her residency at Rupert she will develop the curatorial research project ‘private performances.’ Co-conceived with the Scotland based curator Cicely Farrer, ‘private performances’ is a commission led project focused on the private or occluded aspects of performance art. The project seeks to complicate the definition “live-ness”  as an immediate experience, and ask what is at stake when expand the temporal conditions of performance art to include that which is not visible? While at Rupert, and working remotely with Farrer, Symons Sutcliffe will develop methodologies of display for the ‘private performances’ project for a future published programme.
