After Eva Meyer-Keller

After Eva Meyer-Keller Death is Certain was one of a series of photographs initiated and curated by The Performance Re-enactment Society as part of Live Laboratory Symposium The Pigs of today are the Hams of Tomorrow Co-curated with the Marina Abramovic Institute for the Preservation of Performance Art held at the Royal William Yard, Plymouth in 2010. A review of the re-enactment process by Rachel Dobbs (LOW PROFILE) can been read hereI selected this work to re-enact as it was one of the first pieces of live art to trigger a somaesthetic experience through recorded material. I later became fascinated with re-enactment and tested the re-enacting of a series of artists work in which I had been inspired by to consider how else artwork and artists documentation could be understood through the direct embodiment of re-enacting them.
