Mixing style from XVII – on, performance artist Xenia Perek impersonates five subversive, radical and improbable characters that form a constellation of a climactic experience. Through atmospheric installation, and outrageous detailed costume by artist Arthur Guilleminot, PC Dreams is a multidisciplinary and multidimensional experience.
As much as in a dream, their performance aspires to be a cosmic event and a special psychic energy. Thus the world and its characters created in PC Dreams renegotiate a status quo of d human values, introducing hilarious, empowering, angrodynous and aspirational perspectives. Think of an affair, a state of alarm, an olympic sprint with a giggle of laughter.
In the awe for alteration, artist Arthur Guilleminot creates a spatial installation, a womb-teleport for the audience to get actively inside the Perek’s instinctual material.
PC Dreams travel through epochs, Amsterdam’s queer nightlife and visual art production in a lookout for emotional prosperity and cosmic purpose. The work sums as a totality of hourly long visual, sonic, somatic and conceptual fun.
Hereby we self-proclaimed as one of the most unapologetic artists of Amsterdam’s city. XXX
Xenia Perek (1993, PL – NL) is a performance artist based in Amsterdam.
Perek creates physical and mental scores located in nocturnal venues and nightlife.
The sensorial imagery is for her the content and means of narration. Thus, her shows are body-builded momentums which can be seen separately, if not even as a photograph. She surrounds herself by explicit stories, dreams, life situations, physical states, which she terms as dynamic instinctual material. Perek’s characters are creating various un/effectiveness and energy in the socio-economical world they been placed at, as the quest for negotiations on how we live.
Perek is part of one of oldest Amsterdam’s drag queen House of Hopelezz. She is represented by a contemporary art gallery ADA in Rome.
Arthur Guilleminot (1992) is an artist with an ‘ecodeviant’ practice, living in Amsterdam. He was born in France in a family who disregards imposed norms of being.
Arthur’s practice is a strategy to facilitate the blossoming of different identities, unapologetic and non-normative. Addressing gender and sexuality, and playing with arousing shapes, his art calls for your hand, your body and your mind to merge into an experience. After his art studies at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, his work is currently researching tools for decolonizing disgust, through “Camp” aestheticism and buffoonery.
His work has been shown in the Netherlands, Belgium, United Kingdom, Germany, Greece, France and Switzerland.
