: I ALMOST LOVE YOU
I ALMOST LOVE YOU - a lecture and dream about love and artificiality
I ALMOST LOVE YOU re-measures the performative playground for the 'acting out' of affection. On a sugary glaze of installed artificialness,
tableau-like projections within relationships are reflecting themselves and mechanisms of objectification are getting rubbed against a
subjective potency of performer and spectator. A masked performance in plastic, protected from authenticity and sentiments - almost.
Fanni Futterknecht has studied visual art in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Vienna. Her artistic work evolved from video installations and performative interventions in public space to performances that are constructed for a theatre context.
The artist currently lives and works now in Vienna.
