Superusurpedsupper / 2013 / Performance by jugedamos (Jurgis Paškevicius, Géraldine Longueville, David Bernstein) / Presented at Nomas, Rome (IT)
Part of ‘Collecting Matters, an exchange’, a joint project by Nomas Foundation, Kadist Art Foundation, and David Roberts Art Foundation.
Superusurpedsupper was a storytelling performance featuring artworks chosen from the three foundations’ collections. The artworks were used as props and characters in our journey to the Ganek mountain, the place where artist Július Koller founded and directed the U.F.O. Gallery Ganek — a fictive gallery that allowed him to communicate with the unknown cosmic world. The performance explored how an art piece can be extended and reinterpreted. It also questioned the borders between art and tool, authenticity and fake, and between individual authorship and shared creation.
The performance included works by: Eduardo Arroyo, Joseph Beuys, Maurizio Cattelan, Peter Coffin, Jules-Aimé Dalou, Thea Djordjadze, Ryan Gander, Július Koller, Benoît Maire, Ursula Mayer, Nicolas Matranga, Jean-Luc Moulène, Pratchaya Phinthong and Tobias Rehberger.
A libretto publication was produced for the performance, here is the digital pdf
