Revolver

19.3. — 9.4.2022

Med værket ‘Sorcerer’ af den britiske kunstner Ed Atkins og den amerikanske forfatter Steven Zultanski fortsætter Revolver sin samtidskunstneriske linje, som blev påbegyndt i 2019 med værket ‘Cadavre Exquis’ af Jesper Just.

Her holder vi på med den kuratoriske tanke, at den sande udvikling af det teatralske rum tit kommer fra uventet kant: Fra dem, der er amatører og dermed meget nysgerrige på det scenekunstneriske rum, men til gengæld excellente på et andet felt. Her går vi efter toppen af dansk og international samtidskunst, og er meget beærede over kunstnerens store velvilje til at samarbejde og prøve noget, de aldrig har prøvet før.

Three friends hang out, conversing warmly about getting dressed, headaches, ticks, compression fantasies, surgery, and their aspirations, among other things. When two of the friends go home for the night, the remaining one watches TV, dances, and unpacks their face in front of a giant mirror.

The characters find contentment in each other’s company, conversing in the placid, eerie rhythms of a sitcom in which conflict never arises. Unease is exported to the set, a one-room apartment where a bed continuously squirms and everything hums and creaks as if about to rattle to life.

Sorcerer is a play about the pleasures of being with others and of being alone. Friendship prepares one to enjoy solitude, or to tear apart one’s face in peace.

Ed Atkins’s most recent exhibition, Get Life / Love’s Work, opened in June 2021 at the New Museum in New York, and a new book, Drawings for Children, was published by König in July. Steven Zultanski’s books include Relief and Bribery (published in Danish as Bestikkelse). They both live in Copenhagen.
