In the live video-performance 'In fact, we are a team!?', visual artist Elien Ronse explores the simplicities and complexities of friendship. Over the course of several years, Elien documented moments with friends, such as moving homes together, disappointments and the celebration of a 33 year old friendship. Relationships with friends don’t come with a social script: they have less patterns and ceremonies than romantic relations. Yet even in friendships, there are numerous small habits and behaviours that demonstrate mental, financial, and other forms of care. These are great and humble ways to find strength in resisting capitalist normative logic and countering imaginations around the nuclear family. During the performance, Elien shares twenty stories, actions and happenings related to the warmth and difficulties within friendships.
Elien Ronse (Ghent/Brussel) worked at Kunsthal Gent in August, November and December 2021 (development programme Permanently Practising). This live performance comes forward from work periods at Kunsthal Gent and Workspace Brussels.
