Ida Brottmann - Visual art
In my practice I am concerned with the questions of Authenticity and
Authorship; what happens when you outsource a task to non-professionals? Where does authenticity and authority lie? And what is really the difference between intellectual property and labor property. Concerned with the economy of beauty and questions of authorship I employ people to embody a set of rules to fit a given situation. Through the medium of live art I attempt to define the meaning of a sculpture, a portrait, an exhibition area or the way we address meaning to imagery.
Occupied with the temporality of Live Art and a deep urge to make Live Artstatic, I focus mainly on what I call Non-event performance. I believe that by making a performative piece independent from the body of it’s creator as well as time, it can achieve a static life.
With an interest in the immigration of images, how icons is created and the way they form our understanding of ways of seeing, I am questioning our own position and history within the gaze of others. I have come to the my own portrait is a product of every image I have seen, since I started to look; that my self-portrait is a product of a desire to being seen in a certain way. Posing the question; what does it mean to outsource a self-portrait? I work with the economics and ethics of female visibility, labour and value.
