"Some thoughts about the derivation of contextual conceptions:

Somatic Culture as interaction of various forms of human existence, coincidental attendances and absences, spacious realities and circumstances, with levels and layers of enliven worlds and realities. A discourse of participatory modifications, human and place, gestus and habitus, dealing and wheeling, etc. These facts can be seen as parameters within the most different encounters. I call them parameters, because it appears as the most diverse structural difference in various encounters, not touching any cultural inheritance, not the daily cultural representation, nor founded by the cultural presence of a single person, a population, a nation. It is touched by the "idiosyncrasy of the daily" and therefore a temporal longer lasting period of the course of process than the particular representation of the particular national culture. Next to the ethnographic and anthropologic context there is the interest to explore relations of human encounter that embody itself as dynamic change and is to be defined as pre-cultural force. This is examined in various fields and I want to portrait some of them." B.Nieslony, 2013

Bird in a stone was created for the week-end of art performance at 10/12, 4th may 2013

Face Liberty, TENT, december 2012

This performance followed the lecture  From Performing Arts to Art Performance , in the context of the event Peek in the TENT which was initiated by Madhuja Mukherjee and Avik Mukhopadyay. The conference started with some extracts of a poem of Eluard : « Liberty », the first poem which marked my relation with poetry. In relation to this poem, i proposed some action in homage to Aye Ko and other artists that i met two weeks before in Myanmar, and to Chaitali. This action was also in reaction to the space where i observed some paradox between the notion of « window » and bars.
I asked to someone in the audience to read aloud the poem « Liberty » of Paul Eluard, went behind bars/windows :  
1. To attach a wreath of flowers of jasmine at the first « window »/ bars 
2. To work with rubber bands around the face and tong
3. To push my body attached by an elastic attached to bars until the body detaches itself And trying to pronounce the word « Liberty » which comes back regulary in the poem of Paul Eluard. At the end, i came back to the audience space and i asked to a woman in the audience, Madhuja Mukherjee,to deliver the face from elastics.  
Thanks to Kunal Sen, Madhuja Mukherjee and Avik Mukhopadyay for the residency at TENT
