Fyodor’s Performance Carousel (2014), Fyodor Pavlov-Andreevich
Duration: Seven days
"Fyodor’s Performance Carousel" was a performance installation consisting of a carousel divided into nine parts installed at Faena Arts Centre in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The structure was designed by Andreevich and the architect Marko Brajovic. Nine performance artists were invited to each create a performance in their designated space. The carousel was turning with the help of three home-trainer bicycles positioned around the perimeter of the installation. The performances in the nine spaces of the carousel each went on all day for seven days. Some of the participating artists included: Chuyia Chia, Eloise Fornieles, Belen Romero Gunset, Andrés Knob, Bhagavan-David Barki de Lima, as well as Andreevich himself. Only 50 people were allowed inside the space every hour. Periodically, the carousel would stop, and if they chose to, the public was allowed to step inside and participate in the action happening in the spaces. In this way, the performance explored the dynamic between the artist, the art, and the public.
