Dan Auluk is an artist-curator living and working in Birmingham, UK.
Auluk's arts practice is interested in the making of art activity (as medium) and the experiences shared through experimental collaborative approaches. The art activity includes experimenting with text, spoken word, sound, video, performance, participation and intervention, manifesting as live art collaborative performances that invite audiences to take part. This live art attempts to blur the boundaries betweeen artist, curator and audience, exploring alternate ways of activating spaces and audiences and destablizing the conventions we are used to, when experiencing art in an exhibition context.
Auluk will be working at Stryx for one month from 18th March to 15th April 2018.
During this time he will be re-working his closing 2017 residency at The WIG (now re-launched as FAIL BETTER). This was part of the GESTALT curatorial programme curated by Alex Billingham in 2017.
'We don’t talk anymore 2' will be a further exploration in making work with other artists’ and audiences to produce collaborative live performances. Communicating without talking to each other, blurring the lines between artist and audience, performance and spectatorship, activating audiences and disrupting the rules of exhibition making and presentation. There will be an opening launch on March 31st 6pm – 9pm and a closing live art performance at Digbeth First Friday on Friday 6th April 6pm – 9pm.
