Reusable Parts/Endless Love

Since 2003, the Los Angeles-based artists Gerard & Kelly have been working together to create installations and performance-based  works which question the formation of the couple and the critical  potential of intimacy. Honing in on the gaps between dance and language,  Reusable Parts/Endless Love and Timelining examine the shapes that our most intimate relationships take on.
With  their influences in minimalist dance, institutional critique and queer  theory, Brennan Gerard and Ryan Kelly develop work at the frontier  between dance and contemporary art, and in which text, video and  sculpture finds its place.
In Reusable Parts/Endless Love,  four performers “perform” the sound description of a kiss between a man  and a woman. Its inspiration lies in a performance by Tino Sehgal in  2010. This intimate and symbolic gesture is declined, repeated and  transmitted in a potentially unlimited loop. This in turn reveals the  mechanics of the act itself and sets forth a multitude of gender-related  combinations. After all, isn’t this love ritual a performance just like  any other?

Gerard, Brennan

Brennan Gerard and Ryan Kelly have collaborated since 2003 to create  installations and performances interrogating the formation of the couple  and exploring the critical potential of intimacy. Driven by an inquiry  of their own partnership, the duo uses choreography, language, video,  and sculpture to address questions of sexuality, memory and the  formation of queer consciousness.

Centre national de la danse, Réalisation

Since 2001, the National Center for Dance (CND) has been making recordings of its shows and educational programming and has created resources from these filmed performances (interviews, danced conferences, meetings with artists, demonstrations, major lessons, symposia specialized, thematic arrangements, etc.).
