RUDOLF AND THE SCHWARZKOGLERS ARE A PERFORMANCE COLLECTIVE FORMED BY THE ARTISTIC TRIO PARICE BOWYER, KAYLEN FORSYTH AND NICOLE STIFF.

HOW MANY SCHWARZKOGLERS DOES IT TAKE TO CHANGE A LIGHT BULB ?

“[WE] TEND TO TAKE THINGS PRETTY LITERALLY, SO FOR US IT WOULD BE ABOUT ELECTRICITY/POWER SOURCES. WE COULD PERFORM A SERIES OF MUNDANE EVERYDAY HOUSEHOLD ACTIONS, PERHAPS A WIDER COMMENT ON THE CURRENT ENERGY CRISIS THROUGHOUT THE UK, BUT ALSO A COMMENT ON THE ABSURDITY OF THE CAPITALISATION OF BASIC HUMAN NECESSITIES.”

AFTER MARINA ABRAMOVIC, RHYTHM 0, 1974

“HUMAN BEINGS ARE AFRAID OF VERY SIMPLE THINGS: WE FEAR SUFFERING, WE FEAR MORTALITY. WHAT I WAS DOING IN RHYTHM 0—AS IN ALL MY OTHER PERFORMANCES—WAS STAGING THESE FEARS FOR THE AUDIENCE: USING THEIR ENERGY TO PUSH MY BODY AS FAR AS POSSIBLE. IN THE PROCESS, I LIBERATED MYSELF FROM MY FEARS. AND AS THIS HAPPENED, I BECAME A MIRROR FOR THE AUDIENCE—IF I COULD DO IT, THEY COULD DO IT, TOO.” 

- WALK THROUGH MIRRORS: A MEMOIR, MARINA ABRAMOVIC

INSIDE THAT SKULL

“WHICH OF US, WHICH OF US IS BLESSED WITH THE CHOICE OF WHEN WE ARRIVE? WHEN WE LEAVE? WHEN WE’RE INSIDE THE WOMB, DID WE MAKE IT SO? DID WE RENT OUT THAT PROPERTY ON PURPOSE? DID WE TAKE OUT A MORTGAGE ON OUR MOTHER?”

- INSIDE THAT SKULL, KAYLEN FORSYTH
