Apparent Extent and X Marks the Bökship present: Christian Jendreiko
Düsseldorf-based artist Christian Jendreiko is known for making actions with large ensembles of trained or untrained performers in novel, site-specific settings. Lasting anywhere between two and seven hours and featuring performers with musical instruments in nonhierarchical and improvisatory fashion. As a bookshop and publisher X Marks the Bökship is esspecially interested in Jendreiko’s actions, because they use written instructions as notation, handed out to actors and audience alike, bringing these usually seperated groups together in a social sculpture.
For the London premiere of DREAM/RE-DREAM, Christian Jendreiko, Volker Zander & Eleanor Vonne Brown will perform at X Marks the Bökship over the course of a day from midday into the evening. Guests and friends are invited to enter, circulate and remain at Bökship as long as they wish. A special Bökship edition of the action script will be prepared. Since 2007 Jendreiko’s actions have been performed in the UK at Arnolfini, Bristol and Eastside Projects, Birmingham and in various galleries and art institutions throughout Europe and the US. Jendreiko has also presented work internationally since 1999 as a founding member of Düsseldorf/London-based artist collective hobbypopMUSEUM.
