As part of Transpositions, the crowning event of Performance as Process residence programme by Delfina Foundation, London, Alex Mirutziu conducted research into the work of designer / typographer Margaret Calvert and Jock Kinnear, alongside his interest and commitment to the poetry of Graham Foust for a new performance which has been premiered on June the 7th within the premisses of the foundation.
Alex Mirutziu was joined by Joshua Hubbard for his performance, Stay[s] against confusion. Alex also showed a video piece Where is the poem (2013) in the Delfina library alongside a video work by Stephen entitled Into It (2013). Mirutziu’s engagement with Delfina Foundation was driven by a key question within his practice; ‘what performs?’
Stay[s] against confusion project was developed with the co-operation of Delfina Foundation's operative team lead by director, Aaron Cezar: Dani Burrows, Jane Scarth, Poppy Litchfield, Gillean Dickie, Eleanor Scott, Jacob Wilson. Most importantly this project gently inscribes itself into the generous, dearing and unique approach to art that Delfina Entrecanales nurtured and supported over many decades.
