He wil also introduce his upcoming performance piece called ACTION IS GUILT - method to Rourke, intricate piece that touches on the notion of action in relation to performance, working with articulations and half articulations of what we understand as action as a form of knowledge.

When I have been working in residence at EIRA33 and ZDB - Ze Dos Bois Lisbon, this year for the creation of "When love melted cavalries in our hearts" which was supported by ColectivA - Cluj and Miki Braniste, I've produces a work that stood still like a split second in incomplete stunt, drawing on a neo-romantic paradigm where the experience does not happen while reading the work, its not about what happens on the paper, rather walking away from it.

I've been priviledged to access the best equipment, progressive eloquent designed props and Hollywood studio lights for this unique theory immersed performance - "Critique on how temples move faster than their shadows", hosted by the splendid Mihai Nicodim Gallery - L.A. to give a complete new perspective of this fabulous engagement.

Today I will perform on the humanity of a terrible love; a shared architecture, muscled by words and rude liberty, about ‘fixing of the body’ over the exterior milieu, with the heart poised above the gut, a constructed metaphor for the staticism of love, that sometimes you just have to tell the whole world about it.

CRITIQUE ON HOW TEMPLES MOVE FASTER THAN THEIR SHADOWS
December 11, 2010 – February 4, 2011
Mihai Nicodim Gallery, Los Angeles is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition and
performance in the US of artist Alex Mirutziu.


Alex Mirutziu is a Romanian artist whose practice extends over a wide range of media
and activities, including: writing, photography, media-critical video installations and
performance as well as various critical and curatorial projects. His work endows social
processes with ephemeral emergence as main constructs in an attempt to reconfigure
the relation between information and form, psychophysical language and content,
challenging origins and meaning. His most recent work implies a recuperation of the
subject between structured death and migration of suffering.

The exhibition opens Saturday, December 11, 2010 at Mihai Nicodim Gallery, 3143
S. La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90016, with a live performance of the artist
that starts at 7 PM.
