Tris Vonna-Michell

Tris Vonna-Michell stages installations and performs narrative structures, using spoken word, sound compositions, film and photography. Through live performances and installations, Vonna-Michell creates circuitous, multilayered narratives, characterized by fragments of information, detours, and repetitions. In 2010 together with Diana Kaur he founded Mount Analogue, a publishing space, curatorial and editorial agency: www.mountanalogue.org Recent solo exhibitions include: Punctuations & Perforations, La Verriere, Brussels (2017); Register, T293, Rome (2016); Presentation House Gallery, Vancouver (2015); Turner Prize 2014, Tate Britain, London; Capitol Complex, TPW, Toronto; VOX, Centre de l’image contemporaine, Montreal (2014); Postscript II (Berlin), Jan Mot, Brussels (2013); Ulterior Vistas, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead (2012).

For his Munich event Vonna-Michell will mix film screenings with live performance and discussion to investigate notions of longevity, ephemerality and documentation within a visual arts context.
