Performing the Spectator - on the performativity of looking
‘Performing the Spectator - on the performativity of looking’ is a research project by interdisciplinary artist Annelieke Holland, developed within the framework of the master's program Artistic Research in and through Cinema at the Netherlands Film Academy. Through an experiment-driven approach, the research operates at the intersection of theatre, film and expanded cinema. 'Performing the Spectator' explores ways we look and perceive each other.
Through various works, Annelieke revisits intimate relationships, memories, personal archives and cultural sites for spectatorship, all through the lens of giving and receiving gazes. By doing so, she questions the internalised male gaze, image construction and family dynamics, among others. At the same time, the research draws inspiration from the theatre, where attentive observation goes back and forth.
