Pity Dust by Madison Bycroft and Angelica Falkeling
Madison Bycroft is an Australian artist based in Adelaide, Australia and Rotterdam. Angelica Falkeling is a Swedish artist based in Rotterdam. Their collaborative practice began in 2016. Their work investigates the apparatuses of the theater as structures of power – curtains and instruments have as much agency as human actors. At 18th Street Arts Center, they will create a new performance through a portable structure to work with/through the idea of a nomadic, unending tour. They seek to undo the idea of the event- via the suitcase or backpack, the work bleeds into its future iterations.
Bycroft is a facilitator of GHOST, an artistic platform in the Netherlands founded in 2016. She has exhibited work in Australia, Europe, and North America, and she is a shortlisted artist for the 2019 Future Generation Art Prize. She earned an MFA (2016) from Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam, the Netherlands; two Bachelors of Visual Arts (2011, 2013) from the University of South Australia; and a Bachelors of Visual Arts (2008) from Coker College in South Carolina.
Falkeling is a facilitator of Tender Center, a feminist queer art and community space in Rotterdam, since 2018. They have exhibited work in Sweden, the Netherlands, and Italy, among others, with a recent show in Poland. They earned an MFA (2017) from Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam, the Netherlands and a BFA (2014) from Malmö Art Academy, Malmö, Sweden.
