Many artists have side jobs in service industry, such as restaurants, to make ends meet. But where is the line between servant and performer?
Artists are often forced to have a side job for a minimum wage in addition to their artistic practice, and therefore often live with financial uncertainty – which has become particularly clear in light of the corona pandemic. Kunsten at tjene (The art of service) highlights and explores the art of the service industry by mixing the two different roles: the artist and the waiter.
Kunsten at tjene is a performance program at the museum café at Kvindemuseet i Danmark as part of Art Weekend Aarhus. Dressed in a classic waiter uniform, the three artists Lotte Bækgaard, PernillePoet and Tam Vibberstoft will interpret the waiter role.
The project is an interdisciplinary collaboration between the three artists Lotte Bækgaard, PernillePoet and Tam Vibberstoft, whose backgrounds are based on both visual art, performing arts, music and poetry. Depending on when the audience passes the cafe, you will experience performances such as Den Åndende Tjener (The breathing servant), Din tjener (Your Waiter) , din kunstner (your artist) og Den Kunstige Menu (The Artificial Menu).
