Lecture Performance und Talkonline
"Desecration of Descent" is a co-authored, ghost-written pulp novel released under the pseudonym Colt Jonner (BDP 2018), following the trials and tribulations of Johnson and Jensen, two young bffs facilitating an ascent of Mount Everest. In this performance-lecture, the artists present a slurry of excerpts exploring themes around self-annihilation, the vulgarity of ambition, and the role of cliché, genre, trope and affectation in the creation and reception of cultural production.
Trigger warning: graphic content!
Elif Saydam (lives in Berlin) and Vera Palme (lives in Frankfurt am Main) studied painting together at Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main. In 2018 they co-wrote the pulp thriller "Desecration of Descent" under the pseudonym Colt Jonner, published by Broken Dimanche Press. Together they have performed at Berlin Art Week, Schloss Balmoral (Bad Ems), The Cologne Art Book Fair (Cologne), Kunstverein Nürnberg Albrecht Dürer Gesellschaft (Nürnberg), among others. Their respective paintings were included in the group exhibition "Lose Enden" at Kunsthalle Bern, 2021.
