Bio
German artist VERENA STENKE and Venetian artist and writer ANDREA PAGNES have been working together since 2006 as VestAndPage, generating art in the mediums of live performance, filmmaking and writing, and as independent curators. Their practice is contextual, process-led, situation-responsive and conceived psycho-geographically in response to natural surroundings, social contexts, historical sites or architecture, hence unrepeatable and subdue to the given conditions. Their artistic research focuses on the poetics of relations and examines notions of perception, reality, communication, fragility and failure of the individual and the collective within social or environmental spheres. Exploring what, as human beings, we still have to offer, VestAndPage question our existence within a humanity characterized by social exclusion and global atrocities. Animated by a nomadic, confrontational spirit, they apply the themes of acceptance, resistance, endurance and union with a poetic bodily approach to art practice.
Their works have been produced and presented internationally in a variety of sites, museums and galleries, and have been described as transfixing, confronting, spellbinding, humble, uncomfortable, carrying fresh iconography, cathartic, visceral, liminal, otherworldly, shamanic, tensional, silent, delicate or mysterious.

Initiators and independent curatorial force behind projects such as the live art exhibition project "Venice International Performance Art Week" (2012/2014) and the ongoing global art initiative "FRAGILE global performance chain journey" (since 2010), they collaborate with international theatre companies, cultural institutions and humanitarian organizations in production and education, presenting lectures and methodological workshop series.

Their theoretical texts and their book "The Fall of Faust - Considerations on Contemporary Art and Art Action" (2010) investigate the intimate tissue of creativity, questioning performance art as an urgency.
