Contemporary Performance

PartSuspended artist collective works in a variety of art forms and disciplines. The collective uses a range of performance practices to explore the intersection between artistic creation and various aspects of contemporary life. PartSuspended creates artistic work starting from personal experiences, everyday life, social space and architecture. The collective is particularly interested in feminist work that asks questions and challenges conventional boundaries and forms through artistic creation. PartSuspended’s work is multimedia, multilingual and multidisciplinary.

In 2006, Hari Marini co-founded PartSuspended as a dynamic platform on which to foster performances, live art, video-work, installations, writing, participatory workshops and collaborations with artists from a variety of disciplines. The collective has presented their work to a variety of venues and international festivals in the UK, Spain, Greece, Serbia, Czech Republic. Our work connects individual and collective creativities and helps imagine new possibilities for feminist action.
