The performative act as main practice in video works.

The practice of perfomance in video art are with us since the early days when Bruce Nauman and Paul MacCarthy decided to stop doing live performances and instead recorded and edited their performances to produced their video installations. Video became the trasporter of live performances. But for this to happen they need to continue to bring the live performance aspect into the video piece.

Artists like Agassi Bangura, Guy Ben-Ner, Shana Moulton and Guido van der Werve are execellent protagonists of this practice in recent times. They manage to create such an aura of presence in their video works. Agassi F. Bangura and Shana Moulton do performe live sometimes. This artists do work in public spaces or settings and within a very intimate environment and situation as well. In most of the cases they produce, with theirs performative acts, what we could call "the event" .
