Rehearsal after Reflect Soft Matte Discourse #2, action (together with Clara López and Imri Sandström), EPISODE 2: A Special Form of Darkness, Tramway, Glasgow, G.B, February 25, 2012.
In May 2011 Arnell re-enacted Gina Pane's 1975 action, Discours mou et mat, in what came to be called Reflect Soft Matte Discourse. After the emotionally charged reaction provided by both audience and collaborators, Arnell decided to investigate into their experiences and asked 20 participants to answer six particular questions about the situation, as well as to share their feelings about that evening. The texts that Imri Sandström and Clara López wrote for this occasion later became part of the following performative reflection, Rehearsal after Reflect Soft Matte Discourse #1.
For EPISODE 2: A Special Form of Darkness, Arnell presented the second version of Rehearsal after Reflect Soft Matte Discourse. Included in the performance are video documentation from the action Reflect Soft Matte Discourse made by Ulrika Gomm.
