Mads Floor Andersen has, over a decade, developed a performance language of recycling, risk, breakage, destruction, ruins and being ‘response-able’* to his surroundings. He particularly explores the intimate relationship between body and environment and how they shape and affect each other. He primarily engages with the local and personal processes he works and lives within. Thus each work is experimental and open-ended – creating an unfolding dialogue between his body and his surroundings. Hence each work has its own specific constellation, while simultaneously touching upon social and ecological thoughts, theories and practices .
Mads Floor Andersen has presented his work internationally, such as at Belfast International Festival of Performance Art (BIFPA), Macau International Performance Art Festival, 20th Open Festival for Performance Art (China), Transart Communication (Hungary), Kalkota International Performance Art Festival (KIPAF), LAPSody (Helsinki), Month of Performance Art Berlin (MPA-B), International Festival of Performance Arts Copenhagen and many others.
In parallel to his solo work he also founded Nomadic Arts Festival and worked as an executive producer on Transart Communication 30. He is simultaneously an active core member of the artist-led collective Tracing the Pathway.
