M at City of Women

Game M devised at the residency at City of Women a new version of the game called M / Letters. Come play with us 🙂

Marjeta Kamnikar set on a quest to create M at her age of 67. It has been nine years since. M uses networking to find its place in City of Women and in the networking creates cracks where it continues to network and maybe gets in touch with some other network, some other family. Be watchful, maybe M entangles you into the network as well.

Marjeta Kamnikar is
the mother of three children, 30 years married, and has spent most of
her working life as a human resource officer. She was also a
successful bowler and a member of the Yugoslav nine-pin bowling team
at the World Championships in the 1980’s. In 2006 at the invitation
of her son Gregor (later Timon Jelen, Klemen Papež and Nelson
Valmor) she initiated an extensive M project. Thus far, M has been
realised in a form of a documentary meeting, a documentary
performance and a documentary installation. She is working on M as a
documentary play. She has also collaborated with Ryuzo Fukuhara
in his projects Ghost Among People (2010), My Neighbour (2009) and
The Four Elements (2008),
with Dragana Alfirević in the project Meta Level (2011), Teja Reba’s
performance 650 Experiences
(2011) and the project Life II (in Progress) by Janez Janša (2013–
).
