Kyrahm + Julius Kaiser is an Italian artist couple based in Rome, with individual expertise in the fields of visual and performance art, video art, film and LGTB activism. Upon their encounter, they started the project Human Installations, a research comprising contemporary art, live art and avant-garde theatre. In a constant dialogue with cinema, they create works of video art, documentaries and films. Their interest lies on the social function of the artist, existential dynamics, the role of identity, and the experimentation along mental and physical limits and gender roles.

At the VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK, they present two live performances: 

ECCE (H)OMO, Guerrieri (2016): "With humbleness I joined these people to expose their bodies and souls, voluntarily presenting themselves and their lived lives. A mother without the right on her baby girl, a woman loving her girlfriend, the courage of the disabled and the pride of age and illness." Every intervention is inspired by a piece of video art in progress: stations of actions on human fragility that involve public performances, as well as intimate moments of the everyday. Written and directed by Kyrahm.

Human Installation I: Gender Obsolenscence (2010): The biological sex as skin. Gender as the sense of being. Path, crossing and transition. Every naked body a story. Distress is tiring, and the flesh is material to be shaped. The rite of dressing up as a turning backwards: the self is revealed. Written and directed by Kyrahm + Julius Kaiser.

Further Kyrahm and Julius Kaiser present on exhibit the performance film (A)mare Conchiglie (2015) and in presentation the short film by Claudio del Signore Drag king, Julia's Dream (2015) as well as the documentary Oltre il corpo (2016), featuring VestAndPage, Fioramanti, Kyrahm, Gonzalo Rabanal, Collettivo Cercle and Ron Athey.
