Tears (dynamic storage) is a performance by Mimosa Echard and Aodhan Madden developed especially for the Fridericianum. Structured around various mutations of “Flow, my tears,” John Dowland’s sixteenth-century Baroque “ayre,” the artists collage footage from Echard’s hard drive with karaoke videos, experimental pop music, and improvised live elements. Tears is a direct continuation of the artists’ previous collaborative videos Miami (after Barbara Strozzi) and La Clède, both investigations into humidity, “humanity,” emotion, and artifice.

Mimosa Echard (*1986 in Alès, lives and works in Paris) studied at the École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Paris. Her work has been featured in solo exhibitions at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2022); Collection Lambert, Avignon (2021); and Galerie Chantal Crousel, Paris (2021).

In 2022, Echard was awarded the Prix Marcel Duchamp.

Aodhan Madden (*1994 in Melbourne, lives and works in Paris) is a writer, artist, and musician. Their works have been shown or published in Matto Magazine, Paris (2022); Gaudel de Stampa, Paris (2020); and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney (2019), among others. Madden’s first LP, How I Made the Alien Invasion Work for Me, was released in 2022.
