Video excerpt duration: 5:51
The video work Portrait of a Collective Body explores spatial scores, urban memories and bodies in transition, looking into social codes not only as a result of policies, legislations, and linguistic instructions but also as an outcome of disciplinary mechanisms that manifest through architecture’s embodied dynamics.
Performance & Installation, 2019
In the installation and performance How do you spell ‘together? presented in Jan van Eyck Academie, I focus on ways to identify and understand both somatic structures as existing within our bodies and social structures in which we are embedded. Visitors are drawn into the performance space being constrained by a tactile typeface – a series of shapes based on both corporeal dimensions and interior architectural elements of the building that both hinder their movement while allowing them to support each other. Spatial forms, architecture and the very presence of the audience constitute the performance, unfolding a moment-in-transition, in which spatial and temporal coordinates become a tangible collective experience. (Texts used during the performance are edit transcripts of the video-work).
