Shift, Whole Body Experience Fragments [1087 1091 1092 1096 1107 1126],2013-2015

HD Video, 9:38 min, Sound by Boris Kopeinig


A camera is focused on the details of a body and its internal dynamics. A body becomes actor. Corporealities that rub up against social and cultural concepts of body and corporeality – in terms of age and gender for instance – are introduced, visual codes of a normative body(image)production are undermined and re-configured.

An expedition. I explore, experiment with, and invent new ways of modifying the body in order to investigate them further. I contradict common images, pursue alternative options, operate with twists, reversals, subtle shifts. The body images are dancing. A space is created in which ideas of corporeality become corporeally tangible.
