My eye candy, my somatic fiction and my body archive
“To me the body is a cultural and a political archive. It is an archive that contains images, narratives and practices in it.” Paul B. Preciado
How do we see, feel and control our bodies? What does the privacy of my body mean? We have a normative image of bodies, or even worse, we have ideal images of bodies, beautiful ones and healthy ones, gendered ones. Our perception of the world is based on our bodies, our joy, our pain. The aim of the exhbition is to reflect on these phenomena, we experience every day, with animated theatrical and improvisational elements focusing on materiality and sound. We invite the visitors for a journey to reflect on and investigate body perception and narratives around bodies. The exhibition is the continuation of the workshop series Archive B. researching bodies and different ways of performing.
The exhibition is a result of a three week intensive rehearsal period.
