Mjuk polygon, elastisk polyeder – ett rörelseexperiment mellan konkav och konvex / SOFT galleri / Oslo (NO) 2018

 

Mjuk polygon, elastisk polyeder – ett rörelseexperiment mellan konkav och konvex” is a physical body in the gallery space, encased inside a textile membrane that is attached to a rectangular frame on the wall via an elastic tube. The choreography of the dancer inside the membrane is languid and repetitive, causing the piece to appear more as an animated elastic sculpture or a performative still life. The elastic material is slick white and thus acts like an extension of the gallery space and when enfolding the body, an extension to our most natural boundary – skin.

The work is being activated three times a week during the opening period.

Duration: 2 hours per session

Performed by Wanda Breistrand and Marte Bjørneth Kristoffersen


Material: Stretch lame, neoprene, stretch mesh, polystyrene, textile tube-system, construction wood
