An performative installation
Shown at the graduation show 2022 of St Joost class of €524.988,07. An environment created to show the grainy, smooth, glossy, sleek, raw objects made from (mostly) ceramics and textiles, all there to be touched, to relate to the body. They fit over belly’s, arms, on heads, behind backs, they can hang, they can weigh, they can be caressed, and vingers can go through them. The surfaces are inviting you to caress. When you take the invitation, your hand can glide over the smooth surfaces, dents, and crevices, exploring each detail and differences in balance and weight. Sometimes the surfaces have soft interruptions, sometimes they’re rougher, either in the ceramics or textile. Will you take the invitation to be involved?
The installation was for the audience, to play and research their surroundings and their own bodies. The performances were carried out to show the specific actions the objects were created for. This way we were all free to play.
Our body and that
HOLY COW, I'M ALIVE!
