“NO. 10: PARADOX INTERVENTIONS – BETWEEN PERFORMANCE AND INTERACTION”
Statement
The project “No.10: Paradox Interventions – between Performance and Interaction”, functions as a polyphonic, transdisciplinary, multicultural laboratory which deals with artists from working with different media. It starts from film interventions, performances and performative installations, on to interventions with painting and contemporary dance. This also includes searching for new interventions with experimental electronic music and visual arts, content art- and fashion photography.
The aim of my work is the integration of different theoretical approaches from systems theory (Niklas Luhmann) and performance (Erika Fischer-Lichte) to my own artistic work. By influencing different directions through interdependencies new emergences are created. Neither is this project dealing with a complete choreography for a dance piece nor a classical styled photo shooting. My work tries to focus on the interface where all disciplines in each single project meet, overlap and build a grey zone which has not been much defined before.
