Heterotopia Corporali

Video from Dania Burger on Vimeo.

For the exhibition „Freigänger”, Burger has developed an installation in the cell assigned to her. It will serve as a stage for a new performance Heterotopia Corporali. Throughout the exhibition, she will move and dance in the cell, explore the space, and react to the entering visitors.

Her intention in this performative work is to explore and experience the external space in connection to the coinciding perception of her inner space of feelings. How will her way of experiencing this space influence her psychological state? Which new insights will she gain by this performative self-experiment? How will the narrow and connoted space influence her interactions with the visitors? This piece will circulate around these questions - and those arising during the process.
