As a child I was often observing my feet at the very end of my body. It was amazing: these two limbs down there belong to me! Those moments sometimes return these days. Far away, so close.
his artistic work, Hannes Wurm enters a new field: dance. There, he focuses
on questions regarding the imagination of body and space.
By little shifts of perspectives he tries to open up new ways of perception and thinking. In far away, so close the performer’s feet, which are the parts of his body furthest from view, come into focus: they become his counterpart. They appear on stage simultaneously: in unity with the dancer and as a video image separated from him. By linking these two images space becomes the condition of unity and difference, closeness and distance, affiliation and separation, subject and object, concept and body. The performance is framed by Sigmund Freud’s essay The ‘Uncanny’, first published in 1919 and Cornershops Brimful of Asha from 1997, a tribute to the Indian dancer and playback singer Asha Bhosle, interpreted by Andreas Hamza.
Sensual approximation. Moments of a rational touch. Turn around. Music.
