I want to deepen my trans-disciplinary approach and bring the often still separated disciplines of sculpture and dance closer together. I want to further develop my research on posthuman discourses and analyze differences and similarities of german and japanese culture on the example of traditional dances. Thereby it's important for me to go a step further than just reconstructing old traditions, but develop a new hybrid form by interlacing these different approaches. By developing art for nonhuman recepients and understanding the occupation with otherness as a possible creative force, I hope to dismantle prejudices and fears towards the unknown.
Online meeting with TOKAS staff
I went deeper into the research around alien mating dances, discovering and defining more the power of mixing facts and fiction and playing with established codes and aesthetics, especially from social media, to create a very mixed but still specific artistic language. I developed quite a big collection of material, which I can definitely continue working with and unfold further into more complex constructions. In the future, I want to push the idea of understanding the developed artistic content as an open source and put it out into the world. I’m particularly interested in seeing how other people with different bodies and backgrounds interpret, and in this way also change my work. I would like to understand the work as a collective movement, therefore I would like to spread it more and involve more bodies and perspectives. Therefore the exchange with MIRA in Japan was very fruitful.
