3-channel performance-video, sound, 42 min
Inside this Liminal phase, we can change our identities and our governments. We exist in between the life we lived before and the life we will live after... whenever after comes. Still, the lasting effects on our psyche and social behaviors are still unknown. The only thing we know is that we miss touching another body, we miss our own bodies which could rebel! We are looking for the place of healing through movement together.
THE BOUNDARIES BETWEEN US HAVE DISSOLVED. THE LENS REPLACES YOUR EYE, INITIATING AND SUSTAINING CONTACT.
Liminal is a performance-based video work which translates the diverse states of our psychic and physical being during the Covid-19 pandemic into a digital exhibition. Conceived in early 2021 as a website to allow the public to virtually enter the three rooms of Villa Massimo in Rome without restrictions, this October, at Casa Artelor in Timișoara, the work is presented for the first time as a 3-channel installation available for in-person public viewing.
