A Pop-up Group Movement | VAV – Moving Image
Department Project for Rietveld Uncut @ Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, 2018
“Who is the artwork? A choir of bodies, holding hands, gesticulating, from head to toe, using your device as an ear, voyeurism, watch and being watched, a snapchat – intervention, a pop-up sharing of intimate flesh, awakening dead flesh, private scenes, whispering voices, blood bending, professional hugging, sticking together, analogue touch, hilarious things, furry stuff, tactile départ.”
11 performers, all being lead by an 2 hour “soundtrack” (juxtaposed of commands and songs & composed by all performers) through headphones, following the soundtrack to the fullest. Dancing & sweating. All wearing clothing from the warmer part of the colour spectrum and having fake tattoos sticked onto their bodies.
