All That Dissolves Must Ascend

A group of performers recreates the mood in a techno club through improvisation and dance – a place that could perhaps be a space of total inclusion, because here the boundaries of individuality dissolve and everything loses itself in it. In the illusionary and liminal space of the theater and through the presentation of non-generic bodies, the limits of the representability of ecstasy and transcendentality are being investigated.

I studied video art with Mark Leckey and Douglas Gordon at the Städelschule in Frankfurt (Main) and currently live and work in Berlin. My work has been presented in international exhibitions: “RECORD > AGAIN!”, ZKM Karlsruhe (2009), “The indifference of Wisdom”, NURTUREart New York City (2013), “Risk Society”, MOCA Taipei (2013), “Showcase”, SPACE London (2018), “Offline Browser“, Hong-Gah Museum Taiwan (2018-2019), “Datami”, BOZAR Bruessels (2019-2020).
