Between Zones. On the Representation of the Performative and the Notation of Movement
The aims of this anthology are twofold. On the one hand, it is intended to consolidate and document the exhibitions «While Interwoven Echoes Drip into a Hybrid Body – An Exhibition about Sound, Performance and Sculpture» (21 January to 26 March 2006) and «While Bodies Get Mirrored – An Exhibition about Movement, Formalism and Space» (6 March to 30 May 2010), both of which were dedicated, in different ways, to exploring the possibilities of documenting time-based works of art. On the other, it aims to outline the theories that underpin these issues. In short, this is an experiment in discussing the various ways in which disciplines that are fixed in time, such as sculpture and installation, or technologically reproducible media, such as film and photography, relate to time-based fields of art that are performative in character, such as dance, performance and sound, in diverse combinations. The focus is on the areas created by these overlaps, and the art that is produced as a result.
