Un-Splitting

2019

The performance features 15 performers from different ages, genders and art backgrounds. Taking place in unannounced spots on the first floor of the MMCA.

The artist focuses on the female body-pose found in photo archives that reflect the inferiority of women’s labour in domestic spaces as well as in textile factories. These poses are combined with patterns from irregular movements of birds, developing unique choreography.

Splitting, in psychology, is a symptom of Borderline Personality Disorder, defined as polarisation of other persons into good and bad by focusing selectively on their positive or negative attributes. ‘Un-Splitting’ addresses the tendency of splitting as a case of exclusivity and extreme objectification towards ‘otherness’ as being rooted in symptoms of illness in society.
