When dizzy we cannot distinguish between inside and outside.
One can induce dizziness by engaging in dis­orientating activities such as spinning. Disequilibrium is the sensation of being off balance and is most often characterized by frequent falls in a specific direction.
When we are not looking, the world is acting completely crazy. But as soon as we turn around, it pretty much acts as normal.
Can dizziness be a resource? What remains from states of precariousness, uncertainty, disorientation, intoxication or exhilaration? Particularly now, in these times of invocations of global crisis, these questions are more relevant than ever. The exhibition ‘Dizziness. Navigating the Unknown’ locates dizziness in artistic creativity, finding it in situations of unbalance, confusion, disorientation
The contribution of Ruth Anderwald + Leonhard Grond to the cross-genre project “Instruction for Use” shows first visual findings of their occupation with dizziness/Taumel.
