The theory of the compossible space is set into action in the artistic practice ‘HASENHERZ or the Pleasures of the Moving Image and Word’. ‘HASENHERZ’ is both a work of art and an instrument for examining artworks.
Drifting away my perception changes. I can only recognise parts of what I do, see, hear and experience. Only in a quiet, secluded environment can I enjoy this state of dizziness, because I can deliver myself into it.
HD-video and 3D-sound installation for the opening of the Economic Symposium at European Forum Alpbach.
A three-day programme with Austrian, Swiss, British, American, Danish, German, and Israeli artists and scientists at the CCA – Center for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv. 'Dizziness' is a condition of the body and/or the mind indicating a deviation from what has been so far conceived as normal or usual. As a condition, 'Dizziness' forces a re-rearrangement of the current navigational system. But how does one navigate the unknown?
How can we navigate together through states of destabilising dizziness? Can the loss of orientation provide creative momentum?
This book launch will feature Ruth Anderwald + Leonhard Grond, who will introduce the book and their eponymous artistic research project, and Sergio Edelsztein, collaborator of the artistic research 'Dizziness – A Resource'. In 2016 he co-hosted a three-day event at the CCA, where Maya M. Shmailov participated with a lecture.
