Zuki Ringart: Another form of the living thing – Degree Bachelor/Master
BA Graduate Works 2022
Our body is inseperable from the previous bodies that we were.
And like any other material of nature, it is constantly doomed to be changed, affected and developed by the time, the space and the events in which it exists.
Past snippets, they cause movements of change.
Memory drops are dripping and being absorbed –
Becoming part of the body in its present progressive.
The body remembers and becomes memories in form of other bodies.
How many defining and transforming memories does it contain?
And if these memories exist within us – if the past is dancing within us now, maybe the now is also happening in our future?
In the performance-installation ‚another form of the living thing‘, a mother and her son are going to seek for cross generational physical memories. Together with sound and other matters in the space, they invite the audience to participate in a sacral - corporeal - trippy journey.
A journey towards the embodiment of the eternal body that we all might be.
