What the Body Does Remember


In «What The Body Does Remember»synthetic memories and personal memories and experiences are intertwined into a type of auto drama for the performer in relation to the specific site. Then is just another kind of now; different memories get uncovered when she constantly visits these as re-tellings and bodily deposits.
Through a week on Iceland this project was shown at the Cycle Art Festival 2015 as a unique work-in-progress showed for an equally unique audience.
