A TRANS feat. BIRGIT KJÆRSGAARD | Verdensrum, Japan:Ryōkai Resist
13. Januar 2018 @ 19:00 - 21:00
For many years, the Danish architect Birgit Kjærsgaard has investigated the reception of the symbolic systems and metaphors of Asian cultures.
Verdensrum, Japan:_Ryōkai Resist is a unique 3D installation based on a Japanese meditation ritual and the Japanese idea that spirits are alive in nature. It unites Asian spiritual teachings and philosophy with expressive (Butoh dance) performance, film, sound, and contemporary 3D-technology.
Every culture has its own sense of time, which is related to myth and history as well as to daily experience and existence as such. This installation calls for a decelerated mode of reception. Interpreted here artistically is an Eastern tradition and philosophy that focuses on thought processes. In the case of Butoh dance, thought and movement are positioned on the same plane, spirit and body come together in harmony. United here in a contemporary staged context are an ancient Japanese meditation ritual (kept alive by the monks of Kōyasan Mountains, located south of the megacity Osaka) and the power of Butoh dance.
As an explorer of consciousness, the beholder becomes a participant in a journey through landscape, mind, and space.
