I don’t remember this body

Performance and Video Installation by Georg Blaschke and Jan Machacek

In the first collaboration of the Viennese choreographer Georg Blaschke with the media artist Jan Machacek, video art and choreography morph into a performative dialogue.
The main composition principles are loops and repetitions of movement sequences used to scan, measure and alienate both the familiar body and the familiar space. The interweaving of physical action with video images plays with phenomena of recognition, recollection, and re-interpretation of physical presence. The eye of the video-artist engaged with the physical experience and the projection of recorded images, which in turn instigated the performer to question the continuity of one’s own body.
Both artists are interested in the specific moment when borders are reached within their own medium and the ways, in which these boundaries initiate a response from the other.

For the opening of the new location of brut @ Zieglergasse in the 7th district of Vienna Blaschke, Machacek and their artistic team have createtd a completely new version of that collaboration.
