שש בשנקר: Dizziness–A Resource
24/12/19 18:00 - 19:30 מבנה התואר השני - חדר 609 // אנה פרנק 12, רמת גן
How can we navigate together through states of destabilising dizziness? Can the loss of orientation provide creative momentum?
The artistic research Dizziness–A Resource defined dizziness as an unpredictable movement, or the sensation of such motion, causing a shift from the given to the uncertain. Dizziness was established as a sensory (vestibular, proprioceptive, interoceptive) and mental phenomenon that destabilises, and evokes a moment of surprise, or even aporia. Whether frightening turmoil or enjoyable ilinx by becoming dizzy, we enter a stage of instability and vulnerability.
The ensuing feelings of uncertainty mark our interaction with our environment.
Ruth Anderwald + Leonhard Grond, Vienna
In 2014 visual artists and artistic researchers Ruth Anderwald + Leonhard Grond started their cross-disciplinary artistic-research project Dizziness–A Resource. With Katrin Bucher Trantow, chief curator of Kunsthaus Graz, they developed a series of exhibitions, Dizziness. Navigating the Unknown, Kunsthaus Graz (2017), Utrata równowagi, U-jazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art, Warsaw (2018), and Dizziness. Navigating on Common Ground? is scheduled to open Nov 2020 at the National Museum of Contemporary Art Bucharest, Romania. Together with their long-time collaborator, philosopher Karoline Feyertag, they edited their latest publication Dizziness–A Resource, Sternberg Press. With regard to this artistic research the Vienna based artist duo will speak about their latest projects and present their recent publication with contributions of by artists, researchers from experimental sciences as well as cultural studies, and philosophers who trace dizziness not only as a phenomenon of physiological, emotional, and cognitive processes but highlight the transversal nature of the phenomenon.
