NANA BILUŠ ABAFFY on her own work POST REALITY VISION
POST REALITY VISION
I want to know what my body is looking for when it dances. I’m interested in the visionary body, and the body as a vision. Of all the plethora of images and artefacts that we have created and consumed – to place in front of all of this the body – it’s so bare, it’s confusing. The confrontation of the body vs all the un-reality we’ve built – it is a disruptive reminder that the body is still here.
Why is it that we need the body now, in this era of post truth? It is as though its appearance here now is some kind of proof. The presentation of the body as evidence that reality still exists. The body is a totality. A multiplicity in unity. We think the body knows how the future will unfold. And is able to communicate more precisely than language. We work from the premise that the body is an entire hypercomplex universe, and that its thoughts are capable of envisioning massive alterities. We are looking for a vision.
