The work shown at OpenART is a reflection of the sculptural movement piece that sculptor Josefina Posch and movement artist Minna Elif Wendin developed during 2014-2015. Wendin and Posch discovered interesting connections and interactions/contrasts in their practices, such as their tactile non-text based research methods within their respective fields where the actual making is central and the importance of the room and the public presentation – the meeting with the audience became a clear working method.

The movement revolves around mobility and rotation. The work glides into an investigation of time as a direction, where continuity is created through time that fades out. The sculptures as sensations of the body, cells, fibroblasts, surface/texture/material, time-aging, joints and movement. At the same time frozen in stillness and active as participating actors during the presentations where they interact with the movement artists.

At one point during OpenART a performance where movement, video and sculpture meet will be presented

The artist’s participation is supported by the Swedish Arts Council.
