In her pro¬≠ject Metamorphose (Metamorphosis), Taiwanese artist Ya-Wen Fu expe¬≠ri¬≠ments with dif¬≠fe¬≠rent tech¬≠no¬≠lo¬≠gies and uses her body‚Äôs for¬≠ce as a medi¬≠um for giving an object momen¬≠tum. The per¬≠for¬≠mers meta¬≠pho¬≠ri¬≠cal¬≠ly embo¬≠dy dif¬≠fe¬≠rent social roles. Motion sen¬≠sors that are atta¬≠ched to their bodies crea¬≠te live sounds out of their body exten¬≠si¬≠ons‚Äô move¬≠ments. Starting from expe¬≠ri¬≠ments con¬≠cer¬≠ning the inter¬≠de¬≠pen¬≠den¬≠ci¬≠es of speed and mass, the ‚Äúper¬≠fect‚ÄĚ phy¬≠si¬≠cal swing path is dis¬≠tur¬≠bed by an exter¬≠nal for¬≠ce. The objects are mutual¬≠ly attrac¬≠ted to each other and break. The per¬≠for¬≠mance reflects cur¬≠rent ways of living‚ÄĒtechnologies deny us the right to trans¬≠form, to be inert and to inter¬≠pret reality.

The art space opens on Friday (5 November 2021) and Saturday (6 November 2021) from 15:00 to 21:00 and on Sunday (7 November 2021) from 15:00 to 19:00.
