In her pro­ject Metamorphose (Metamorphosis), Taiwanese artist Ya-Wen Fu expe­ri­ments with dif­fe­rent tech­no­lo­gies and uses her body’s force as a medi­um for giving an object momen­tum. The per­for­mers meta­pho­ri­cal­ly embo­dy dif­fe­rent social roles. Motion sen­sors that are atta­ched to their bodies crea­te live sounds out of their body exten­si­ons’ move­ments. Starting from expe­ri­ments con­cer­ning the inter­de­pen­den­ci­es of speed and mass, the “per­fect” phy­si­cal swing path is dis­tur­bed by an exter­nal force. The objects are mutual­ly attrac­ted to each other and break. The per­for­mance reflects cur­rent ways of living—technologies deny us the right to trans­form, to be inert and to inter­pret 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.
