During IMPACT13 Vlatka Horvat presents ›In the Balance‹ her latest performance work investigating physical action and human presence in relation to objects. Teasing out the complex dynamics between the body and objects within a delineated spatial frame, the piece touches upon questions of balance and imbalance, equivalence and difference, by employing gestures of mirroring, repetition, action and reaction – producing a set of interactions between body and objects that are at once humorous and disconcerting. The performance is followed by a conversation with the artist.
