›Ornement‹ goes to the borderlines between inside and outside, the visible and the hidden, substance and memory.
The dividing lines blur and disintegrate in the porous bodies of Vania Vaneau and Anna Massoni and allow space for a choreography of transformation. Held in constant change, the physical expression between crystallisation and liquefaction becomes material for alternating states of aggregation. Vaneau and Missoni engage constantly with the objects that surround them. The supposed passive setting becomes a player of equal status. As they interact, fascinating landscapes engaging all the senses unfold. ›Ornement‹ allows patterns to be recognised, gestures to be exposed, like fragments of prehistoric history that the performers register in the here and now: skin becomes decoration, hands and eyes become jewels – become ornaments.
