Eszter Salamon
Tales of the Bodiless

  • Fri 20.01.12 20 h

In ›Tales of the Bodiless‹ artist Eszter Salamon tells of a world without human bodies. In her four stories of immaterialness, other forms of existence come to the fore: it might be dogs, who dare to evolve without human intervention, or it might be unknown bodiless forms of existence that are trying out new ways of insemination. Salamon opens up a complex audio-cosmos using a virtuoso composition of sounds, light, space and voices in which well-known apocalyptic visions combine with new ideas. The audience becomes the last ›bodied‹ spectators in a world in which visual perception dissolves into an acoustic event.
