“Show Your Wound” is a choreographic and sonic performance by Ana Lessing Menjibar that exposes the emotional and physical fragility of the human body in a near-posthuman world. In dialogue with musicians Philipp Kullen and Nikola Pieper, the artist interweaves bodies, worlds of sound and language into a performance that examines the poetic potential of various physical states, from formal to ecstatic. In her deconstruction of traditional flamenco, she works with sculptural objects as an extension of her dance practice to investigate questions about wounds and healing, the collective body, and processes of transformation.
The dance performance will extend across the exhibition space and enter into a dialogue with the sculptures and installations by Vera Kox. The works of the two artists share an innovative and experimental approach that considers the body as fluid and examines the dissolution of the boundaries between matter/body and the environment.
