White Flow // Performance-art Alexandra Gneissl // DE
Sat 2. September // 22 h // Festival center L1 // Admission free // Afterwards chill-out
The shower-performances-series connects two artistic aspects. The body is simultaneously starting point, material, and medium. It joins the primeval medium of painting, colour (gold, black, white). The colours stand for their inherent qualities and, at the same time, they arouse very subjective feelings in the spectator. In »White Flow« the artist tries to give expression to the »flow« – the state of highest relaxation and concentration during meditation – with the colour white. »The ›flow‹ corresponds with the strongest feeling of happiness I have known by now. In this state the emotions start to flow on the body surface.« (Gneissl)
