Myrthe van der Mark & Joachim Badenhorst
On the opening night,Myrthe van der Mark, in collaboration with Joachim Badenhorst, will examine the Mazdaznan's breathing exercises in at this height, but not yet in its fullness (STUK). The work, in its installation version is afterwards included in the exhibition, and is part of an ongoing investigation into metamorphosis. Van der Mark links the theme of transformation to the notion of ecstasy. She zooms in on the frequencies at which elements vibrate and the energy that is absorbed, transmitted or transformed. The focus lies on body-related rituals, singing with rhythmic movements and various bodily cleansing procedures.
