Performance: Remembered Positions by Grace Schwindt

Join us for an afternoon performance of Remembered Positions (2019). The work considers conversations between the artist, during childhood, and her grandfather.

 

This performance-installation consists of a series of positions that the performer takes, each one representing a memory of a position in a story that Schwindt’s grandfather told her about the boxing matches he took as a prisoner of war in Tunisia during the Second World War. In addition to these memories he also spoke about his experience as a soldier, focusing on the soldier’s body from different perspectives and experiences.

 

The personal talks between grandfather and granddaughter are layered with ongoing conversations between Schwindt and different dancers about their experience of wounds and caring for their body in order to perform, all together forming the core of the artist’s latest piece which will premiere at the opening and that will be performed several more times for the duration of the exhibition.
