Embodied Perception

Olivia Burgess (US/FR)

Through video, dance and poetic storytelling, this instillation calls for the interrogation of reality. Reality is built from perception, the sensorial experience of our orientation towards different objects, people and places. This work encourages us to question the power structures that have historically exploited the promise of scientific objectivity and disempowered the body to their own end. An invitation to uncover alternate and unmediated realities through the moving body in space.
