covidi (conviviality validated in designed interactions) is an art residency in response to covid-19. since everyone was ‘asked’ to be home, i try to find myself at home in the house i am dwelling in. while everyone needs to be sheltered and recluse in a bubble, at my house i found bubbles within the bubble: invisible borders that build up bridges of behaviour. this art residency sheltered the birth of two artworks which are being now presented to Tempo Dance Festival:
| fortune furniture | is a series of 10’ dance videos. intimate portraits. short pieces of the bridges i’m, at times, building up or breaking down. are bridges a uniting device or marks of the separation? fragments of image, sound, language translation and movement pull together micro-worlds of an invented reality.
| on[e]line story | is a participatory video-performance that invites people across the world to engage in the act of embodied writing. a choreography of handwriting. an attempt to follow invisible bridges - touch, language translation, dance, text. finding togetherness through a common act: writing an online one-line story.
