ISIL SOL VIL x MARINA BARSY JANER
Performance artists that encountered; coming from worlds as diverse as Latin America and Europe, the “masculine” and the “feminine”. Their individual practices converge, to understand art, as an act of transgression.
Their transgressive act is evidenced and manifested through the interweaving of their own psyches, bodies, sensorial experiences and eXtreme affectivities, thereby eliminating the dual concept of the Self. Through the mimetic, a path is traced towards the destruction of the ego, and the appearance of the anonymous being, disinherited from any individual or differential title. They understand mimesis, not as imitation, but as a path towards the deconstruction of the modern notion of the (neoliberal) individual.
Their artistic practice takes the corporeal mimesis to the eXtreme, in a specific space and in a given environment. They explore alternative sensitivities that challenge the imposed historical chronologies while suppressing the male/ female dichotomy. Their pieces are framed by the need to establish a single connection and body rhythm of pure listening. They are not two bodies, they are not two artists; they are the body in a space, in a time and in a presence. Their point of union, as vanishing point, is a constant pulsation where the plural presence of the body, the border destruction and the decolonisation of the mind-body is an act of rebellion and subversion.
