Adaline Anobile: SEE THAT MY GRAVE IS KEPT CLEAN
There is a famous etching by Albrecht Dürer that represents the beginning of perspective drawing. It’s a strange image. A sensuous woman is lying on a table behind a grid. Facing her on the other side is a man attempting to reproduce what he sees on a surface in front of him, using the grid as a reference system to pinpoint, to measure, to see. Three elements from the etching are transposed into the performance space: the woman, the grid and the observer. These figures are the main protagonists of the project, but their roles are no longer as distinct as they may seem: materialized, geometry is contingent on matter, gaze is embodied, and bodies are prone to senses, emotions, thoughts and time. The figures touch and affect each other. Perspectives shift, friction appears.
