Bahar Temiz (TR): In love

She now works for the first time solo in Kortrijk, creating In Love, a dance performance supported by objects and sculptures that intends to activate the potential sensitivity of the inanimate. The movement vocabulary is designed on the purpose of turning the body into a moving sculpture. Everything is visible, and even over visible. In this world of over exposure, we navigate from one scene to another by weightlessness proper to tactile experiences. How to make a tactile experience visible?

How to hide and reveal in a world of over exposure? How to make an image last over time?
