Olympia Carved Torso -  A Drama In Five Acts.

A looping performance from photo-stills 2010.

With the Olympic buzz in the air, I often come to think about states, and flags, and the feelings that the exercise of physical competition inspires.                                            

In the commonality between the ancient and modern Olympic sports the games were in many ways and still are a political tool used by city-states to assert dominance over their rivals: an event where the elite body, male and female prominence is exposed in its most sublime form.

This work is often built on a range of visual and symbolic models, borrowing from the formal language and color composition of Bauhaus and Constructivism. In her photo series Twosome (2009) Olympia Carved Torso -  A Drama In Five Acts 2010, a free-moving construction of performers combine wood boards in different compositions, questioning the extent in which personal space is technically conditioned.

More concretely connected to the body are the choreographic videos Twosome and Olympia Carved Torso - A Drama in Five Acts, Kristine Hymøller. This move figures are given geometric shapes. These dancers are reminiscent of the aesthetics of Bauhaus and Constructivism.
