Circuit, 2022Performance and installation at Celsius Projects, Malmö SE
In the performance, the handling of the thread suggests a relation between the body and greater circuits of the economy and global infrastructure. The work reflects on scale and alienation under capitalism. What are the options for human agency and sense of responsibility in the greater systems and circuits that extend beyond the reach of the human body?The props for this performance take the shape of industrial machinery. Metallic looking parts with lines of thread running through them.Threads become the circuits of a machine, local and global maps, development of the textile industry, production chains and economic infrastructure, circulation of money as capital and the flow of rivers and weather systems. ‘Circuit’ traces the flow of large and abstract structures from a place of the tangible and intimate.
