Extension/Point of Touch: collaborative visual performance

Agnieszka Karasch, Jaanika Peerna (Performer), Hector Canonge (Curator)

Research output: Artistic and non-textual formPerformanceArt in coproductionpeer-review


Using pre-selected actions, having variables of speed and pressure at their disposal and working in accordance with the "initial-image principle" Agnieszka and Jaanika drew on the paper surface stretched on the floor. They tested ‘point-of-touch’ – a strategy of body connection - to impose own will, mark own terrain, relocate, shift and widen the rigid structures of the image. Seismographic drawing became a record of their physical and visual relocations of two defined personalities within an imposed coexistence system.
