»Beyond the Ring«
Series #5 / Artist Talk Nº7
You are cordially invited to attend the 7th talk in the 5th series of ‘Beyond the Ring’ with Phelim Hoey.
‘Beyond the Ring’ is an informal set of artists’ talks / presentations / performances by international artists based in Berlin and visiting artists passing through. ‘Beyond the Ring’ is there to provide the opportunity for people to meet and share their thoughts, ideas and work. If you’re interested in joining in, you will see that there is life Beyond the Ring in Berlin.
Autonomy and independence are considered important in western society, and are often a big part of one’s identity. In my case, being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, it is no longer self-evident that the body carries out actions, sometimes not even the simplest. These experiences lead to alienation and an instrumental vision towards the body. With the loss of the certainty of a functioning body, the identity is also compromised.
Who I am, and how the disease influences my identity is something I’ll research the coming year. The project will consist of a personal diary, motion studies, films and sculptures. This project is supported by Mondriaan Fund (NL).
