In the frame of Thomas Oberender / Tino Sehgal: Welt ohne Außen. Immersive Spaces since the 1960s. On Laura Burns‘ Workshop: Under the Tongue. 01.07.2018, Martin Gropius Bau, Berlin.
Beckoning in, through the iron crystal forest and lake of lava, through the bedrock, and layers of earth where all the history is, to the airier ground of topsoil, and out the surface. One of the few times I have ever allowed an authentic somatic experience to move me was during Laura’s sounding workshop, when the tremors from the core of the earth spread into the rest of my body – it’s a question of trust… or is it a question of belief? We know that sound travels quickly over water. Vertebrae: trust worth’s the breath the effort. A thin thread’ll keep me connected.
