Island

Johannes Zits

Festivals: M:ST 7 Biennial | September 26 - October 11, 2014.

Island is a new work that uses, sand, stones and water to investigate our relationship with the earth.  Using an approach that is poetic and self-reflexive rather than didactic or dramatic, my point of departure is informed by history, current events and a life lived. This piece explores the way the body relates to physical environments and how this reverberates into the psycho-social spaces inhabited. The conceptual point of departure for this work was to consider the land as a body, one that is alive, vulnerable, and as socially contextualized as our own.
