Insular Bodies

Film (D/GR, 23' – 2020)

“Insular Bodies” plays with materialities. What happens when we horizontalize human and biological, flesh and stone, wind, water and hair? “Insular Bodies” draws our attention to the wacky entanglements between the human and the non-human, the living and the non-living, and develops poetic images of an ecology that does not show hierarchies but rather approaches utopian scenarios of consonance.

“Bodies nestled tightly against the weathered stone look like beautiful nudes that one secretly wishes would not move at all and stand still to the gentle sounds of composer Brigitta Muntendorf.”
(Tanz, Arnd Wesemann)

“The film is the successful result of a creative break during the preparation for ARCHIPEL.”
(Tanz, Arnd Wesemann)
