As part of the parcour for the B3 Biennial of the Moving Image, the exhibition First Reception combines video, new media, performance and materiality. The exhibition will show the German premiere of Analivia Cordeiro’s film Cambiantes (1976). At the vernissage on November 29, 2017, a dance performance with the interactive dress First Reception from Aldona Kut will take place (Dancer: Cyrena Dunbar).
Analivia Cordeiro is a pioneer of Computer-Dance and Brazilian video art. Her first work, M3x3 was created in 1973 and was one of the first Computer-Dance video artworks in Brazil. The work to be shown, Cambiantes, is a research on interaction between the human movement and the medium video; using the computer programming language Fortran IV to model the dancer’s steps. It is a high contrast, black and white video that redesigns the rectangular shape of the video monitor through geometric forms. Inside this space, the dancers move based on right angles and diagonals. The music was composed by Raul do Valle.
Similar to Analivia Cordeiro, Aldona Kut utilizes new technologies within her performance and interactive dress First Reception. The dress moves according to the proximity of the dancer to objects, be them walls or people. The closer the dancer, the more the dress reacts. This performance will take place during the opening of the exhibition. For the first time, part of the work group Aussenfutter will be shown in combination with the performance. Aussenfutter is a six-piece, autonomous work, adding a new perspective to the performance. Aldona Kut explores space, place and time in her work. She takes inspiration from her multifaceted background to create objects, paintings, drawings, paper foldings, collages and performances; connecting fine art with fashion, design, architecture and history.
