Becoming undone – Part II

Performance/Premiere by WILHELM GROENER
In the frame of Open Spaces#1-2016

Right foot is the right hand. Left hand and the right foot, which is now the right hand, are holding hands while I’m walking through the space. Knee is head. Eyes are locked under the knee and peek onto the back wall. Shoulder blades are feet now and try to walk.

"becoming undone" is a three-part project dealing with evolutionary modes of openness. WILHELM GROENER – Günther Wilhelm & Mariola Groener – showed the first part in summer 2015 as a hybrid between performance and exhibition at Kunstquartier Bethanien Berlin. Now the second part »becoming undone – PART II« is premiered in the frame of "Open Spaces #1 – 2016". Together with the performers Anja Müller, Assaf Hochman and sound performer Rudi Fischerlehner, WILHELM GROENER transforms Studio 14 at the UFERSTUDIOS into a sort of large-scale laboratory. In various stationary experimental arrangements the reactive and transformative qualities of bodies and other substances are examined. The material is bent, shifted, connected and transmuted for all it´s worth.

 The artist Mariola Groener and the dancer Günther Wilhelm have been joining their names and arts under the WILHELM GROENER label since 2001. With a predilection for the odd and absurd, their choreograhies contain elements of performance, dance and installation. The pieces Vorgang benutzt, Paravent privé und Hotel Hassler were invited to the GERMAN DANCE PLATFORM in 2002, 2006 and 2010. WILHELM GROENER is headquartered in Berlin.
