To Wave

House of Literature, Bergen
Østre Skostredet 5, Bergen Map

At 11:00

To Wave is a text-based performance that activates the audience as readers, both as a group and as individuals within this 'ensemble'. Van Imschoot concentrates on one gesture, the act of waving to address the affective choreographies that populate our lives and memories. The performance concludes with the video EFEMERIDEN.

Myriam Van Imschoot

Myriam Van Imschoot is a Brussels-based writer and performance artist who works with sound and interview archives with an interest in the performative nature of documents and the construction of alternative historiographies. Fascinated by phenomena of long distance communication, she embarked on a cycle of works that deal with yodeling, crying and waving. Dealing with the question of proximity and distance, absence and resonance, she pursues her interest in the way humans attempt to bridge the gaps. Her work crosses disciplines such as sound installation, performance and video. It has been supported and presented by Kaaitheater, Kunstencentrum Buda, Vooruit, Jan van Eyck Academie, Recyclart, MUU Galerie, Binaural Nodar Sound Arts Centre, Campo, Kran Film Collective, Suburban Video Lounge, Sculpture International Rotterdam and Vlaamse Gemeenschapscommissie
