Performance 'IT CONCERNS YOU'
Exhibition RUTSCHBAHN, Leipzig Germany
Opening: 16th November 2018
The Performance IT CONCERNS YOU is a collaboration between Tamaki Kawaguchi and Reinhold Ponesch and addresses the issue of physical debilitation. The piece includes painting, video, dance, installation and Noh Theatre – and depicts the ageing process and its resulting dependency.
Ponesch portrays an elderly person who has become physically and mentally debilitated. Kawaguchi teeters between being the carer and being the puppeteer that is time itself. Wearing a protective raincoat, Ponesch finds himself trapped in the box that is his body. As he tries to escape, Kawaguchi paints his raincoat and the latex walls of the box as he presses against them.
Throughout the performance, elements of physical and psychological deterioration are revealed. Onlookers are invited to engage by responding to unexpected pleas for help. Post-performance, the raincoat hangs on the wall, as the scaling skin resulting from metamorphosis.
