A Performance Art Piece


Jessica Nupen collaborates with two visual and sculpture artists Matvey Slavin and Nana Bastrup and interprets their fragile and scurrilous arsenal of figurations in a performance art piece. Nupen’s choreography reaches beyond a purely literal approach, lending a narrative dimension—a story which is transposed into the realm of the fantastic, but which has actually taken place through the interpretation of the paintings and sculptures. By cutting into, extracting, and exposing elements, which Bastrup and Slavin combine with delicate lines and colour rhythms, the choreographer and dancer creates new contexts for the figures and herself in the space.
