A one-night exhibition, on Saturday 14th May 2016, one day before the closing of CCA Warsaw's Studio MDM in Poland. Curated by Agnieszka Sosnowska. In collaboration with Edi Danartono.
Infinite Spin is a multi-media installation which explores ways to activate our reservoirs of electrical energy through constant repetition of controlled bodily movements: non-stop dancing and monotonous rhythms being one of the oldest and most effective tools to reach an ecstatic state of mind. For the entire duration of the show, Danartono produced minimal repetitive electronic sounds on a drum machine, interacting with the visual and mechanical rhythms of the videos. The exhausting performance thus ties up the installation, which can be seen as an anthropological document of the quest for release in general, but also as a generator of a rhythm and an energy that can release us from ourselves – a mechanism that is paradoxically very human.
On the occasion of the exhibition, the publication >>Infinite Spin (pdf-download) << was released in edition of 75.
Live performance by Orang Baru (from opening till closing of the exhibition.)
