Bravo Charly

Anja Høvik Strømsted and Jasmin Hurst, performance, “MOLT!“, group exhibition, Atelierhof Kreuzberg, Berlin, 2013

In this performance we create a human-robot-architecture hybrid. We disconnect from the audience and connect to each other through a large and heavy ventilation tube. Laces glued to the floor enable us to walk blind. Breathing is done through snorkel breathers, shaped like funnels. The shape of the funnel resembles an eye, thus evokes uncertainties of who is watching and who is being watched. Contemporary living is dominated by watching screens. The funnel is a type of screen that holds a potential to switch into a mirror. Bravo Charly is an examination of the disembodied experience, manipulation and voyeurism in the digital age.
