Relic 1 “Pointing” is taken from the dance work TEMPORARY STORE by Colette Sadler. Re-contextualised as a “pop-up” performance for GOMA. Here the body is found within the exhibition space excavating human gesture in an endless loop.
Temporary store searches for the choreographic interface between virtual and physical reality. In a futuristic place of transit that could be anything from a pop-up store to a museum, timeless adverts are flickering across the walls for a fictional company “Vessels.inc” . Post-human bodies are move to immersive acoustic music and are frequently wound back and regenerated like robots. As archives, they are traveling through a digital time and space, passing through an infinite loop of virtuosic movement patterns that seem familiar and alien at the same time.
