An installation based performance by Anna Bergström and Richard Widerberg.
The piece investigates what’s human in the body of illness and the history of medical care. An embodiment of the unspoken exists in-between the lines of historical medical descriptions and texts as well as within the personal stories. In such a way we meet memories and vibrations present in the spaces within the museum and its objects - as a museum, archive and hospital. By doing so the space can be experienced with new eyes, ears and with new presence.
The piece was performed at The Medical History Museum, Gothenburg, and premiered in September 2014. This project is part of a framework of research where we are investigating the human need of spaces for reflection and everyday presence.
Anna Bergström is a dance artist and Richard Widerberg is a sound artist. This is their first collaboration.
