Symptom is a work featuring Minnesota twins, dancer Otto Ramstad and visual artist Emmett Ramstad, co-created by Olive Bieringa and Otto Ramstad with sound composed by electro-acoustic instrumentalist Andrea Parkins.
Together they examine the human body, as both an object of study and as a producer of knowledge, to investigate notions of social bodies versus biological bodies, and explore the gaps between seeing, knowing and empathy. Conversing with the early works of Dan Graham and Bruce Nauman amongst others, Symptom is a bold visual work of sculpture, drawing, movement and text. The performance inspects the slippage between subjective and objective understandings of the human body, where a symptom acts as an indicator, trait, feature, mark or sign that is open for interpretation.
