Acrylic painted abstract flowing pattern on each side of bendable plywoods, made for a dance performance “Gnugga” choreographed by Takuya Fujisawa. The pattern is painted as one picture on each side. In the performance, these boards are shifted, bent, connected, separated, stacked and built up.
“Gnugga” – A visualization of strain and friction.
Flexible painting and dancers on stage.
The interlocking patterns are a metaphor for the ideal, and as they are moved and distorted, they evoke the gap between ideal and reality. Like our memories, which are a mixture of fact and fiction. By Takuya Fujisawa
