Matthias Beckmann and Sandra Havlicek see and experience the city from different perspectives. While he documents everyday situations in the immediate neighborhood with his watercolor drawings created on-site, she is interested in the higher-level structures and contexts of the metropolis, which she translates into a complex sculptural work.

Being body by Lena Heubusch

Being body

on 3rd Dec, 7.30 pm
at 1Shanthiroad Studio/Gallery
by Lena Heubusch

The evening explores the nomadic sciences of the rhizomatic body through creative robotics and experimental sound.
The installation is based on a somatic method of reflection that accesses the subtle poetry of the heart, bones, and skin.
The artist Lena Heubusch strives for a holistic approach to the practice of media and performance-based art dedicated to somatic and collective movement practices. 
She questions the importance of metals like copper in the context of technological progress, as well as its physicality and the fact that it is a finite resource. 
Her work is driven by questions like:
- How do we, as bodies, experience a ‘being body’ in the digital realm?
- How can we use new technologies to transform ''difference'' into a tool for commoning? 
The evening is an effort in collaboration with:
Sound Designer Nikhil Nagaraj
Creative Coders Jasraj Paik and Hrishikesh Wagle
