Spectacular: Video installation - Margrét Bjarnadóttir
The video installation by Margrét Bjarnadóttir is a part of the performance festival Every Body's Spectacular.
Margrét begins the task of collecting and documenting her own movements. Not practical everyday movements or the moves and steps you might learn in a dance school – but rather the movements that we can’t quite place, or that we don’t know the source of, or the movements that well up from the deep.
Every body is a an endless well of movements. Margrét’s library of movements will preserve and catalogue her own distinct movement signatures. Such movements are closely connected to feelings and the subconscious and therefore not unlike dreams that might only appear once and then never again.
Her library is a collection of raw gestures, movement strands and cryptic signals. It is a search for something that may or may not exist — the body’s secret scriptures.
The project is supported by Lókal & RDF within the frame of Gjörningatíð (Hour of happenings) supported by the Ministry of Culture and Education.
