Code Act

Performance

 A bar stool is being transformed into a micro stage for the body sculpture "Code Act".

Within 15 minutes the piece unfolds body images that reveal the strength and intimacy of being human.

 

On the one hand, the bar chair serves as a column for a classic Greek or Roman statue, but as an everyday object it reminds of Berlin's dark nightlife, of leisure, standstill, addiction, pleasure and loneliness. In addition to her haunting dialogue between shadow and light, Veruschka Bohn creates an game in the minds of the viewer by switching between opposing meanings that occur within the sculptural process.

Code Act Taiwan Version

Performance Video made in collaboration with Humatic Media

 The film composer and AV producer Christian Graupner (VOOV / HUMATIC) observed the V3 performance in the streets of Kaohsiung mostly from a paparazzi perspective and creates surreal connections with partly bizarre scenes from the exceptional city. The intuitive and playful pairing of staged and observing passages with a floating soundtrack can take the viewer into a surreal dream. The outcome is Code Act Taiwan Version - a virtual experience that was filmed during the first months of the corona pandemic in Taiwan.
