Le Sang, Performance
In videos, performances, sets, installations and texts, Sabrina Röthlisberger addresses pain, sickness, medically induced liminal states, death, survival, recovery and the questionable “return to normal”. In the context of CONTAMINATION/RESILIENCE, her work opens up space and time to step into an underworld – looking at the world from the perspective of the sickbed, from assumed failure and weakness, it evokes the power of the powerless, other possible worlds and a dark erotic potential.
Sabrina Röthlisbergers installation in the Protozone will be activated by the artist in the first night with the live-performance “Le Sang”, that is based on her poetry book with the same title. Sabrina Röthlisberger developed “Le Sang” at the Centre d’art contemporain in Geneva, in collaboration with fellow artists Garance Bonard (music) and Tamara Alegre (choreography).
