Deconstruint Traces was created as a closing act for a painting exhibition by Kristof Willemsen, an abstract painter living and working in Mediona. This performance took place on the 13th of February 2022, at Sala Trinitaris in Vilafranca del Penedès.
Kristof’s exhibition inspired the movement, gestures, and relationships between the three performers and the space. The performance was an open invitation for the public to experience the exhibition from a new angle and created a link between the pictorial language of the canvasses and the ephemeral language of the movement. In this piece, the audience could move freely all over the space while we were dancing, see/feel the dance from a close spot and immerse themselves completely. This mass movement parallel to the performers’ movement helped create a great intimacy between the artist, his work, the audience, the movement, and the performers.
Creation and performance: Einat Tal, Ingrid Domingo, and Montse Morilla.
