We carry on. After the ballet in an extremely confined space the relationship boxes are reappearing in a new form. Susanne Pikullik - Bastian already tackled the idea of the zero spiral in the first event series. Now we can tap into a painted game with moving boxes.
Part 6 of the FLOW OF THE ZERO SPIRAL ART SPACE series completed the first cycle. Abdoulaye Guissé's performance was based on a simple equation: 0 = innocence. And as in the logic of Transfigural Mathematics everything unfolds out of zero and returns to zero, it was about original innocence, the loss of innocence through the entrance into life and the purification and return to innocence.
This cycle was presented and transformed into stunning images - from the preparation by Lere Shakunle and Abdoulaye Guissé followed by birth and loss of innocence and finished by a purification ceremony using the purest imaginable medium, white milk.
Call for Partizipation - Series 2
Mathematics is precise. Mathematics is logical. Mathematics is rational. Mathematics is structure.
Figures 1, 2, 3, 4 are a series, are an order, are a sequence. This logic, this structure, this precision has led man very far. On this basis he is able to create incredible things. Our prosperity is based mainly on this basis.
One question, however, has never been answered by the math: what is between the 1 and the 2. The invention of decimals, and other mathematical constructs, which have been more accurate, always left room between them.
What if this space would be the real thing? What if the core of knowledge is formed by what unites rather than what divides the 1 and the 2? What would happen if the 1 would flow into the 2 and from the 2 back into the 1?
