becoming undone – Part I

Video by WILHELM GROENER
In the frame of Open Spaces#1-2016

The three-part project "becoming undone" by WILHELM GROENER – Günther Wilhelm & Mariola Groener – deals with evolutionary modes of openness. The eponymous term is borrowed from Elizabeth Grosz` writing of the same title. She depicts in it an extensive understanding of matter, nature, biology, time and becoming.
The first part of the cycle, "becoming undone - PART I", was shown at Kunstquartier Bethanien, Studio 1 (Chapel), 30 August - 6 September, 2015 as a hybrid between performance and exhibition. 2 bodies and 2.000 ping-pong balls in constant exploration of the relationships amongst and between them. A view from the gallery provided varying perspectives on a constantly changing situation that probes experimental arrangements of space, sound, body and things. The spectator had a choice: observing the developing performance in full length over the course of three hours, attending an excerpt or stopping by several times, on different days.

WILHELM GROENER

The artist Mariola Groener and the dancer Günther Wilhelm have been joining their names and arts under the WILHELM GROENER label since 2001. With a predilection for the odd and absurd, their choreograhies contain elements of performance, dance and installation. The pieces Vorgang benutzt, Paravent privé und Hotel Hassler were invited to the GERMAN DANCE PLATFORM in 2002, 2006 and 2010. WILHELM GROENER is headquartered in Berlin.
