Kathrin Hunze, Singularis, 12: 15 min, Germany 2019/20
Singularis is an interwoven network of synthetic body sculptures, enmeshed in a web of interactions and juxtapositions. The originating biological surfaces were scanned, translated into digital point clouds and distorted through an audiovisual granular system, carving out noise patterns and biological rhythms. Originally conceived by Kathrin Hunze (b. 1983, lives and works in Berlin) as a real-time performance in 2019, the work has evolved into video installations and film variations that reimagine the potential of hybrid bodies and their gender fluidity, as well as their spatial and temporal construction.
The on-going screening series Phantom Horizons presents digital as well as analogue works that question the paradigm of linear perspective, seeking a new kind of “status perspective” [Bedeutungsperspektive]. The latter was a development of ancient and medieval painting, in which the size of figures is determined by their hierarchical significance. Extending this approach using the methodology of deconstruction and the possibilities of contemporary film creation, the presented works open up multifaceted, unseen horizons.
