Seismic Sessons

Doris Uhlich develops – together with DJ Boris Kopeinig – a Seismic Session: a visual, acoustic, and fleshy setting for the scaffolding constructed for renovation works at the Secession. A choreography of building, melting, and parasitical cohabitation of the famous art nouveau building’s skin.

The vertical becomes a stage for the performance in which the scaffolding has the appearance of a skeleton and the performers appear as living flesh. Considering the history of the Secession, the ornamental and, at the same time, energetic choreography of the naked performers is an extension of the building’s history in space and time.
