For this performance, Andreea David worked in a solitary space, where the sole observer was her own critical eye from the future, through the recording camera. The artist thus turned into the subject of her own aesthetic judgment and the object of her own narcissism. Aware of the look, the nude body immediately adjusts, performs postures stereotypically associated with femininity and its representations, fetish images that constantly require perfecting. In this performance, the nude self-composes in its own landscape, in its own staging, it hides behind its own representation and conceals itself in the outer look.
Andreea David is a performer and architect. She has a background in contemporary dance from the National Centre for Dance in Bucharest. In 2012, she is a DanceWEBB scholar in Vienna and in 2013, at e.x.e.r.e.c.e. CCN Montpellier. She takes part in festivals such as Explore Dance Festival, Impuls Tanz Vienna and Temps d’images Cluj. She collaborated and still collaborates with Adriana Gheorghe, Alina Popa, Florin Flueraș, Ingrid Berger Myhre (NO), Doris Uhlich (AT), Thomas Steyaert (BE), Mădălina Dan and Mihaela Dancs for the shows or projects Duet, STAFF, scores #21 methods of elimination, BlackHyperBox, Group Choreography, More than Naked and Drive-by Duet. In 2015, she initiated the Laboratory for Common Practices, a system of work and experiment in which choreographic practices are shared and developed within a group.
"Watching this show, we are reminded of the way in which the female body has been used throughout art history (usually as an object of male adoration), but also as an expression of social interactions that have perpetuated the same model." - Garbo.ro
