For this performance, Andreea David worked in a solitary space, where she was the sole observer and her own critical eye from the future, through the recording camera. The artist thus turned into the subject of her own aesthetic judgement and the object of her own narcissism. Aware of the look, the nude body immediately adjusts, performs postures stereotypically associated to femininity and its representations, fetish images that constantly require perfecting. In this performance, the nude self-composes in its own landscape, it its own staging, is hiding behind its own representation and conceals itself in the outer look.
Andreea David is a performer and architect. She studied contemporary dance at the National Centre for Dance in Bucharest. In 2012 she was a DanceWEB scholar in Vienna and in 2013 at e.x.e.r.e.c.e. CCN Montpellier. She creates solos and collaborates with other artists, taking part in festivals such as Explore Dance Festival Bucharest, ImpulsTanz Vienna, Temps d’Images Cluj and LIKE CNDB. In 2014, she initiated the Laboratory for Common Practices, a system for working and experimenting that encourages the sharing, developing and exploring of choreographic and performative practices.
The Contemporary Dance Season is a cultural project financed within the cultural programme Bucharest, Participatory City by the Bucharest Mayor Office through the Cultural Projects Centre ARCUB.
