Who’s Afraid? II
In Who’s Afraid? II, Lola Bezemer plays with access to and perception of space. A large textile screen is set in motion by a performer. The performer is continually rotating the screen while changing speed and direction. The movement of the textile limits access to the space, creates divisions between the audience and renders the space momentarily visible and invisible.
