Maciej Sado & Andrea Zavala Folache
Northing training, 2 hour long public space experiment
With 'Northing', Maciej Sado & Andrea Zavala Folache created a device, an instrument, tuned enough to transfer the obliqueness. This becomes their main approach to any encounter. They introduce virtuality to the actual space where the body becomes a mobile application of connectedness. Sado & Zavala use augmented reality to save any context of every reality passing by, from disappearing, touching upon our consciousness, anticipation, fantasies, imaginations, archives of memory, wording, moving, and knowing. Taking the premise that when we move, we move between cognition and perception, real and nothingness, where nothingness gives here an uncountable (im)potentiality back to everything.
Sado & Zavala switch between performing and dropping performance, opening up contexts of reality and fiction to liquify identities, subvert egos, and kill makers. They stand shaking, on a specific timing which travels from 'before' and 'after', 'here' or 'there' every time we engage in the now. Patience and misplaced stillness are keys we use in order to invite “I” to disappear and become one of the other possible “'many’s”.
