Collapse of the Senses
Andressa Cantergiani • Brazil/Germany andressacantergiani.art.br
COLLAPSE OF THE SENSES is a performance of Dioptre (by Andressa Cantergiani and Roberta Vaz) – an homage to Bernardo de Souza's text Dioptre – describing how the opposition between two opposing forces generates tension and the consequent fraying of dialectical possibilities, leading not to a synthesis, but to the suspension of a common lexicon and its syntactic possibilities.
Andressa Cantergiani is a contemporary performance artist whose work speaks of otherness, the body as a political artifact and womanhood.
