ICI=HIER

Vidéo performance exhibition with Evamaria Schaller

Je suis ICI (Alice, Belgium 2020-2021)

Stuck at home, I film myself doing a simple action with my face and send it to you.

Ich bin HIER (Evamaria, Germany 2020-2021)

Stuck at home, I film myself doing a simple action with my face, answering you.

We are HERE (Germany, summer 2021)

Finally together, we enjoy playing with landscapes, architecture, found materials and the dialogue between our bodies.

We are HERE (Belgium, winter 2022)

Exploring a new place, an empty house, we bring to life forgotten objects.

ICI=HIER is a collection of video performances, solos made during lockdown and duos made during two residencies.

We like to make clear and simple choices of actions, to appear and disappear, to blend our bodies and to create optical illusions.  In some actions, we blend into the space, using our skin to create a dialogue with the wood (of the trees or the beams). In others, we choose a colourful object linking our bodies and interacting with the space by creating contrasts.  Our actions are playful, sometimes sensual, sometimes absurd, like magicians whose tricks are almost trivial, yet poetic.  

Alice De Visscher and Evamaria Schaller met in 2010. They have been collaborating on duo-performances  regularly even since in Germany, Belgium, Ireland and France. ICI=HIER is their first video performance project together.

October 2022 at Le Maga/La part du feu, Brussels.
