Fist Piece

Dealing with the inherent brutality and fluidity of feminised experience, Fist Piece is a performance work built for stage. Taking on the role of narrator, the artist engages in an improvised performance in dialogue with live music and a three channel film installation featuring herself and her mother. Over the course of the performance, the artist explores multiple personas, at once playful yet fragile, intimate yet violent. A twist in the narrative occurs when she is joined on stage by a second person, acting as the protagonist’s double. Fist Piece is a visually vivid and sonically emphatic exposition of the artist’s personal understanding of trauma. While leaving open the possibility of transformation, it seeks to communicate and explain the idea of pain in a universal way. Since it’s premiere at Kraftwerk Berlin in 2017, Fist Piece has been performed internationally at venues and festivals including Barbican Center and Elbphilharmonie Hamburg.

处理女性化体验内在的残酷性和流动性,Fist Piece是一个为舞台打造的表演作品。艺术家担任叙述者的角色,参与到一场即兴表演中,并与现场音乐和由本人和母亲参演的三频影像装置对话。在表演过程中,艺术家扮演多个角色,调皮又脆弱,亲密又暴力。当第二个扮演主角的影子上台后,叙事发生了转折。Fist Piece是艺术家对创伤的个人化理解的生动视听表达。它试图用一种共通的语言去阐释疼痛。在2017年在柏林的Kraftwerk首演后,Fist Piece曾在全球各个场馆和音乐节被表演,包括Barbican Center(伦敦)和Elbphilharmonie(汉堡)。
