“Impetus” is part of the selection films of the project MOVE WITH (OUT), curated by Something Human.

MOVE W I T H (OUT) is a travelling project, curated by Something Human that questions the notions of “home”. Addressing an increasingly unstable global economic landscape, the exhibition and site specific live art intervention explores the ambivalent relationships between the interior and the exterior that plays out over issues such as identity, borders and migration, belonging and longing, and the tensions of navigating between the different spheres. Previous iterations have taken place in Berlin, Rome, Venice, Belgrade, Singapore, Budapest and Skopje.

Installation “Tenants” at the Barbican Center – Documentation

  • October 6, 2015

A piece by Ines von Bonhorst & Yuri Pirondi

“Tenants” is a video installation that explores the cyclical nature of the life in the city. The landscape of London appears flat, there stand towers reminiscent of a remote past, almost mythological. These towers are differentiated by their impressiveness throughout the cityscape and their opposite charges which these buildings hold: commercial and residential. These two types of towers have in common the rhythmical nature of windows and balconies that obsessively are repeated, interrupted only by the daily rituals of its inhabitants. The Tower Block has been designed to guest more people as possible, frequently the families most in need. At the same time The Office Block is designed to accommodate commercial spaces, where rents are generally high. Although these two entities are socially and economically opposed to each other, they are the symbols of the city. Our idea is to merge them into a single tower that tries to represent in playfully and interactively a different way to look at the city.

Live Performance “Tenants” – Part of Something Human show – From East to the Barbican – http://fromeastothebarbican.london/performances/tenants/

“Tenants” is a performative collaboration between filmmakers Ines Von Bonhorst & Yuri Pirondi, with the movement artist Alexandra Baybutt & the amazing group Bitch ‘n’ Monk. The performance takes as inspiration the biblical myth of the Tower of Babel, as the artists reflect on the cosmopolitan city of London as a site of struggle for different cultures and lives. Exploring conceptually and architecturally the ’verticality’ associated with the ‘Tower’ the artists document tower blocks in different locations, capturing voyeuristic observations of the tenants, workers and passersby in their everyday environments.

Bringing the video material together with live movement, the performance within the Barbican continues this exploration of elevated shape with the human form and movement. Unlike the rigidity of concrete, glass and steel, the dancer wearing sculptural attire brings movement, flexibility and malleability that can express unpredictability and the impetus for change and escape – a living, breathing intervention accompanied by the sounds of the flute, guitar and singing.
