The performance installation „Folding Affairs“ is an engagement with the process of folding and unfolding, blurring the line between outside and inside. It affects all material: body, plastic, brain, glass, water... It is an intense material research into the visual aspect of „The Fold“, a physical commitment as well as a challenge to a philosophical understanding of the Deleuzian definition of „The Fold“. Here „the world is interpreted as a body of infinite folds and surfaces that twist and
weave through compressed time and space“. The subject is seen in a state of constant becoming aiming towards diversity and it is rather an opening than a closure, open-ended and inexhaustive.
„Folding Affairs“ is presented in the format of an open studio that can be entered any time. It embraces the in-between and continously oscillates between establishing the visual and revealing the intimicy of a work process.
