Aleksandra Borys, 'Embodied by Land' 2017
The film was made during LABVERDE art+nature+science Residency – Arts Immersion Program in the Amazon/Brazil. It represents the sensation of rainforest and how it affects the human body. Borys’s work explores the physical sensations of the rainforest and the borders of their body connected with the environment. The artist works in choreography, videos, installation, astronomy, cosmology and ecology, exploring relations of the human body, Earth and Universe on a scientific as well as cultural level.
Meditations upon the complexity of the Amazonian landscape, its thoughts and its ‘living logic’, these video collages were made during at Labverde, Brazil. Sallis is a researching, collaborating and exhibiting artist as well as a curator using drawing, video, performance, sculpture and speculative narrative in a multimedia, transdisciplinary approach that interweaves fact and fiction.
