performance Moved by Voice by Irena Tomažin Zagoričnik continues her
exploration of the relation between the body, voice, and space. Tomažin and her
collaborators undertake a research into the multiple sources of voice, its
flesh, its materiality and metaphysical properties, and scrutinize its meaning
and place in everyday life. This is an investigation of the processes that take
place when the will of the cultivated flesh slackens and permits the presence
of the voice, disburdened of the dichotomy between subject and object, culture
and nature, the individual and the social, between the vulnerable body and the
power of performance, to grow out of the cautious and delicate space/flesh.
How to let
the voice come out as resuscitation and giving ear to the manifold sound space
in and outside of the individual and collective bodies? The body that listens
and resonates with the heard. Every so often, the voice becomes tangible and
enters the body directly – the closeness of this place is strangely uncanny
because we are oblivious and alienated from our innermost flesh.
