Double Points: Paradiso : A Study For Paradise splits and multiplies the moment now into many that exist at the same time. A girl, a boy, an audience, their sound and image. The sum of elements is always the same but something is exchanged, nothing stays the same.
Double Points: Paradiso : A Study For Paradise
Before studying Zen, men are men and mountains are mountains. While studying Zen things become confused. After studying Zen men are men and mountains are mountains. After telling this, dr. Suzuki was asked: “What is the difference between before and after?” He said: “No difference. Only the feet are a little bit off the ground.” (from John Cage's Indeterminacy)
This piece was made as a commission during Andrea Božić's residency at the ICK Amsterdam. Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten invited Andrea to create a performance on Dante’s Paradiso, as they did a series of works on Dante's Divina Commedia. She involved her long-time creative partners, sound artist Robert Pravda and visual artist Julia Willms.
First created for and performed at The Event Party in the Kitchen – a Peek into ICK, December 2009. Commissioned and produced by ICKAmsterdam
