Body sculpture performances.
Hans Breder is a German artist (b1935).For the Past decades he has explored.
For the past five decades, intermedia pioneer Hans Breder (b. 1935) has been investigating the junction between painting, sculpture, photography, music and video.Each expression an invitation to subversive liminality and momentary transcendence. Breder’s work dissolves boundaries and manipulates perception, sometimes enticing, sometimes shocking the observer to an experience of liminality from which a realm of pure possibility may emerge.
Interesting Key points :
- i like how the body can transform in something surreal by the intersection of an other piece ( mirror). its quite interesting the dialogue between body/object and other object.
- instead of the power of gaze i feel there is a certain power deriving from the junction of these too ‘beeings’
- *object – *thingness – *being – *relation
- Mind–body problem mental states, events and processes—like beliefs, actions and thinking—are related to the physical states, events and processes, given that the human body is a physical entity and the mind is non-physical. –
Plato (429–347 B.C.E.) argued that, as the body is from the material world, the soul is from the world of ideas and is thus immortal. He believed the soul was temporarily united with the body and would only be separated at death, when it would return to the world of Forms. Since the soul does not exist in time and space, as the body does, it can access universal truths.
‘Forms’…exist outside of space and time and that are both the objects of knowledge and somehow the cause of whatever transpires in the physical world […] the immortal soul, in a disembodied state prior to its incarceration in a body, viewed these Forms, a knowledge of which is then recalled by incarcerated souls through a laborious process. — Alan Silverman, Plato’s Middle Period Metaphysics and Epistemology
