RAW POETRY | IMMERSIVE CELEBRATION | ZEST FOR LIFE
I am an interdisciplinary artist, moving between two fields: dance/performance + film/photography. My work is a celebration of the life force within us human beings, be it my passion as performer / choreographer or in my visual and film work.
Coming from the dance world, I am a maker with a strong connection to the sensorial, cherishing the poetic power of the human body and movement. This sensorial perception influences my interaction with the world and my work. What I love is to play with multiple layers, to journey between the narrative / rational and the abstract / sensorial. Working with film opens up another dimension and allows me to merge the physical / kinetic with the visual. A very interesting place of exploration is for me where performance + film meet, exploring the medium of video and installation.
In whichever way it might have expressed itself at different times, my innate calling is to seek, create with and give a voice to the power which permeates life, expressing itself within nature and, equally, our core as human beings, through our power, our compassion and ability to overcome and to love.
Image, film, performance, I want to share ‘experiences’, an internal process, a journey the theme of Catharsis and Rite of Passage having been present in my work. My desire is to open up a window onto a universe and an aspect of – the world. My exploration is influenced by a love for the poetic and fascination for the spiritual dimension of life, a maybe purist but definitely not sterile aesthetic, the love for adventure, travel and a calling to zoom in on our connection with the earth.
This is my political act: to create work that is embracing life and life affirming.Andrea Hackl
