The Body Never Exists in Itself – 120 bps

 

Tales Frey, The Body Never Exists in Itself – 120 bps, 2020. Video installation, 5’53”

 

Although the video The Body Never Exists in Itself – 120 BPM (2020) presents separate bodies by precise demarcations, it exposes the way individuals are interdependent in a collective composition in body masses referred to sculpture and dance. Identical costumes are protective wrappings that hide identities and defend the bodies of the environment that surrounds them.

Simple and random poses performed by bodies devoid of identity in short and controlled times allude to the waiting time, while the rhythm presented by the sound of a metronome confirm the anxiety of having to wait for some change both from the point of view of those who perform the poses and from the point of view of those who contemplate them.
