I Feel a Second Heart

Cristian Andersson


I Feel a Second Heart is a work about the life of an individual—a planned trajectory and the complications that are bound to arise. The ribbon plays both the role of a visual timeline as well as a challenger to a naïvely hopeful, unobstructed life.

This is the third performance piece I have created with my collaborative partner Katharina Abderholden, and the second that is solely in recorded form. I wanted simple gestures and materials to be used. It was created in a single (only) take to catch a feeling of the two of us creating, unrehearsed.
