YU is an expanded performance on the research for organic wisdom by fasci(a)nated attention in a visceral garden(*). This research would not be about what visceral organs are; but about the complex correlations of organs towards the life. Organic wisdom is about the sensation of life with reference to the existence of visceral organs. As fasci(a)neted attention expands the awareness towards the ambiguity between the in and out; the visible and invisible; the material (fleshy) and immaterial (energetic); the performer traces ways for sensing, affecting and moving the body with this archaic, organic and spontaneous wisdom which the visceral organs constantly offer to the life.
This work is an attempt for a provocative and productive way of thinking about body, and life; the electromagnetic spheres all hearts/intestines/ stomachs resonate with, affect, meaning, reality and life. Silence and darkness welcome the unseen and unhearable presence of deep-in-side of the body. With/in the silence of the muscular ground, it may be time for the organs to dance, shake and vibrate the world!
(*) Organic wisdom is a concept proposed by the artist on the archaic, organic and spontaneous wisdom which the visceral organs constantly offer to the life. Fasci(a)nated attention is discovered by the composition of the words of ‘fascia’ (anatomical word in Latin) and ‘fascinated’. This concept is about the awareness of body towards the temporalities, spatialities and corporealities. Expanded performance is proposed by the artist in order to emphasize the collaboration of performance and cinema in a dialogue with expanded cinema.
