Ula Sickle
Free Gestures

The catalogue of the Free Gestures exhibition was produced during the residency of Canadian dancer, performer and choreographer of Polish origin, Ula Sickle. Free Gestures is a choreographic exhibition performed by a group of dancers for five hours each day. The starting point is the question of how ideologies become incorporated into our bodies and language. Here, it is not the performers‘ bodies or objects that are the works of art, but rather the performed texts, gestures and movement. The catalogue shows work to which the viewer usually has no access weeks of rehearsals with performers and changes in the gallery space. The visual material consists of photos taken by the artist while working on the project.
