INDIA KENNING (SA) - PENT UP RAGE
Feltdark March 6th - 23rd 2019
India Kenning has a multidisciplinary practice, creating hybrid forms of movement and sound, she works to accumulate energies and create a sense of presence. Drawing on personal and philosophical theories of the body, she examines it as a separate entity to the self. Navigating the body’s own modes and rhythms, while intervening within it’s unknown internal spaces. Pent Up Rage examines the subjection to surveillance through momentary riot. Picking apart the unsettling means to be surveyed and its disruptions to a linear cycle. The body- as an armour to protect the fragility of the soul- is attacked and violated, cutting up the flesh that protects it and allowing the core to lay limp.
Nothing is pure, nothing is sacred, don’t think about it.
Through the form of fragmented image and aggressive noise, I release an anger foreign to myself, spitting it out in dribs and drabs. Forcing the audience to survey the surveyed, I concentrate their energy inward, creating an intimate rhythm that flashes before them.
