all shadows spinning in the house of glass (2021) by Maru Mushtrieva for NEW FEARS # 2.
In response to the Corona-restrictions this edition of NEW FEARS had to take place entirely online. Liina Magnea and Matthew Day developed new video and photographic works and were accompanied and interviewed by writer Maru Mushtrieva.
In her text “all shadows are spinning in the house of glass” she waves a fantasy network between the submissions of Liina and Matthew, and the conversations with them about their works, Germaine Dulac’s film “The Seashell and the Clergyman” and her own voice.
In Liina Magnea‘s work ‚rrrr’, a terrace in Rome becomes a stage for insignificant clergymen who pray for redemption from hell using the present body to whimper for some sun.
For ‚False Idols (Digital Triptych)‘ Matthew Day worked in collaboration with photographer and visual artist Reyer van Barneveld on developing documentation practices that feedback into the choreographic process of new work under construction. The documents archive the development of the work in rehearsals and they also act as an index towards potential futures, artifacts of events yet to come.
A sound recording of the text was further shared on the WET community.
