Obsidian is a new performance drawing upon Rochat’s recent travels in China and the extreme landscapes of the Qinghai Province, the performance is a delicate balance between text, body and substance.
Anne Rochat immersively subjects her body to the matter of ice whilst nearby research materials and a collection of videos related to the travel experiences in China will be exhibited.
Obsidian is an ongoing project associated with a residency program of Pro Helvetia.
Fierce Says: We first came across Anne’s work on Vimeo and were gripped by the risk and intensity to her various performances which include hanging as a human chandelier adorned with glassware and scaling a precarious pyramid made of sheets of rusting metal.
