Bülow, Malin

Installation, performance, skulptur

Inspired by inside wetness, osmosis, permeability and equilibriums, I seek to visualize the systems and connections between our bodies.
I think of emotions as insides – insides that need to blend and skins that need to melt to allow flow across barriers. Sara Ahmed speaks in terms of circulation rather than transfer. She describes emotions as the sticky essence between bodies. Emotions, not affiliated to certain inside structures but as movement in between. At the intersection of Ahmed´s stickiness and my invasiveness rests the core visual potential I am working with.
In my most recent work I have been investigating elasticity in relation to corporality and skin. I create large scale elastic sculptures activated by dancers. In so doing I aim to stretch the most natural border of our bodies – the skin. Skin as the barrier to inside and skin as interpersonal border. I seek to initiate an ambivalent sense of rigidity and flexibility.
My work resides at the intersection between performance and sculpture. The bodily presence is essential. I am working together with dancers that materialize, initiate and activate my sculptural ideas and systems. The choreography is slow, extended and repetitive, making the work appear more like living, elastic sculptures or performative still lives.
