Internal Choreography in Greece


Per Huttner presents a new series of drawings entitled ‘’Internal Choreography’ in this year’s Tilt Platform which takes place in Loutraki outside Athens. The theme of the 2019 edition  is IASIS (healing). Tilt Platform continues to focus on nature, indeterminacy and the dynamics of boundaries. The project wants to unfold a problematic, that deals with the relation to our body and our psyche and the relationship of these two with society, science and art, through art and contemplation.

Huttner’s drawings that investigate how social conventions inform the individual person’s perception of his/her body. His project looks for ways to rethink and more importantly re-feel the body. The work marries line-drawings from different traditions with one-line texts. It draws inspiration from Western medicine, somatic dance practices, traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine and other alternative medicine traditions. Reflecting on the human body and its evolutionary history as well as its interactions with the outside world has always been central concerns Huttner’s artistic practice. In the work the artist draws from his experiences of creating music with his brainwaves in the performance collective 1+1=3 that he has been involved in since 2013. It is also influenced by collaborations with contemporary choregraphers that he has carried out since the early 1990s.
