Sailor_log: 3rd ocean
Sailor* is sailing through the precarious waters of studio work. One Sailor finds instruments important in order to build imaginary landscapes that perform basic emotions and movements, adding body to a skeleton. The other Sailor is more concerned with discovering the body of space itself, cutting off various heads and hands in order to dissolve the state. But in both cases, the image loses its body and approaches death. They find themselves in a radio station in outer space that never plays Sailor’s favorite song. Here they must find a new way, a third way, to communicate with each other in the place beyond language, beyond power.
Ahoi! The third ocean offers itself. Folklore, Glitch, Pop, and the Reverse Engineered Void.
*: Caroline Beach and Ernst Markus Stein have been sailing and researching together in a residency coordinated and made possible by En-Knap and Hellerau Europäische Zentrum der Künste Dresden. Besides that, they have been influenced by the people they have met in Ljubljana, the history of the country, the architecture that they say hello to on their walk to the studio, and the way that ‘thank you’ rhymes with Koala in Slovenian. It is their first time creating a new work together: Caroline comes from choreography and performance and Markus from DJ’ing, Net Art, and painting. Their research has focused on finding the overlaps and distances in their respective fields, building bridges through old mediums and writing new languages that are better than compromises.
