Hear me to feel me – Embodied Audio Installation
*Trigger Warning Sexualized Violence*
Can you feel what I feel? How can I reach the place where you have always been alone? How can I show you what nobody ever wants to see? Can you be a body for me? Who am I when I see you? Where does your fear go when you are not alone anymore?
Jeanne Rohleder and Sonja Keßner are two Berlin based artists and anthropologists. With their artistic research and performance project “Owdnegrin” they investigate the phenomenon of sexualized violence and sexualized violence during childhood and its political implications, zoom in on trauma and resilience and the transformative possibilities of its artistic progression.
The emodied audio installation Hear me to feel me invites the audience to witness and join their research at the same time. The work aims to explore the thin line between trauma and resilience. It is a pleading for empathy and involvement. Intimate, courageous and fragile.
