Kikker Stelt Voor: Maarten Heijnens & Anthony van Gog
The work of the artist duo Anthony van Gog and Maarten Heijnens is focused on the idea of the “body-as-instrument”. In the performative sound composition Breathing Piece
, the only instrument is breath. Through the use of inhalation, exhalation, puffs and hisses an intensely layered musical composition is created and the emotional connection between the performer and the spectator is studied.
We are aware that breathing has new connotations in light of COVID-19 as well as the murder of George Floyd. While this piece uses breathing as an instrument and was created in 2018, we want to acknowledge that the content might be influenced by recent events.
