Traces of the heard and seen (2018)

Photo: Anneleen Steenbergen

Traces of the Heard and Seen exists out of three one-to-one performances exploring intimacy of a daily action; combing hair. The performances explore intimacy in three different actions presented simultaneously in different spaces; a performer combs their own hair in front of one spectator, a performer reads the repetitive actions of combing hair out loud in front of one spectator and a performer invites one spectator to comb the performers hair. The access to imagination took place through spoken words and the closeness to the spectator. Through performances the invincible gap between a daily action and intimacy will become visible in real space. The performer is the mediator between the spectator and the act of combing.
