Disorient is a new artistic collaboration between Ludivine Allegue and Valentina Lacmanovic ultimately resulting in two artworks – a short FILM and aPERFORMANCE.
It will be realized at the Neomudejar Art center (Centro de Artes de Vanguardia, Madrid-SPAIN) during anInternational Art Residency in March and April 2016 .
We have plotted this project for a few years, looking for an idea that reveals the essence, the core of the human in ourselves and in our audience.
There is a desire in all humans to get “lost”, disorientated, to find her/himself “somewhere else” and not understand the surrounding signs. The challenge is to feel and listen, to try not to implant the pre-conceptions or think in boxes in order to reach the human, the universal and essential in ourselves – our soul.
What happens when we lose our perimeters, our orientating devices, our socio-cultural or emotional pillars?
How do we cope with facing an archetypal movement, a repetition that can entrance us so that we lose ground?
Can we let go and accept that the work of art can take us to the core of humanity of what connects us without explanation,without imposed narratives?
Disorient artwork is imagined as an immersive interdisciplinary experience in which we shall dive to find ourselves better together with you, our partners in disorientation and merging with the unknown.
As the whole Universe spins, whirls and spirals, as well as the smallest particle of our sub-atomic matter, this unconscious movement is what keeps us alive and our macro-and-micro cosmic bodies together. It is our main instrument and inspiration for this project.
We shall work for almost two months in the spaces of La Neomudejar in close collaboration, echoing painting and dancing performance on one side and organically connecting the movement of the camera with the movement of the body on the other side.
The project emerges particularly from two past works: Sama, a video art by Ludivine Allegue and SheDervish framed, a video-performance by Valentina Lacmanovic.
