Some hands; gestures tracing patterns; internalized rules; behavioural habits. Learned rituals determine our movements in art spaces. Spaces or ritual structures incite visitors, consciously or unconsciously, to interpret a specific representation, a performance.
An invitation to think about the dichotomy between what is biological and what is learned; between the natural and the representation is the work A Specific Representation. There some dancers recall the body memory, while recovering and reenacting the same learned gestures and transits, undergoing a physical exercise for highlighting how learned rituals determine our movements in art spaces.
