Berlin-born artist Yvon Chabrowski thematises the ways in which ecological and societal transformations inscribe themselves in the bodies of the individuals that form our society. Within the scope of her VISIT residency, she pays homage to the Ruhr region, where it is not just the landscape and culture that has been impacted by the decommissioning of numerous coal mines – perhaps this can even be seen in the appearance of the residents themselves. What changes are occurring to our bodies, motion, breathing, distribution of roles and attributes? ‘BODIES IN TRANSITION’ will be based on an intense phase of research, in which Yvon Chabrowski will investigate work processes, societal structures and economic change in the Ruhr region. She plans to transform the results of this research into a performative video sculpture. #VISIT2019
