HYPERSPACE

Hyperspace & Jumpcore - Spring Forward 2019

From the human body to the cosmos, HYPERSPACE is an inquiry into the metrics we use to measure the deep unknowns of the universe. James Batchelor proposes a subtle study of the human body seen through the prism of cosmology, a mapping of the universe within and around it.

HYPERSPACE is the third in a series of works from James Batchelor and his collaborators that grew from a unique opportunity to be part of a scientific expedition to study sub-Antarctic islands in 2016.

Jumpcore

Hyperspace & Jumpcore - Spring Forward 2019

Jumpcore takes its inspiration from Fred Herko, a cult American dancer known for his suicidal performance in which he jumped out from an apartment to Mozart’s “Coronation Mass”. Every ballet dancer has the impression that he can fly, and hovering in the air he does fly indeed, though only for a moment.


Paweł Sakowicz’s performance is a variation on the theme of jumping, ranging from ballet to rave, and how to turn the body into an energetic machine.
