AGENCY/ AUTONOMY OF BODIES AND THE POLITICS OF PERFORMANCE IN THE PANDEMIC

This talk was hosted by interdisciplinary artist and curator (EDWA) Alexa Wilson, joining her were three of 2021’s PAWA artists; Alana Yee, Quinoa/Chris Kirk and Rachel Ruckstuhl-Mann. The talk focuses on the agency and autonomy of the body within the context of public vs private in a digital era. The conversation centres around the role and politics of performance as an embodied and conceptual art form during this digital age. The Covid-19 pandemic has emphasised the relevance of digital media. The landscape of digital media is rapidly evolving and continues to provoke questions around public vs private and how it can become enmeshed with agency and autonomy of bodies and identities.

Alexa Wilson is an interdisciplinary artist and curator from New Zealand based in Berlin 10 years now back in Tāmaki Makaurau. Her works range from solo performance art projects, which are often political and relational (immersive/interactive) to commissioned group choreographies and video projects either directed or collaborative, also political, interdisciplinary and layered. Her work while inherently feminist in its underpinnings, relates to intersectional politics inclusive of different themes. She is interested in activation as a form of socio-political healing, embodying difficult and contemporary themes from subjective and multi-dimensional perspectives.
