In her performance for extended vocal, Russian-born and Berlin-based artist Olga Kozmanidze, sings songs that are being perpetually reversed. Motivated by the idea of creating a piece out of what can neither be conceived nor performed, she questions the structures and eternally running processes of self-control and self-monitoring that influence live performance.
The performance aims to confront text, author and conventional body with incorporated Logos and everything that “makes sense”. Instead it reveals “otherness”, enjoyment and femininity in the form of a chaotic voice production with unknown pre- and post-linguistic utterance and in 'excessive body,' employing unfamiliar postures and movements.
Olga Kozmanidze has a background in performance, music and sound art. She creates works in a variety of media and forms including participatory performances, interactive art, site-specific interventions, music performances, composition, sound installations, dance and improvisation. As Unfinishe_ she plays, produces and releases experimental music made with prepared instruments, field recordings, the piano, electronics, vocals and tape. In 2016 Olga co-founded “Sentire”, a project comprising a participatory performance series with interactive sound system and cross-disciplinary research on human perception that brings together artists, researchers and therapists. Olga has taken part in international events including CTM Vorspiel, Miami Art Basel, Project Space Festival, Berlin International Performance Art Weekend, Moscow Music Week amongst others.
