Even in the 1970s, the Viennese artist Franz West started to create adaptable objects, so-called “Paßstücke”. These portable objects made of gauze and plaster are only complete objects of art when someone uses them for something. The Bulgarian performer Ivo Dimchev has taken the opportunity to turn them into a solo.
Viewing the sculptures he tries to understand them, touches them, dances with them, sings to them and thus makes them communicate with his body, which in turn is the basis of his own art. “I-ON” is the solo version of the group piece “X-ON”, which will be first performed at ImPulsTanz 2011.
