On the Sublime (2019)
Performance with soundscape, dance, projection (duration: 10 minutes)
A live sung and Hildegard von Bingen inspired melody, and a live composed soundscape on the electric cello. A performer in a white dress, catching projections with images showing the beginning of art history until the latest technological developments of our present time. Reflecting on different views on the concept of the 'sublime' throughout the ages. And questioning the sublimity of our current paradigm.
Jessica van Deursen, together with artist Sis Josip and Monique van Deursen, performed On the Sublime during Time to Perform in Root gallery (Rotterdam) and during the opening of the cultural season for Het Gemeentemuseum Den Haag.
