Intercalation, 2014
performance with Michael Burditt Norton
Directly addressing curating and the vibrancy of matter in a Performance, Echeverri Fernandez invited Andrea Hoffmann to apply the technique of Systemic Constellations to (re)introduced sculptural works from a show called “homecomings” in Berlin 2013 into the same exhibition space they occupied nearly a year before. In Systemic Constellations time and space are suspended; everything, including past, present, and future are intertwined and in relationship to each other. Tatiana Echeverri Fernandez in turn set quotation into jarred movement with fragments from Jean-Luc Nancy´s Corpus and the preceding performance. Taking on the trifold definition of her title, Intercalation -  the insertion of a molecule into DNA, an ion into a layered solid such as graphite, or a technique used to insert one narrative inside another, implying simultaneity - was performed by Michael Burditt Norton, traversing the present space and within Øystein Aasan’s sculptural installation Gates / In (not) so many words (2014).
