Holly Zausner

The beginning…

The beginning… documents Zausner’s performances against the backdrop of historically significant sites in Berlin. Colorful silicone figures designed by the artist—female and male nudes, whose arms and legs flow together in over-sized loops—serve here as objects that she moves, carries, or throws. The video records the physical-performative engagement and physical challenge and in so doing makes the sculptural dimension of the figures visible.
