CHINA SERIES Julian Vogel (CH)

Live Performance

„CHINA SERIES“ opens an experiential space where objects roll, spin, fly, break and challenge an interaction between the environment and its visitors. Swiss artist Julian Vogel explores and shows different forms of the diabolo, creating a space between performance, sculpture and contemporary circus. Basically everything revolves around a seemingly simple object: two shells connected by an axis. In „CHINA SERIES“, however, these bowls are replaced by a wide variety of ceramic and porcelain objects. In Cologne, the sculptural objects are shown in connection with machine-driven treadmills and video works inside a circus tent. They thus become an original commentary on the change and dissolution of existing circus forms. The CircusDanceFestival is also showing a documentary about Julian Vogel’s creation methods in the film program on Saturday evening.
