We create our own universe through fearless and emancipated physicality.
This is our way of imagining the unimaginable.
We look for the friction, between what we try to hide or soften, the taboo between you and us.
For this project Keren and Charlie collaborate with designer and visual artist Tony Markus Sacharias and video artist and photographer Paul Sixta.
NOT ON THIS EARTH seeks the space for recognizing the reality of the other, a reality that is different, often contradictory, but not impossible to understand or accept.
Their physical investigation is a complex dialogue in which different and even conflicting perspectives, opinions, and truths can co-exist. The work does not try to find a solution for conflicts, but tries to create space or land where the boundaries of the known can be stretched. Without the need for reconciliation, but with the desire for and urgency of communication and exchange.
