The installation Détournement viral is a 3-hour multimedia event of dance, light and sound. On an artistic-philosophical level, it deals with viral structures and their inherent processes of destabilisation as well as the potentiality of destruction, modification and reconstruction, and reflects on them with reference to the current social context.
The room is acoustically twisted and made to float by booming sound and the voice of Helena Ratka. At the same time, the analogue live projection with overhead projectors by Katrin Bethge immerses the hall in changing colour gradients, makes it disappear into the black and into itself, reappear and create a visual frenzy. In the middle is the figure of the dancer Véronique Langlott. In the interplay of the three media, the space is constantly deconstructed and reconstructed anew on the borderline between calculability and control on the one hand, disturbance, interruption and change on the other. It draws the visitors into a never-ending circulating flow of destruction, confronts them with moments of destabilisation and a feeling of being lost.
