Mycelium is the second part of a series of the artistic exploration of the maternal body.
Based on body images from society, microbiology, folk tales and dreams, we embark on a search for the maternal body. The boundaries between organisms become blurred – we exchange information between yeast bacteria and skin cells, between eardrum and optic nerve. We grow, we spread out, we split into a thousand pieces. Where does my body begin? And am I actually here voluntarily?
Mycelium is a performance by Annina Mosimann and Fernando Munizaga in which sound and movement are inseparably intertwined. Complex sound installation, instruments, microphones, objects, materials and the player’s body and voice are connected and influence each other – the artists and their surroundings engage in a dialogue and it is no longer who gives the impulses and who receives them.
Annina Mosimann (*1991, Bern) is a puppeteer, performer, musician and visual artist. She studied Fine Arts at HSLU Lucerne and Contemporary Puppetry at HMDK Stuttgart (BA 2021). In her artistic work she explores the interaction of sound and movement, the encounter of living and dead matter. The focus is on bodies, objects and material – moving between performing and visual arts as well as experimental music.
