Tino Seghal

Instead of Allowing Some Thing to Rise Up to Your Face Dancing Bruce and Dan and Other Things, 2007 is a set of movements that are repeated and changed by someone every two hours. As the title of this piece tells, this performance was inspired by the movements in Dan Graham and Bruce Nauman’s works. As the museum connects past, present, and future by preserving and reinterpreting history, Sehgal reinterprets the works of Dan Graham (Roll, 1970) and Bruce Nauman (Wall-Floor Positions, 1968). Although all the dancers repeat the same motions, the movements change according to the viewer’s point of view. Sehgal aims to create a new production paradigm by replacing our unbalanced economic principles with the “transformation of acts” of music and dance. Also, this project is a part of the time-based art that is popular among artists today.
