Sophiensaele Berlin

In this solo, Jee-Ae Lim creates an imagined space where a body turns into blurred figures, a body that is a millimeter off of everything; a monster, a demonic unicorn, a body looking at you as an active agent and a body that is being looked at as the other. Within this unstable space the body fails to fit its image, which is constructed of the known or what is considered to be known. The body resets the borders of reality, personal stories, memories, fantasies, myths, and lies. The performance gradually removes the possibility of reproducing accustomed images, which rule the individual body. Subjunctive histories are built placing the body beyond the unitary historical context.
