Rehearsal 04: Dormant remains
White Horse/Twin Horse
For White Horse/Twin Horse, Revital Cohen and Tuur Van Balen utilize the theatrical infrastructure of De Brakke Grond to present, transform and research their work in a series of iterations. The fourth rehearsal of the exhibition is an interpretation by curator Christina Li.
The run will try to chart the inherent motions of transmutations within and throughout the changing presentations of Cohen & Van Balen’s process-based investigations. It will draw specific focus on artefacts or ephemera that contour and inform their work, through which unlikely and otherwise elusive threads might come to the fore.
