Natalie Bikoro - Encephalitis Lethargica
Encephalitis Lethargica

The piece I am going to present is about Encephalitis Lethargica and disorder in the medium of live/video-based art. I research the idea of misconceptions about the role of the viewer and the performer, and to assimilate an understanding of space, time and the instinctive activity of the brain and body in relation to its closed environment.

I am evaluating the mystery of Encephalitis Lethargica, especially its phenomenology of the consequences of the 'frozen' brain in confrontation to its space.

The space is the womb of the void, its nothingness full of action and the blood cells of the brain are the barriers of the prison.

Designed for navigating and drawing space, and to corrupt the senses of touch, smell, location, hearing, sight and time in opposition to its space.
