Beyond Vision

︎ Deutsche Version

What happens when the vision disappears and we can no longer experience our environment as before? Do the other senses sharpen? Does reality become blurred?

Blindfolded and wearing headphones, the participants are guided by a silent companion by the hand through an overgrown environment. Together they embark on a dream-like journey through binaural sound recordings. The guides lead gently and safely through this borderline experience. Inner images and the blurring of realities are explored. The one-to-one audio performance is an invitation to surrender to unfamiliar situations, to observe oneself, to overcome fears and to be completely with oneself.

Beyond Vision is an audio performance by Ilona Marti, produced in 2019 for the project Tracks in a Box. Tracks in a Box was curated by B_Tour in collaboration with CLB Berlin, made possible by the kind support of the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe.
