In the Eye of the Sun, Unity was divided into Duality
The Sun became Life, Life created Mankind
Living in a World of perfect Symmetry
Slaves of Duality while bound one to another
Constantly missing the Balance between our own Extremes
[Text Klaus Schrefler, Translation Quechua-Aymara Paulino
INTIÑAHUI - in the eye of the sun dedicates itself to the facts of
time, body and duality. Three concepts as columns of our being, words which
in this combination maybe associate with buddhism and which - standing alone
- in our western world nearly seem esoteric and pathetic.
However, indipendently from these movements this interdisciplinary and intercultural
arts project forms a circle around the phenomenon of life itself. Its theme
is globalization between the present, the past and the future, from oppression
of indigenous people via revitalizing ancient customs in body culture to the
unity of its individual parts.
The project itself is meant as an explosive statement to global developments,
standig alone and yet unifying - polarizing as a counterpart and harmonising
as supplement. In this way this piece describes the drama of mankind as well
as the drama of the individual human being as well establishing a miraculous
equation.....by equating the individual as well as mankind with the sun with
all its power, transforming as well as destructive!
The theme of this art project is the circle of life, the red line of the
visual presentation are the numbers one to nine, interpreted in terms of
the mythology of indigenious people in the Andes.
The project is realized in various steps:
- .The essential part of the first phase is a movie of nine sequences with
3D-Animation [in Stereo] intended to be shown on big screens. The technological
level of digital media almost demands the symbiosis of classical plastic
arts and new digital media.
- The movie is basis for a second, integrative phase. International artists
are going to interpret the context with their means respectively, which
can be performance, dance, music etc. In the center of these presentations
are indigenious people and their cultural identitiy. The project aims at
connecting the modern and the archaic knowledge, putting together different
disciplines of art, a statement for the balance between extremes.
- The third step consists of public discussions, analysing the situation
of indigenious people subject to changes in the global circumstances and
an the ever growing gap between rich and poor, northern hermisphere and
southern hemisphere, people with access to formal education (supposed to
be educated) and those without access (supposed to be uneducated) and the
resulting changes in social structures.
