Felipe Sáez Riquelme: FOTOGRAFIEN DES PAZIFISCHEN OZEAN
Für Körper, Stimme, Loop Pedal und Gegenstände. Diese Sprechstücke (noch in Bearbeitung) sind ein fragmentarisches Porträt des Pazifischen Ozeans. Aus mehreren Perspektiven versuche ich die Geschichte des Austauschs zwischen der ersten und der dritten Welt neu in den aktuellen Kontext setzen.
Felipe Sáez Riquelme (Santiago de Chile, 1986) ist Anthropologe, Dichter und Performance-Künstler. Sein literarisches Werk ist breit gefächert und interdisziplinär, da er das Schreiben mit Klangkunst, Performance und visuellen Elementen verbindet.

Seine Performance “Himnosis” (2017) wurde für die Performance-Biennale BP.17 in Buenos Aires ausgewählt.
