Lea Collet's Structural Weakness was the inaugural exhibition at s-l-i-c-e and was streamed live on YouTube 09.04.2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic. The performance was initiated by Lea Collet out of the comfort of her living room in London, from where she issued instructions to dancer Hanna Kritten, based at Ufer Studios, Berlin. Through Collet's narration and Kritten's movements they brought about a data flow which activated multiple screens of information.

 

Separated and isolated, the performance utilised the relationship between artist and performer to consider the use of tracking software and the navigation of virtual and public spaces in a time of pandemic. 

'Like silence and stillness we experience space as an absence. An interval or relationship between things. Some people have decided to impose their bodies. While others have decided to dissolve them’

'social choreography. We are the ones arranging people in space. Structural weakness. Only one simple rule.'

I am a network - I articulate, record, measure and engage with my corporeal self and corporeal others. Data is flesh and everything is URL - What does it mean to move without a body?' 

'Over the past few weeks i’ve watched people navigating different spaces. The park has become a cage in which we are only allowed to go for outdoor exercise. No sitting for more than two minutes'

'follow me and I follow you

follow me and I follow you

follow me and I follow you

follow me and I follow you

follow me and I follow you

follow me and I follow you'
