Olga Benedicte’s performance Repeat in the same form (Opus II, minor differences)explores the contact between viewer, material and performer. The work reflects acts of a ritualistic, meditative and instinctive character, in reference to the digital phenomenon ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) and to the movements of piddocks. Movements which make materials alter their shape. The work expands every time it is performed as the repetition also gives way for new interpretations. The performance was first shown at the opening of SENSE ME at Trapholt Museum for Modern Art and Design. The artist thanks sound composer Emil Vodder K. and ceramicist Signe Marie Bærnthsen for their contribution in creating the artwork.
