Sabina Holzer (Text/Video, choreographed intervention), Bruno Szenk (technical assistance sculpture ), TE-R (3D Modeling and Animation, Sound), Rachel Müller (Voice).ar/ge kunst and BAU present Plant Plant, a project by artist Katrin Hornek emerging from her research in South Tyrol between 2020 and 2021 within the context of ar/ge kunst’s One Year-Long Research Project/Fifth edition and the BAU Residency.
Katrin Hornek’s Plant Plant consists of her solo exhibition and a choreographed intervention at the former Montecatini factory with performer Sabina Holzer (Factory Walk). The exhibition presents a new film and a series of sculptures that situate the chemical element of nitrogen as the prism through which to look at the history of fertilizer production with its immediate and planetary entanglements.

5th of February FACTORY WALK
In response to Katrin Hornek’s invitation, the performer Sabina Holzer will choreograph a public event, the FACTORY WALK to introduce a bodily experience, framed by the architecture and equipment of the Ex-Montecatini Factory in Sinigo, Merano.
FACTORY WALK expands from the research of Plant Plant and entangles the molecular and earthly perspectives with the physical encounter of the site to open the senses and the imagination. It will trace the resemblances between organic and inorganic matter, between the natural, cultural and industrial as interrelated bodies we share and of which we are a part.
PLANT PLANT is a project by Katrin Hornek
This exhibition was produced in collaboration with Phileas – A Fund for Contemporary Art
With the support of:
WWTF – Wiener Wissenschafts-, Forschungs- und Technologiefonds

Poetic of Scores @ MUK Vienna

Lecture | Workshop | Intervention

„Scores invite us to step out of the studio and into the world; to trust and engage in explorations of movement. They don’t let us get stuck in habits, but instigate us to pursue playfulness and precision in our dance and performances.“ (Sabina Holzer)

Poetics of Scores explores scores and instructions for actions as a method of composition for interventions in public spaces and asks whether this particular methodological approach stimulates a specific aesthetic and ethic in the performative settings.

The transdisciplinary approach will be presented with a focus on the use of scores in the work of Anna and Lawrence Halprin and their social choreographies as an example in a lecture.

Based on this, we will practically explore the conditions of scores in a three-hour workshop. What forms of communities are generated with this practice? What kind of togetherness or being-with is created when attention is focused on sensory perception? What kind of spaces for action are created by this?

With these investigations we will design an intervention in public space in the 2nd part of the workshop and reflect on it together.

Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga®
Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga® (founded by Sadie Nardini) is a mindful and invigorating yoga that incorporates pilates and release techniques in the execution of asanas. In this yoga we combine our breath especially effectively with the flow of movement. The focus is on the deep muscles of the pelvic floor, psoas and lower back. I prepare different focuses depending on the occaisions.
