Collective Loom (2018) is a continuation of the work Looming (2016). It is a space-filling spiral, which can be reduced to a flat circle on the floor. The stretch textile material has been processed into a 300 meters long construction. Performers set the installation in motion. As an intertwining loom, the interaction of the performers is if woven into fabric. 

Where Looming investigates the personal scope, Collective Loom connects the field amidst participants of a group. What happens in our ‘in-between space’? 
The sculpture refers to the most basic form in which we are equal: from a circle discussion to circling dances.
In the dimmed performance space, the spectator determines his own time and place. While the performers jointly direct their movement and decide what moments will be highlighted. 


The work is like a wave of change, but there is also a cohesion. Reciprocal processes in nature inspire the neoclassic piano/ synthesizer music, like the seasons and the rhythm of day and night. 

Collective Loom is a durational and improvised performance, whereby the spectator determines his own time and place in the performance space. The work also exists as installation, video/ photo work, and drawings. The work originated in 2018 and is further developed between 2020-2021.
