During the residency Marlieke Burghouts is going to deepen out the first stages of her research into the embodiment and staging of ‘willfulness’ and ‘willingness’.
(Sara Ahmed Willful subjects Duke Press 2014 )

This research is conducted in relation to the whole body, but in particularly in relation to the action of raising the arm and the diverse meanings and readings this gesture can have.

My interest lays in investigating how the individual body, in this case myself, experiences willingness and willfulness and how that influences the actions and shaping of the body. Where do my decisions spatially and physically bring me?

The work will be created in collaboration with sound artists Jeske de Blauw en Mark IJzerman.
