Naja Ankarfeldt graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen 2013. She now studies ArtScience MA at The Art Academy of The Haag, the Netherlands. She researches repetitive forms, dynamic and spatial patterns to produce aesthetic tactile experiences. Through her visual artwork she investigates how we are connected to nature, and how the knowledge of shapes and biological structures can give us existential information and aesthetic experiences. www.najaankarfeldt.com
Spine Spinning is a performance investigating the movement of the spine in the human body inspired by Étienne-Jules Marey’s Etude de la locomotion humaine: Homme marchant avec une baguette fix ée le long de la colonne vert ébrale. Focusing on the perception of the body through the control of light and sound amplification, the performer transforms the human body into an unknown creature. Wen Chin Fu www.wenchinfu.com
