Copernicus Drift

Emmily Roesling

In Copernicus Drift four women are dancing together, evoking a space that contemplates the notion of paradigm shift: an irreversible advancement within a discipline and the tension generated between new knowledge and the inevitable coming to an end of established world views.

Copernicus Drift meanders in the private and the cosmic, in intimacy and theory. These overlapping ambiguities, drifting time and space, are linked to sensations of anxiety and grief, paradoxically experienced as a doubling of a wishful anticipation of what has yet to come.

Emmilou Roessling (DE)

with Amanda Barrio Charmelo, Hanako Hayakawa and Rachell Bo Clark

Emmilou Rößling’s work evolves around questions concerning representation and perception, often striving towards different forms of camouflage, and using different media, including dance, performance, textiles and sculpture, with an interest in occupying zones of indeterminacy. Emmilou studied choreography in Gießen and at the Amsterdam University of the Arts and fine arts at the Städelschule Frankfurt. Recent works include THE FRATERNITY (2020), FLUFF (2019), WATER COOLER CHAT (2018) presented in venues such as Judson Church NYC, Sophiensaele Berlin, Arsenic Lausanne, Beursschouwburg Brussels, Mousonturm FFM and Frankfurter Kunstverein.
