Slow Dance is envisaged as an excerpt from a world where everything is done at its own pace. The work hosts an experience of slowness, not necessarily in duration, but rather in quality and as a means of presence in an otherwise accelerated society. Most slow art deals with stretching time in order to provide spaces for reflection. Slow Dance is thus at the same time an act of individual and collective resistance to living defined by capitalism and a space for freedom to do things at their right speed. It points us towards our mortality and finitude and the question what do I do with my time? Slow Dance is an antidote in favor of the sensual. It uses the sensory and visual realms to give the viewer this opportunity not just for reflection and reverie, but also for examining how to be together.
