Nicole Bachmann works across video, text, sound and performance. She situates the body as a site of knowledge production used to explore alternative discourses within language and form. By using movement and voice, Bachmann intends on subverting languages power and political relations that she believes is attached to normative vocabulary, opening up spaces or gaps in which to “embody vocabulary” where new meaning can be created. In becoming other-too, Bachmann wants to question the inherent patriarchal qualities of language through her own and others bodies, providing a refreshing and relevant agency.
Her predominantly collaborative practice reflects this subversion, evoking a sense of togetherness and reciprocity, searching for meaning away from the prescribed set of definitions she considers language exists within. Activating the individual as well as the group, Bachmann wants to inquire into how to become bodies of social and political change.
Working predominantly in mediums which are still underrepresented with the art market because of their non-physical, temporal aspects, Bachmann again wants to interrupt tendencies inherent to a system. (courtesy of Vitrine gallery)
