“Bodies tune down together:
moments of intense intimacy through synchronization;
a slowed down depiction of the co-presence of the elements
one finds in the exterior of urban life.” *
Since 2008, David Bergé has been making Walk Pieces, during which the artist guides participants in silence along a precise trajectory and within a precise timeframe through textures and infrastructures that comprise the city. Walking together resonates with the phenomenological minutiae of street life.
Walk Pieces have passed through ancient, modern and contemporary infrastructures: a museum without a floor, in the proximity of containers being offloaded from trucks, through narrow alleys and over large squares, through the bedroom of an art collector, the stage of an opera and an almost finished metro tunnel.
The exhibition A Walk in High Resolution is a visual and spatial travel book that revisits Bergé’s silent Walk Pieces in Berlin, Ostend, Vienna, Istanbul, Aalst, Tokyo, Brussels, Tbilisi, Thessaloniki and Seoul, cross-sectioned with our personal geographies.
Once again we are walking together.
