Beyond Constructed Remains is a continuation of Shiran Eliaserov’s research around the potentialities of myth-making through the excavation of metaphor, performative action, and object-centered social relations. In Eliaserov’s prior piece, Beyond Control, which was performed in the Parochial Church in Berlin, she examined the ecstatic potential of various rope practices and the ways power condenses itself in the material and metaphor of “the Rope”. In this work, presented in the gym of Hausburgschule, Eliaserov expands her research on rope practices into the realm of sports training, exposing their possible origins as survival techniques, and questioning what can still be learned from them today. Beyond Constructed Remains is a collaborative effort towards a sphere that will host participants and performers in a shared transformative process, interweaving its symbolic and aesthetic dimensions to open up a space at the intersection of history, myth, and fiction. The audience is invited to take an active role and experience themselves as participants and as an ephemeral backdrop to the work. Through this work, Eliaserov asks the question of what is left beyond the remains of our constructed past. What are we “practicing” for and as a consequence, what is held in our bodies?
