Embodying the unspoken

Forkroppsligande av det outtalade

– the experience of medical care, place, memory, movement

Swedish title : Förkroppsligande av det outtalade – upplevelsen av vård, plats, minne, rörelse

An installation based performance by Anna Bergström and Richard Widerberg.

The piece investigates what’s human in the body of illness and the history of medical care. An embodiment of the unspoken exists in-between the lines of historical medical descriptions and texts as well as within the personal stories. In such a way we meet memories and vibrations present in the spaces within the museum and its objects – as a museum, archive and hospital.

The piece was performed at The Medical History Museum, Gothenburg, and premiered in September 2014. This project is part of a framework of research about the human need of spaces for reflection and everyday presence.
