Diane Mahín is a Dutch-Iranian performance maker and sociologist. She makes performative worlds in which sound and image are the driving forces. Working with sound reflects her desire to be faced with highly subjective, confrontational and immersive forms of reality. Diane scrutinizes the human body as a material object in order to dissect social constructions, as she wishes to grasp their absurdity and humor. Death and nothingness form the underlying motives of her work.
After her studies at Goldsmiths, University of London and Maastricht Institute of Performative Arts, Diane is currently exploring operatic principles within her practice at Sandberg Institute.
GUT imagines how humans behave when their bodies are turned inside out.
You will meet a human whose gut-sounds are amplified. The gut-human’s thoughts, actions, communications, movements, and feelings, are all determined by his gut sounds.
This performative world draws attention to the thin boundary between life and death, conscious reasoning and the subconscious gut, resulting in a visceral and absurd experience. Visitors are invited to walk in and out of this durational performance.
