Artist: Marie Julia Bollansée

Marie Julia Bollansée, based in Antwerp, Belgium, and participating as artist in residence at AIR 3331, will hold her performance "A.W.#3, Artificial Walk #3" for the very first time in Tokyo. For this ephemeral performance, she creates a dress in indigo colored sheep wool, which is knit by her mother. The garment is filled with the artist's personal history and deep relationship to her family, representing what is a powerful spirituality for the purpose of the work of art. She asks for eight people to walk with her. A blue tarpaulin functions as an artificial extension around the body. By walking together, the performers generate A.S., Artificial Spirituality (rather than Artificial Intelligence, or A.I.). Bollansée invites the public to come view the continuation of "Artificial Walks" held throughout the world. In the past, "A.W.#1" was held in Belgium, and "A.W.#2" in Germany.
