The Fall

The Fall is the first place winner of the Re:Humanism Art Prize and is composed of two complementary sections: a performance and an installation.
The artwork starts with the analysis of a Boston Dynamics video in which we see a robot that is pushed to fall in order to test its balance.
The performer action, on the contrary, consists in following a vocal tutorial that suggests the exact procedure to fall like an automaton. If in an initial phase the performance is charged with a strong emotionalism due to the approaching of the fall, the mechanical succession of gestures makes the performative body more and more artificial. With this work, Giang Hoang Nguyen questions the technological advancement that is making us post-human. The symbol of this uncertain future is the fall, able to lead to progress or to a ruinous failure.
