Audio score duration: 8 min.

Debuted at Hold Hands group exhibition, Kunstverein Leipzig (2021)









Which imprint do inherited memories have on the development of our identity? And how can we decode memories from our ancestors? The project Bygone Remnants – that are yet to remind us of their presence interweaves auto-biographical experiences with research in science, to extract and liquidify memories that are stored in the bodies cells. The work consists of the textile banner and the audio score Your body is a water vessel.

Your body is a water vessel (2021) is a score which is available as an audio recording and illustrated transcription. This score reflects Dorniak's ongoing engagement with the thematic field of intergenerational trauma. In Your body is a water vessel (2021) the audience is invited to perceive their bodies as vessels and to feel the external (traumatic) vibrations through wave-like movements.


Supported by Hold Hands residency in Leipzig, Germany.
