call me Me

this I know

I move fluidly and submissively
to all sides at the same time

I flow out of nothing
I'm there

I am

but what

(excerpt from Made in China)


The Chinese landscape painting, Shanshui, is based on opposites, such as what falls and what rises, the visible and the invisible. But these are opposites that at the same time are in continuity and harmony with each other. Standing in front of a Chinese Shanshui painting, you will experience that the subject and linearity dissolves. The painting has no fixed perspective. The distance between the viewer and the painting disappears.
And look – a Path appears.

Inspired by the Shanshui painting, Made in China is a future-mythical text and sound installation of a creation narrative about the elements, the things, the resources, the products and the diverse ‘I’.

In the forest at Nesodden, Made in China explores where nature ends and culture begins – and what purpose man-made technology can have. With an eco-technical bent, Made in China plays with a panpsychic sensibility and approach that makes the divide between East and West, nature and culture, body and mind, mythology and rationality a little less obvious.

Made in China is a geographical detour from Klouman/Becker/Barratt-Due’s America project, which includes the Hedda award-winning performance We, the People and the critically acclaimed The Shining City.

Brent Busk teater and its art activities are part of Espen Klouman Høiner's doctoral project “The actor’s creative space – artistic strategies for the autonomous actor in a text-based and future-mythical theater” at the Oslo Academy of Arts, Theater Academy.
