PLUS-MOTION: Live Performance Art Series is influenced from the Ancient Greek word ‘συγκίνηση < αρχαία ελληνική συγκίνησις < συγκινέω-συγκινώ < σύν+κινώ’.

Through performance art each artist uses their body with movement and chosen materials as objects to become elements and to create distinct and unfamiliar relationships in live performance. The action externalizes, communicates and shares inner concerns and sentiments with the viewers who witness it.

The objective of each artist is to present a situation and an image has been created through the aspiration, individual perception and the sentimental charge originated in the idea process. The roles of performer and viewer can be considered to reach the outer limitations of a physical and mental exhaustion and trails of fiction and reality merge on the threshold of conventional definition.
