Sequence of a Horse in Motion, 2020
VR experience for Oculus Go
Sequence of a Horse in Motion VR Installation is the documentation of a dream by the artist Katharina Haverich. A man hangs upside down and is circled by a horse. Using a VR headset, the spectator is invited to step into the artist's original dream sequence as well as assume the performer's position in the live version of the piece. "Sequence of a Horse in Motion" was originally staged as a live art event, performed by a dancer and a horse in front of an audience.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Katharina Haverich studied Acting in Zurich, Theatre and Professional Practice in Coventry, England, and Theater Studies in Berlin. She worked at Thalia Theater and Kampnagel in Hamburg as well as for The Wooster Group in New York. During three years of freelance work at Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin she assisted Silke Bake, Tania Bruguera, Nevin Aladag, Okwui Enwezor, Omer Fast and Züli Aladag. Katharina Haverich has been collaborating with the Argentinian artists Emilio García Wehbi and Maricel Álvarez, !KF – Institute for Artistic Research, choreographer Martin Nachbar, Zentrum für Politische Schönheit and art label internil. She was selected for the mentoring program for emerging artists at Performing Arts Program Berlin.

Her work challenges the ephemeral nature of both live art and dreams, as she explores experimental formats of reenactment and reactivation.
