Bringing the letters O and U together, the second solo show of Ode de Kort at SpazioA called TWOO UU combines multiple works (both present and absent) through text, performance, installation, video and photography, consistently shifting from one work to the other. Central to De Kort’s practice is the thought of working-together, by appointing O and U as her co-workers, they inhabit every work the artist makes.

Based on (absent) text-films, the exhibition stages a play of transliteration from script to body and back. The text-films are solely on view at her solo show UU TWOO at De Brakke Grond, Amsterdam, opening on Septemper 20, 2019. Deliberately aligning the titles of the two shows together, TWOO UU (SpazioA, Pistoia) and UU TWOO (De Brakke Grond, Amsterdam), both exhibitions present different scriptural choreographies based on the same text (a new artist book published at het balanseer), thus equally working-together.

In TWOO UU, the exhibition functions as a loop. Curves and lines mimic bodies of paper/screens/…, playing upon multiple perspectives, and are inhabited by text and absent performers. These ‘performers’, photographic registrations taken from two previously performed pieces called Walk with U and O-arm, display the arms and legs of the artist and act as stand-ins for her absent body during the exhibition. Consequently, bodies become letters and letters become bodies.
