During Art Basel, Trauma unveils a seminal performance piece, showcasing an ongoing, interdisciplinary creative exchange between Swedish artist Anna Uddenberg and American musician Eartheater at Kaserne Basel. This collaborative showcase departed from an interweaving of the provocative visual themes of Uddenberg’s sculpture Climber (pierced rosebud) — a striking commentary on hyper-sexualization in consumer culture and the increasingly blurred lines between authenticity and fabrication — with the avant-garde musical expressions of Eartheater.

A manifestation of Uddenberg’s canonical artistic practice, stage elements combine features of various sculptural works, with Eartheater, for the very first time, assuming the role of an animated iteration — becoming the embodiment of the work’s central discourse. The performance is set to challenge and expand the audience’s perceptions of the intersections between contemporary art and music, presenting a compelling, multi-sensory experience that questions traditional artistic boundaries.
