Anna Koch is interested in the body as a coordinator of memory and social archive. Her work crosses different fields in an expanded notion of choreography. In her practice there is a strong interest in how art mediates and communicates, how ideas and practices are manifested and activated through dialogue. For TÖNE, she will make a video installation with working hands or workers’ hands with sound by Mats Lindström. See a film of Mats and Anna during their residency for TONE by Zara Arrehed at LV21 here.
