In her work developed for NORDWIND, Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen creates an ethereal stage set made of fabric, which is always in a state somewhere between stillness and movement. The installation is a costume, musical instrument and stage set at the same time, using hiding and disguise, but is also the expression of beginning and end, exit and entrance, origin and dissolution and the temporality of all manifestations. Working with musicians from the Lydenskab Ensembles for classical music, Rasmussen and her dancers interact with the floating set until it becomes a performer itself: apparently motionless, then vibrating and unstoppable.
Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen, born in 1970, is an interdisciplinary performance artist who lives in Denmark. Her video piece Absolute Exotic was part of the exhibition Global Feminism in 2007, organised by Elizabeth A. Sackler in the Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum. In 2008, Rasmussen won the Eckersberg Medal, an award from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. In 2011, she was part of the Danish pavilion at the Venice Biennale.
