Radio Gym Effect, 2020

30 seconds video | sound

Radio Gym Effect proposes choreographies inspired by the popular Morning Gym Show broadcasted on Japanese public service television channel NHK. Broadcasted at 9 am, this program mainly addresses mothers and housewives.

As the rhythm speeds up, the objective of a desirable body gets out of hand and the urge of self-optimization and satisfaction is troubled by feelings of alienation. And hopefully, the wish to escape the ever-accelerating online circulation of body ideals and the desire for an emancipated sexuality and identity awakes.

Radio Gym Effect is part of in-app exhibition FitArt – Female Body.
