In recent projects, his focus has been on the distribution of space. He questions how spatial conventions affect the way we experience and move through private/public spaces. Considering people’s preconceptions of spatial conventions and through slight shifts, or manipulations he searches for unexpected intersections between different components of a space.
In this context, Avdal also questions how technology is being used or, can be used in acquiring new meanings, and perceptions on the human body and on our daily surroundings. He investigates the blurred distinction between what is artificial and what is organic, by integrating different technologies in such a way that they become charged with presences, acquiring some kind of human quality.
During the last 12 years he has produced and created 14 different performance pieces. He is currently touring internationally his last creations: you are here, Field Works-hotel and Field Works-office. As well producing and presenting two new projects Borrowed Landscape – premiered Yokohama Oct 2011, and nothing’s for something premiered at Kaaitheater in Brussels in Belgium on 23 March 2012.
