Werden bewegliche Sachen, 2016 - Performance with site-specific installation: Two walls (210 x 320 cm. each), two video-projections, two charcoal sticks and two performers: Johanna Brunner and Laia Ventayol. Duration: 6 hours.
I’m concerned about the topic of belonging to a place. How are boundaries set down? I was once looking at a drawn map of the island where I come from. I could see how one only line defined the limits of that place. This performance is about long, quiet and almost automatic movements, that affect the body because of an ever lasting issue: To place the limits. The duration of the action is 6 hours. Through time it opens up a space in between, which is not here (the land), but also not there (the sea).
