NachKlang / 2010

Audio installation
(in collaboration with Jens Heitjohann)

Four monitors are located in every corner of a room. Every voice is dedicated to one monitor. The voices report on sound and noise events, interrupted by (in max.) three other voices. The composition of voices occurs under different criteria, like in regards to its content or acoustic character of the voices. In such a way voices and reports of different origin encounter themself and shape an acoustic picture of an utpoian place.

“You’re walking. And you don’t always realize it,
but you’re always falling.
With each step, you fall forward slightly.
And then catch yourself from falling.
Over and over you’re falling.
And then catching yourself from falling.
And this is how you can be walking and falling at the same time.“
aus Laurie Andersons „Walking and Falling“: Big Science – Songs from United States I-IV

gegangen werden / 2009

Audiospaziergang (auf der Stelle)

Schauspielhaus Frankfurt/Main
in the context of Flaneur – Der Kongress, based at the Schauspielhaus Frankfurt

gegangen werden will walk you on the spot, you will move forward or rather you will get moved forward for not moving away from the spot. There is no question for the “Whereto”, we will go where.

It is thought as a moment, in which you get lost. And afterwards another moment and another one. An aimless labyrinth, in which you stroll aurally between spaces and thoughts. An abidance in walking, a moved pausing. Undesigned, full of leisure, without aim and reason. A moved perception instrument on the spot, a given rhythm, which is only at home in movement.

The presented video is the recording of the correspondent performance.
The performance, made for camera and public, exist of the simple intention to smile. The duration of the performance depends on the conditions of the place, where it is hosted – in this case the four-hours opening time of the gallery.

The smile, held over hours, develops to a examination, to a mask and back. The gesture of smiling is in a permanent survey itself, over the length its fragile corpus reveals the abyss and the collapse of control over the own face.
