A MUST SEE

2015
Performance, 45 min
KW Berlin (DE)

A MUST SEE suggested new frames for looking at the public space surrounding KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin. I loosely directed the viewer’s attention by running and performing sports-like exercises in public space. The work suggested new frames for the neighbourhood, showing and using the ‘stages’ that were already present. Now and again the public became performers themselves, simply by being a group with an unusual focus and by literally being placed on stages in relation to passers-by and the audience of the next or previous tour.

Ellen Blumenstein, head curator at KW, Berlin: ‘I enjoyed looking at her in the way she made it bodily, physical but explicitly not-sexual and avoiding display of physical achievement. We were allowed to look in a specific way, not peeping or admiring, the set-up of the body in relation to the surroundings makes it an object in a way we are not accustomed to see it.’

A MUST SEE was shown at KW Berlin within the Performative Minute series, curated by Adela Yawitz.
