Sculpture Luggage, a Piece of Performance

2016
Sculpture-performance
Balsa wood (solid), covered with epoxy
55 x 35 x 25 cm, ongoing
Centrale Fies, Dro (IT) and Stichting NDSM-werf, Amsterdam (NL)

This piece is a solid wooden object that exactly fits the hand luggage requirements for European airlines, and could also be defined as an ongoing performance project. Flying with the object, Sijben offers an accidental art encounter to her fellow travelers and airline staff. In artist talks and conversations she shares these traveling experiences and the insights that conversations along the way give her, with a wider audience. 

In exchange for a report, the work is available to be your travel companion, too.

This work was made for the finals of the Live Performance Act Award 2016 at Centrale Fies in Dro (IT). Later that year it was re-shown at Stichting NDSM-werf Amsterdam. Carpenter José van Gelderen has been a great support in the production process of this work.
