Post aus Colombo

Post aus... ist eine einmal jährlich stattfindende Kunstaktion, bei der ich Drucke und Zeichnungen, die inspiriert von Reisen und vor Ort entstehen, an Kunstfreunde verschicke. Die Käufer wissen dabei vorher nicht, was sie bekommen, nur wann und von wo. Bisher gab es schon Post aus Paris, Breslau, Wien und Chongqing (China).

In diesem Jahr werde ich dafür einen ganzen Monat lang in Colombo, Sri Lanka arbeiten. 
Post aus Colombo kostet pauschal 50€, ist limitiert und kann ab sofort unter studio@ellabecker.de bestellt werden.

About my participation:
On my first day at the artist residency in Chongqing I met the Vaga artist duo. They were the other guest artists and we would share a flat and a studio for a month. Quickly we began to engage in deep conversations about identity and I decided to do a work based on one of their performative concepts. In their videos you will see a splitscreen with a stream of photos on both sides. They approach each other on a street. First you won´t see anything except a street but when they come closer, step by step, the other person with the camera appears on the screen.

Last autumn I got rid of my flat, my studio and nearly all my belongings except some clothes and my work. I started a journey alone that brought me to six countries so far. At this stage of my life I have a special approach to the question of identity. 
Who am I without the frame of society (of my home country) and without everyday routine? What does a person really need? When does free become loose? What is home? Can I be home to myself? 
In my version of the performance I come closer to a steady cam that is constantly taking pictures of this process and I eventually close my eyes for the last steps. 
In the second performance I stand still with eyes closed on a sidewalk in Huang Jue Ping, where our residency is located in Chongqing. The camera approaches me from far, while people walk by. Intense minutes of insecurity and trust in a stranger, deliberately blind for some minutes that stretched to eternity.

I am looking forward to the opening. If in Chongqing, come by for the full Vaga experience!
