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!


This residency was made possible with funding from Amt für Kultur und Denkmalschutz Dresden.
