the living installation, entre quatro paredes, plays with intimacy, boundaries and borders by transporting itself through the public sphere by means of four interdisciplinary performers.

walls are no passive objects: as catalysts of change, walls actively reshape and restrict movement. acting as barriers, they can divide communities and isolate individuals, while also visibly and literally connecting strangers in intimate settings and serendipitous encounters.

simultaneously inclusive and excluding, occurring at a site and a “non-site,” entre quatro paredes transforms public spaces into immediate, private spaces within the context of four walls.

WITHIN FOUR WALLS will explore the borders of public and private space. from the inside of the studio, to the outside of the city centre and everything in between, showcasing the many ways that public art can be presented. within the walls of m14, previous projects from (UN)SOUNDS OF BUCHENWALD and HOTEL LEIPZIG will be displayed alongside new interventions inside the space. we will also investigate the site-specific approach and take work to the streets of weimar, emphasising the broadness and range that public art and new artistic strategies has to offer.

seeds | hotel leipzig [performance images]


this performance took place on 16 may, en route to the deutsche zentralbücherei für blinde from the leipzig hauptbahnhof.

roughly three million dandelion seeds were gathered in goethe’s park an der ilm. the seeds were relocated to a suitcase and then transported to leipzig by train. after carrying the suitcase to the entrance of the deutsche zentralbücherei für blinde [german central library for the blind], the suitcase was opened and the seeds handed out personally as ‘post’ to passing pedestrians.

as dandelion plants reportedly have medicinal properties which combat memory loss and decrease  the effects of dementia, the spreading of these seeds by way of this intimate, person-to-person method is intended to cure the repeating spells of memory loss human history continues to experience.
