[about]

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.

created and performed by kathryn gohmertmartina jacobiatsuko mochida and malak yacout saleh.

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.

IN KIND EXCHANGE + THE STROKE OF A PEN | ifa gallery | Brussels

.

sergey balovin brings his mad talent and energy to brussels this afternoon for an experimental happening presented as part of THE STROKE OF A PEN group exhibition during it’s last week at ifa gallery.

sergey has spent the last few years traveling around the world engrossed in his project, IN KIND EXCHANGE.

IN KIND EXCHANGE POSTER - website

in a commitment to sustain all his daily needs while strictly avoiding monetary transactions, he has been able to survive exclusively through goods exchanged with people that are excited to trade tangible, useful things to him for beautiful, customized portraits he makes on site.

the unexpected skill present in sergey’s pen and ink illustrations reflect his classical training as a painter in russia before setting out on the wilder path he navigates now, as an artist with no use for a monetary system.

if you are able to see this happening while it’s ongoing today at ifa gallery, then you are in for a real treat. enjoy.
