A follow-up of Martina and Annie’s Turbulence commission besides, the person I am becoming.

On Object Agency. Collected words and objects – overheard phrases, poetry, academic citations, a piece of concrete, foam, money, a lamp. What if objects ? …

For besides, the person I am becoming, for one month we collected text – overheard phrases, poetry, magazine, academic citations and objects. While preparing we decided the objects should not be personal, not be too beautiful, as ordinary, casual, daily as possible. We wanted the objects to act as much as the words we selected from our collection. This resulted in what Igor Stromajer called a “theory-meditation“. https://vimeo.com/131117816 For besides, the city is not a tree we want to try out another more narrative version of the text collection, to speed up the rhythm and to see what meaning might arise from such a text object layering.

Event in the frame of 6PM Your Local Time Europe: a distributed contemporary art exhibition, taking place all over Europe in art institutions, galleries and artist studios at the same time, and documented online under the same hashtag.
