A Scene #32 – #1
On this website and on Facebook I announce small events that will take place at a certain location and at a certain moment in the near future.
Everybody is invited to be at the exact spot at the exact time to contribute to the scene with his/her own simultaneous activity (or inactivity).
A Scene #32: back and forth
30 October, 2021.
I am standing on a bridge over the Río Segura in Ojos (38° 08′ 58″ N 1° 20′ 22″ W), Spain.
At the same time, G. is standing on another bridge over the Río Segura, in Blanca (38° 10′ 46″ N 1° 22′ 41″ W), 7 km upstream. Our phones are on speakerphone and the volume is on maximum.
At 2.20 pm (CEST) I call G.
She picks up. We don’t speak a word, but keep the line open.
We point our phones down at the fast-flowing water under the bridges.
Ten minutes later, at 2.30 pm, we disconnect.
In collaboration with Giuli Grippo.

Heute Morgen is a performative work, carried out on July 1st 2014, in the Kutscherhaus in Recklinghausen, Germany. During the process all visual decisions were made and then again undone. Nothing of the work is left to be shown in the exhibition, except the video documentation of the process.

performance (3 men):
In an old uninhabited vergers house in Dordrecht:
25 jerrycans are stored on the attic, each filled with 10 litres of water.
One by one, they are carried down. Halfway the top stairs they are poured into other, empty jerrycans. The then filled jerrycans are carried one floor lower. Halfway the second stairs they are again poured into empty jerrycans. The now filled jerrycans are carried to the groundfloor.
When all 25 jerrycans arrived at the groundfloor they are one by one emptied on the pavement in front of the house.
Cascade was part of By the sweat of your brow,
an exhibition within the framework of the Urban Explorers Festival 2014

I am standing in front of a white wall.
I get a small round mirror out of my pocket, I put some glue on the back and press the mirror against the wall.
I come very close to the mirror and, by in- and exhaling a few times, I cover it with damp.
I stand back again and wait till all the damp is gone.
I take away the mirror and put it back in my pocket.
