In my performance, I take up a question Petra Gell posted on social media during the COVID-19 curfew: “HOW MUCH SPACE you have, you need”. She uses a language that connects the abstract and the everyday. Everyday actions are moved from private to public space.
In order to create a structure that I can orientate myself by during the performance, I choose to work with the terms “limitation” and/or “(sub)division”. These boundaries are defined by means of materials, spaces, lines or colours and allow me to move between freedoms (open spaces) and constraints (fences). It is a body of work that foregrounds both the spectator’s and the art-maker’s experience. My performative installations propose a visual experience in which temporality plays an important role, inherent in the space created in the moment, inviting the viewer to take on the role of observer, the observer. The practice of Instant Composition creates ephemeral images of short duration and is to be understood as a draft of a fiction.
