PROTOKOLLE PRODUZIEREN – PRODUCING PROTOCOLS

2012 I was invited to draw at at a three days staging/happening “Tagung der Kommune” (something like “Conference of the Commune”) in the function of one of the recorders. The happening was about writing a play in the moment of acting, which means discussing the ideals of a community, political action and about “the true (right) life in the wrong film” – and recording this. Every participant, every visitor and passer-by was instantly part of the play. Happened at Forum Stadtpark, Graz.
At the play “chronik der vorbeilaufenden ereignisse” (“chronicle of events passing by”) in the summer of 2013 I protocolled all of performances. The setting was on the one hand on a street, the Annenstrasse in Graz, on the other hand in a store, where the audience was sitting, and a second layer of the play was happening. Aspects of “passing by”, literally and in the sense of extinction, was the essence of the play.
In autumn of the same year the play “der druckauftrag” (“the print job”) was performed at the Volkshaus, Graz. It was about the difficulties of an office stuff writing an e-mail together with the concern: “It is over” an with the content of closing down the office. Topics like refusal and self empowerment were treated.

“The village with the most beautiful flowers”, an installation for the exhibition “Topping out ceremony” at “Schaumbad – freies Atelierhaus Graz”, 2014.
At a certain time while building studiorooms into the big hall at Schaumbad ¹, the construction looked like a street in a village.
In rural areas of Austria a competition – which village is most beautifully decorated with flowers – is fought in summertime. This custom was the triggering point…
The installation consits of 80 cm long cases full of flowers arranged along the corridor, measuring the 40m exitpath to the new emergecy door. The perspective decrease in size makes the lengh of 40m imaginable.
¹ here you find a foto how the hall looked, when it was empty.
“All my Animals” was an installation in the exhibition “Am Südrand” (At The Southern Edge), Schaumbad – freies Atelierhaus for steirischer herbst, 2014.
The Schaumbad is located in the industrial area of southern Graz, the exhibition was about reasearching the area.
The installation ” All my Animals” was about wildlife in the exhibition space (a 1100m2 huge hall where a bottling plant once was situated) With the help of sausages and sensorcameras the nightlife of mice could be pictured.
