Mach Das Licht Aus

2008 / 20 minutes / live performance / Happenstudio, Berlin, DE
Collaboration with Anna Niedhart

With my face turned to a wall, I’m standing next to this wall in a frozen position. I’m wearing light grey nylons all over my body. Anna had been painting some figures and elements onto the nylons before.

A big black light, the only light source, makes the room a kind of violet.

In the background you can hear clapping and laughing like in cheap comedy series.

Anna is spraying the wall and me with uv colour.

I turn around so the public can see a second painting by Anna on my body. My silhouette is on the wall now. I take off the nylons and stand in my underwear.
