The festival "Performancear o morir" leads us to different landscapes.
In all three different landscapes (mountains at the Valle de los Monjes, desert of Samalayuca, and the pine forest near Norogatchi) nature has such an extreme own language and aesthetics that I as an artist do not feel that something needs to be added.
So the installation of my body into the landscape in a certain and conscious manner is the only way I can express my artistic intention.
On a spot, where I feel welcome I build a circle around my “human presence” with found materials from the environment and interact with the present forces. I ask the spirits of the environment if they agree that I implement my art here.
The only materials added to the installation are those that I wear on my body.
Found testimonies of human civilization (plastic bottles, cans, cloth etc.) I put in the center of the circle and ask the spirits of nature for forgiveness for our human behavior.
At the end I dismantle the traces of my actions and take the garbage with me.
