„HOME-LAND-LUXURY/ Home Slaughtering”“
January- April 2012 Berlin

“Destruction and Reconstruction. The ladder of hierarchies, up and down. Correlations between: Humans, animals, plants, things. History, Fate, Struggle. Winners and Losers at the bottom line. Fraction. Taking the bull by the horns. Identifying with the opponent. Embracing weakness. Sacrificial burning. Taimed, shot and left behind. Or born to fight. Moments before the deadly bolt-shot you drop your fears. Return to GO.”

“Home Slaughtering: Embracing the animal mind.
Home.
Texture.                      Emptiness, Content.                             Fragility, Movement.
Archaic structures invade space.
One Shot.                      Shell is cracking.
         Braking the surface.”

HOME-LAND-LUXURY // HEIMAT-LAND-LUXUS
January 2012- June 2013

The series and theme HOME-LAND-LUXURY developed out of the working title Dress to kill in January 2012.

“Dress to kill”
Januar 2011 to date. Berlin, Padova, Munich, London, Kassel

„The performance Dress to kill is about movement in a constant limbo, about eviction and loss, the harsh circumstances of everyday crisis in different places and phases of human existence, about displacement and homecoming, aggression, power play and poetry.
The brick of coal which is destroyed in every performance of the cycle „the end of post colonialism“, is a dark martial pressure zone, a symbol of a world that has come to an end.
We are still living according to old rules and well preserved structures with a certain knowledge that we can suppress only with the harshest methods in order to let us look decently human.
We kill ourselves in small doses rather than take the next step to leave our dead hulls behind. The systems we created are so rigid and the infrastructures of relations we built have become so absurdly controlled that we sometimes seem to be unable to relate to our closest friends or family members anymore.- Or is it ourself we cannot relate to?
The romance of meeting, listening, feeling, understanding and embracing in a moment of awareness and experience is being taken from us, it is locked away in a dark box, put on a shelf with many other boxes similar to it. Gestures and movement, friendship and openness, love and passion are on the stake. Do we care? We try to focus- and fail. What is left? What will we be but a traceable image on a search engine? Will our Face Book profiles survive us?
-The post modern colonialists will devour their own hearts and swallow their own souls. They will spit out the digested immaterial self as a non composable rest that will last forever as toxic waste not to be mentioned again while existence passes the border from Now to Now.-“ July 4th 2011
