Public art intervention/gallery installation
Live postcards: installation and performance in Weimar/Venice
Table, table cloth, laptop, web-camera, internet connection
Sitting at the table, day-dreaming… A postcard: thinking about home, travelling by mind. Postcards are always testimonies of the past, even if it was the recent past. And postcards don´t change.
A table and a chair are placed in the Venice-gallery. On the table-surface appear live-postcards directly from Weimar: images from somewhere else rendered into my present space. Like postcards these images show a certain site and also certain, maybe random events that happen just now at a very different location. Weimar becomes part of everyday life in Venice and potentially the other way round. Especially as the live-stream can be used by the German public to send messages to Italy.
From Weimar with Love!
This installation was part of the group show «Export-Heimat» by AG Tiefseh shown at the gallery of the foundationBevilacqua La Masa in Venice, April 28 until May 15. The postcards/performances could be seen simultaniously on the internet and on Theater-Square in Weimar
