Performance Felsentauben
on 3-Channel Installation 2021
Duration 30 minutes, performed on Event Huette X Dahlewitz with Studio Huette

The performance Rock Pigeons was a spontaneous action at the festival day of a Studio Huetten event. On three channels, portraits of pigeons flew from one wall to the other. As background, old walls and stones. I tried to catch the pigeons wherever they appeared, I tried to paint them, to hold them, maybe to have a conversation. It was summer, it was hot. I tried to hold out as long as I could. The wall was filled with the green paint and in between you could make out the shapes of the pigeons. They kept flying as if I wasn't there.

Among my quickly painted brush strokes, the pigeons continued to fly.
Some visitors to the exhibition painted more pigeons on the wall.

I observe movements of animals in the city. I write speculative dialogues between me, the city and the pigeons, based on real facts, like conversations with experts and what I see.
