UN-BEER SONATA

PERFORMANCE–INSTALLATION, 2003

HUNGER FOLLIES

CHICKEN PIECE

The performance-installation Red A Hundred 40 deals with heredity codes and representations of individuality. In order to enable several layers of meanings, this piece attempts to unsettle certain codes, such as cultural conducts, and to restate the discomfort with the apparent resistance of others, such as genetic influences. Its structure, made of eight micro-environments, shifts through biographical subjects, scientific discoveries, confrontation with cultural heredity, the subversion of the audience expectations, political criticism, and artistic obsessions concerning the impact of image and the (in)efficiency of the words.

 

Duration: 1 to 3 hours. The work was originally conceived to be presented at the restrooms at Casa Hoffmann, where the participants could experience the whole work in 15 minutes.
