Have you ever asked yourself when stereotypes were born?
When did our social behaviour infiltrate our body language?
Who embodies which standards?
Who is disregarded in the process?
Can we live up to what we have learned subconsciously?
In the Face of Exhaustion
Developing since 2022
The focus of the performance is to create a space for exchange.
As an artist, I am particularly interested in the perspective of the participants and the potential of the
moment to keep changing depending on the individual. In this way, the lecture-performance becomes
a unique experience each time, which offers the opportunity to exchange ideas and provides impulses for
the further development of my work.
The pictures show the documentation of a participatory moment in the summer of 2022, in which other artists
also took part. I had already reached my own point of exhaustion, so I was able to observe Anais Chabeur (filmmaker)
using her camera as a performance tool. While she was pushing her physical limits with her tool, she was filming
Sarah Smolders (painter and sculptor) who was in turn using a stone as a performance tool.
