Artist in Residence (2007)

During summer 2006 I visited the worlds deepest man made whole at the Kola Peninsula in Russia. One year later I found myself on the other side of it.
While presenting my piece Time will show (detail) and the video installation Stills in the context of Borderline Festival in Beijing 2007 I was invited to do my own research in an Artist Residency program. During the research period I created two small works. One was a routine I could perform as a daily practice in the studio. I called this a space/ trace and it was a 360° travel through space. Space trace is a pratice of space. A relation to space. Opportunities of a particular space. A space transforming into surfaces of support. Space as a trace of movement.
The other work was an installation where I turned the whole studio upside down by hanging all the objects in the ceiling (some were also removed) and then entered inside.

Artist Residency invited by Theatre in Motion at beiLAB/Beijing, 22 June - 14 July 2007 with Mette Edvardsen and Heiko Gölzer.
