Don’t get mad! Crush people! Calm down! Spy! Listen! Slow down! Inform! Be thin! Respect your elders! Grow up! Decrease! Be happy! Have sex! Stay positive! Resist! Stay ignorant! Stop! Dream! Multitask! Love yourself! Eat! Get out there! Stay ignorant! Go! Respect other opinions! Live! Be open! Start! Diet! Progress! Stay young! Be yourself! Die! Respect the rules!

Flourish! Daydream! Be fat! Don’t touch yourself! Succeed! Respect leaders!

“Silence” is a performative installation exploring the potential power we have over each other. For seven days, eight hours each day, I will be installed in the gallery window and negotiate power between myself and the audience through only my gaze.

ON OFF MOMENTS
Curated by Amelie Wedel. Presented artists: David Horvitz, Daniel Kötter, Mikka Wellner, Murat Adash, Laura McLardy, Gretta Louw, David Kroell.

The exhibition on Off moments coincides with the Month of Performance Art-Berlin, using topics integral to performance as point of departure. Performance art, characterized by a specific dependence on time and non-repeatability, is an extreme form of engaging with moments of presence and absence. The exhibition displays works outside the realm of performance art by young artists that reveal a moment of absence in different ways, thereby disclosing paradoxes of presence / absence, visibility / invisibility, and self-referentiality / external-referentiality. What happens when the absent comes into focus, assuming equal prominence to the present? In presenting this notion of absence in a variant artistic form, this exhibition will initiate a dialogue with the art of performance.
