Six Stones

Performative Installation
ZKM, Karlsruhe
January 6, 2018

All personal possession of the artists were bounded together and suspended on the six strings as a weight for the tension. The strings were the drivers for the processual performing of the sounds collected and selected by the artists, especially for the event. Six suspended objects formed the playground for performative procedure lasted 6 hours until the installation got broken.

 

The horses went down the steep path; stones poured, there was frost. The Spanish border guard put a stamp in our passports, and we went further to the territory of Andorra, to the nearest stop, to take the bus back to Spain. Next — the plane from Barcelona. Back in Karlsruhe in illegal status, we began establishing a performative installation in a large hall of the museum. We hung our things like a load on strings, connected the wires, adjusted the software. The music appeared for a moment and immediately disappeared, forming a repetitive gap pretending to be the central, primary object of this whole event.

 

 

 

 

We have been in a state of permanent journey for six years. The amount of personal possessions has long been reduced to the required minimum, which could always be rapidly collected and taken as hand luggage on the plane. Now all these things are bounded and suspended on six strings as a weight providing the necessary tension for pulling the sound.

 

 

The things surrounding each of us form our material body, which, as a psychic, social, physical, is easily alienated from us, replaced, transferred and constantly moves away from us. This burden, with which we often tend to identify ourselves, does not really belong to us, but only serves to pull our personality, that metaphorically also produces a particular sound. Having once disassembled the world and ourselves up to the hilt, we are engaged in redefining and reassembling the new integrity, without losing the sense of suspense in the space of whistling draft.
