Looking for something there, yet it is there, 2014-2016

Performance in collaboration with Shervin Kianersi Haghighi.

 

Last year I started a series of performances in public spaces. Once a month I picked a place like a shop or restaurant and ask the owner about the most annoying work that she or he does on a daily basis. After having a discussion about the nature of this work, I offer to do that task for her or him on another day. I then try to execute it exactly the way they would after their instructions. 

This performance is a collaborative piece with the Iranian artist Shervin Kianersi Haghighi based in Ghent, Belgium. We both start on the same day and at the same hour and compare our experiences after one week. The performance is then documented as the result of our discussion.
