June 2011
Duration 18 hours
Photography: Tina Lange, Lisa Stertz and Dolanbay

This was my first performance at my performance studio, Grüntaler 9, in Wedding Berlin. The 18 hour long piece was spread over 3 days; 9th, 10th and 11th June 2011 between 4:00 pm and 10:00 pm. At the center of the performance was the task of making wall drawings in charcoal and chalk in an attempt to trace movement and record the passage of time. The transformation of the space and the body as a result of making the drawing was the real time experience of the piece.
I was using my body in ways that I don’t conventionally, contorting and twisting, stretching and squatting.
