Artificial Walk #2

Performance Marie Julia Bollansée

Saturday, December 16, 1.30pm - 2.30pm

 

Chemnitz, city center

    A walk starting and finishing at Galerie Borssenanger


 

                                                                        The artist invites 8 members of the audience to participate

                                   in a slow walk around the city centre of Chemnitz. As a reward they will achieve a signed and numbered tarpaulin-edition for free.

The artificial walk is an ephmeral collaborative performance, an act of vigilance. A blue tarpaulin becomes the shell you step into the network with. The blue tarpaulin functions as an artificial extension to your body; you become a cyborg with a special task: When you walk, you copy a code for tenderness and compassion.
Artificial Walk #1 happened in Belgium, Ronse, on September 22 2017. : http://www.mariejuliabollansee.be/artificial-walk-1-liquid-tarpaulin-blue/

 

Now is Tarpaulin blue.

Tarpaulins are the universal emergency solution and the primary shelter for people around the globe. Their colour, which is named by the artist as ‘Tarpaulin blue’, she perceives as a sign of the time, as the now-blue. It occurs as infinite variations (like the hydrangea in my mother’s garden). There are as many Tarpaulin blue’s as there are situations where people use the (blue) tarpaulins in. Tarpaulin blue is alterable, it changes and fades by use and it’s pigmented by necessity in peoples lives.

 

ARTIFICIAL WALK #2 _ PROGRAM

* Eight volunteers can participate in this collaborative performance.

* Starting-point:

1.30PM at Galerie Borssenanger

* You put on a blue tarpaulin ‘shell’ and you take a place in the line.

You follow the artist, who walks ahead; she sets the rhythm. (You only leave the line for unavoidable casualties)

* End:

around 2.30 PM the line arrives back at the gallery.
You can keep the blue tarpaulin. The artist numbered (1 to 9) and signed it; You achieve a unique edition from this performance that you participated in.
