Abstract

The performative intervention as a site-specific happening takes place at a certain time for a special opportunity and awards a common place importance through appropriated, cultural specifically corresponding constellations of core symbols. It scrabbles for forgotten narratives of the everyday life. “myFunerals #4 : deposit mourning walk“ reflects the aspect of memory within spaces. The intervention reviews the concept of „Contact Zones“ as social areas, in which heterogeneous social and cultural positions get in touch.

The Intervention starts with the initiation and preparation for the ritual. The performer leaves with the required equipment. He moves to the cementery space.

Abstract

L’intervento perfomativo, essendo un happening site-specific, che si svolge in un determinato momento e per un’occasione specifica; vuole assegnare un significato ad uno spazio comune attraverso costellazioni di simboli.

La performance (di Juerg Luedi) scava alla ricerca di narrazioni dimenticate della vita quotidiana.

„myFunerals #4 : deposit mourning walk“ riflette gli aspetti della memoria di un luogo o di uno spazio e rivede il concetto „Contact Zones“ come spazio sociale, nel quale posizioni sociali e culturali diverse tra di loro entrano in contatto e coesistono.

L’intervento comincia con l’iniziazione e la preparazione per il rituale.

L’artista lascia il suo punto di partenza e si incammina verso il cimitero con l’equipaggiamento necessario.

La sua attenzione è ora rivolta verso gli oggetti quotidiani che si trovano nei dintorni. Oggetti dimenticati, divenuti inutili, buttati via, vengono da lui raccolti. Per loro comincia ora un processo di lutto.

L’istallazione degli artefatti trasforma il non-luogo in un paesaggio di ricordi . Tutto ciò avviene in uno spazio pubblico.
