Will you ever win?

Performance documentation

Video: 3:04 min., DVD, PAL, loop

Camera by Andreas Dammertz

The Artist (Nezaket Ekici) stands with the back to the viewer, in an created red colored room, with a wedding dress 8 meters long and 6 meter width. She tries to pull up desperately in Sisyphus work the long zipper in the back. Because the dress is closely sewed on purpose in the sleeve, shoulder and hip, it will be impossible to come up with the zipper. By using microphones, the noises of the zipper and breathing become audible. During 30 minutes, the viewer is torn whether he should help or not. In the end the Artist stops undone things with an open back and leaves the room with her long train.

Traci Kelly, collaboration with richard hancock

durational performance

photographs: oliver rudkin

in the fold between flesh, between hearts, and between breaths; two bodies are wrapped in a second skin, a skin that will change their economy and shed their dreams. iconographia is a text that flows and ebbs, that begs, borrows and steals, and ultimately exchanges power for dust.

iconographia is a 3 hour durational performance installation, during which traci kelly seals together the entwined bodies of richard hancock and a slaughtered pig with gold leaf. it is a shimmering meditation on ritual, spectacle, value, and loss.
