in 2017 i was invited to perform Christian Falsnaes' FEED:
"a situation centered around rituals of submission and construction of power and authority; focused on exposure, expression of the self and staged behaviours" according to curator Anna Smolak.
Any figure of proclaimed authority, especially played out, affects me personally, causing rather rejection than unquestionable respect. So in this project I was eager to get confronted and to confront. My task was to be this authority for the visitors entering the installation space. I had to accurately balance between direct manipulation and inaction, where the latest sometimes led to even bigger obedience of the people. On a top of all the curiosities discovered in this performance, I realized that human animals tend to forget that they actually have a choice.
