the-holding

THE HOLDING, 2006, interactive installation at Kunstpavillon in Innsbruck. was part of the exhibition ‘entering a strange field’.

 

 

 

Barefoot I step through a kind of gate lock into the back part of the Kunstpavillon. I slip into a dark coat, its seam touching the ground, fasten it around my waist with a belt. Never before have I worn a kimono, but this belt reminds me of an obi. Yet at the same time it could also be an ammunition belt or a holster. The sleeves I tuck up with the help of a ribbon that is being fixated with Velcro fasteners – almost as if my blood pressure were being taken, this goes through my mind. Next I put on a piece of headgear that can be worn in different ways, and I decide to tie it at the back like a headscarf. My outfit is rounded off with a pair of sunglasses. I am anonymus.
