Alongside project at Queen’s University Belfast, Northern Ireland
1 red cord
1 role of chewing gum
1 red camping bottle filled with water
I stretch nylon cord through the room. I slide along the cord and deform my face. Through the tension of the cord and my teeth I cause some sounds. I begin to eat a roll of chewing gum with the nylon cord in my mouth. Loud smacking sounds appear. I slowly let the cord with pieces of gum slide out of my mouth. The chewing gum now stretches itself until it reaches the ground.
I place the duvet in the middle of the room and slide under it. While slightly moving under it little sounds of a tuner underline my movements.
Alongside is a development from a workshop with Jürgen Fritz and the Art of Encounter with Black Market International and Bbeyond. Belfast-based performance artists and international guests work alongside each other in a campus-wide performance at Queen’s University.
