Wednesday 20.9. starting at 12:00
Sunday 24.9. till 12:00
Every day at 14:00 & 18:00 Contact the artist on the Island by walkie-talkies & follow the live streaming here!
Island is a performance where the artist lives 5 days on a self-build raft, ‘the island’ connected to the outside world through a sporadic radio broadcast. Through the radio phones, audience members can become accomplices in this courageous, symbolic action of displacement. The Island reflects contrary interpretations of individual’s alienation from the society, being it intentional (personal escape/retreat) or involuntary (forced exclusion).
In Mark’s case it remains impossible to access or exit the island. Communication is restricted and movement limited. The presence of the ‘human’ on the island, however, makes the island real. Nevertheless, the artist sends out on air optimistic messages and reveals his actual situation in subtle details.
Durational performance and installation in public space!
