Video | Kunst: Evamaria Schaller - DOZE
Kunststation St. Peter, Cologne
curated by Anne Mager
Video works at Kunst-Station Sankt Peter are a tradition. Again and again, artists have expressed themselves with and in the medium in their exhibitions. Since 2000, the space also has a large screen at its disposal, so the presentation of videos becomes an extraordinary experience.
For spring, Anne Mager and Guido Schlimbach have picked a selection of works that will be presented to you during April and May 2018.
DOZE is a metaphorical journey into the landscape of the Atlas mountains, which are reflected through the anonymous female body. The emptiness of nature and the early hours in Morocco develop a new, a different life. Based on DOZE (developed during the QQ Residency between Cologne and Marrakech), Evamaria Schaller has developed a site-specific performance especially for Kunst-Station Sankt Peter: a resonance between body and architecture, the emptiness between concealment and exposure of the body, the oscillation between communication and action. An attempt to appropriate the church space by striding through it, to create an common space of action together with the audience which an uncertainty about the following steps. An experiment that aims to explore the performative appreciation of emptiness in a site-specific setting.
