A white room is exhibited which appears raw and undone. The Performance occurs behind the glas that covers the entrances to the room of action. A person is continually scraping and carving the dirt off the floor. A microcam is fixed to the scraping tool which transports the view of the spatula by tearing off the material and projecting it into the neighbor room. There is also a microphone which sends the sound from the ongoing working performance up front where it is energized. The noise of the symbolicly basic action that refers to the private
structure every social behavior of
being can be heard from far.
One has already recognized the strange
sound before even entering the gallery. Without the posiibility of
placing it in context the visitor is following the noise to the place
of action where he is invited for several hours to take the role of the
performer and participate in this room for scraping. The days after the
opening there has been a video - and soundloop that gave an impression
of the performance that was shown for the opening. The scraping room
has been a freeze and an installation for the rest of the exhibition.
