heir

(collaborative residency with Corinna D’Schoto
at Prenzlauer Studio in Berlin, Germany)






heir was a performance installation exploring public:private space, intimacy, & modes of story-telling. Our studio was a former storefront, which we also used as our bedroom, making our most private moments completely accessible. Using cardboard, we made symbols of a more traditionally domestic space -- combining elements from our own bedrooms back home. We made our own paper using paper we found (old posters on the street) or were given as tourists (maps, receipts). On this paper we made books, to record out experience in the storefront, our memories of our own bedrooms, stories of intimacy, stories of performance.

During the last 24 hours of the residency, we recorded ourselves deconstructing our books, & organising all other left over paper we had accrued (wrappers, receipts, brochures). These formed a web of connection points between the objects & parts of the room that were reflected in our stories. We attached to string our stories and other evidence of our having been in the space. The result was a non-linear story that one needed to contort their body to navigate, a story for the space, more than the visitor.
