Where I Stop is From Where I Travel (Stages of Stages) An audio-visual installation which questions the place of the 'sacred space', the traditional (theatre) stage versus the public space, the back stage, on stage, off stage and the visitor as a performer and perceiver. Every day, the installation - which fits into the possibilities of the room - changes a few times. It is a free and rather rough composition of the participating elements. This transformation, or language of the structure, is being documented in intervals by a fixed go-pro camera. Contents - - 5 ear protections (/so-called head phones), tape, chalk, glass and acrylic paint. - A collection of big wooden shapes/cut-outs of black multiplex wood, that imitate and go along with the shadows at different times of the day and the already existing architecture of a specific room. - Wooden black multiplex-copies of the existing black window bars. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ When we enter the stage, we enter a defined situation. Is it a ‘sacred space’? Where are the borders of this place? When and where does the 'sacred' start, and where does it end? Who am I in this situation? Am I the observer, the artist, the shaman, the performer? Am I none of them? Am I all? What is going on here? How do I relate to this place? What do I see, what do I hear? Is there a performance going on, a lecture, a sound to be listened at? To what extent do I take part, or not? What is my role? Where is my freedom of choice or participation? Where is the freedom to express myself? Am I taking some things for granted?
