Sunk in amnesia, the memory remains inaccessible. Most of the works made by hair of several thousand humans were created last year during my residency at Künstlerdorf Schöppingen. The core of the exhibition will be the social sculpture HA [A] RVEST – the heavy hairball was bailed in a performance act in collaboration with the Münsterland agricultiral contractor Möllenkotte. For the first time, the documentation of the performance from September 7th, 2019 will be screened.

The project was supported by stadtbesetzung. Stadtbesetzung is a project by Kultursekretariates Güthersloh, with the support of the Ministerium für Kultur und Wissenschaft NRW.
