Karen Tompkins, Judith Ramsauer, Birgit Ramsauer
I measure the room 3 of the gallery with fluorescent yellow and green tape in the way of millimeter paper measurement. So the walls, the floor, the ceiling are meassured.
I work since several years in public space of metropoles. 1997 till 1999 I realized the project ART : HOME — LESS in New York City, Moscow, Marseille and Berlin ( see catalog ART : HOME — LESS, published by ADG, Germany and A.R.T. Press, New York City and distributed by Ram Publishers and distributers, Los Angeles, 2000).
I am especially interested in the movement – and in the movment of people in a city (project ART : hOME — LESS, 1997-1999, JWD – Far in, far out, 2002). Since the metropole inhabitants move during one day from one heterotopian space to the other. There is a constant movement in a city.
The material tape is a very contemporary, present, non permanent material in metropoles. This material I use to mark the movement in former performances and installations and now in this performance with the two dancers.
