sissi/w139, amsterdam
amsterdam 2003
is a mountain-like "arena" in gallery w139 in amsterdam for italian artist sissi. the space serves as the backdrop for her marathon performance 'the walk' and has initiated a series of dramaturgic concepts of gallery space invading in her work. the installation designs sissi's choreography and turns it into a geometric problem. the movement is pre-set with architectural means: the looped performance with fast movement on the ramps and slow climbing on the stairs that form mountain-like configuration. it is staging sissi’s experience of a gallery-like space within different dramaturgic environments: from the social gallery space to a transformative corridor, before reaching the intimate, smooth, white, vertically climbing landscape.
