Performance / Wall Writing, 2020
In The Message the artist carefully put on personal protective equipment (PPE).
She then turned to the wall behind her, which was covered in blackboard foil, and wrote with a chalk: “STAY HOME SAVE LIVES”.
After a short pause, she turned to the wall again and crossed out the words.
The performance ended with her taking off the PPE, one layer at a time.
The Message critically examined the Swiss response to the pandemic. Its trace was visible in the vitrine on Müllerstrasse 71, Zurich, between November 15 and December 13, 2020.
It was part of the Bonus Track exhibition series by Kunsthaus Aussersihl.
