Angie Hiesl – x-times people chair




“A visual-theatrical installation in and for public spaces. The performance locations are the façades of buildings on streets and city squares. Simple, white chairs made of steel are mounted on buildings at a height between three and seven meters. People between the ages of 60 and over 70 years old sit on the chairs high above the passers-by. They perform rehearsed, everyday activities in a reserved manner: they read the paper, slice bread, fold clothes… activities that have to do with their daily lives.

The regular ensemble is composed of performers from Cologne and Amsterdam. In addition to performances by ensemble members, local actors have also performed new versions of the piece, such as in Brazil, Columbia, and Perú.

x-times people chair will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2005.”

Felix Gonzalez-Torres

“Untitled” (Placebo) was a piece created by the artist after his partner died of AIDs-related complications; the title is a reflection of the incurability of the illness. Visitors are invited to take a piece of silver-wrapped candy from the constantly replenished expanse, initiating a continual process of depletion and regeneration.

“Kinetic artist Theo Jansen is renowned for building intricately complex animal-like automata. It takes him months to design and construct each member of the Strandbeest family out of recycled materials, using genetic algorithms to evolve each generation from the last.”
