Both, the drawing and the film documentary complement each other in the installation, while I regard the performance basically as the actual work of art. In my performances I deal with the living, with the vulnerable, and finally with the ephemeral, therefore all documentation should be contradictive.
However, I find it important to let the drawings, resulting from the performance, have an effect in the aftermath. They preserve the intentions, the time and energy of the event. After the performance in Colmar, I leaned the chalk-board against the wall, emphasizing its imagery. That resulted in a gap in the circle on the floor, prompting the viewer to visually complement the form. It was as well important to me to present the film documentary of the performance during the exhibition.
