The dog barked at the back yard, while the eagle flew after the dark. And I....

When the box was opened, the fog disappeared. Alienation of the stone

Excused me, Sir!

Deformed Ethic of a Relationship 1.0 in collaboration with Oliver Blomeier


Deformed_Ethic_of_a_relationship_1_0_1performed at the "Turmgalerie", Helmstedt, 2006  

Deformed Ethic of a relationship 1.0 is a live performance with a video work. Blomeier and Suryodarmo expose contradictions that may appear in a relationship, and project the deformation process of a relationship. They presume that the process of deformation has begun as soon as an unsynchronized incitement within the relationship becomes visible.

This is the continuation of the Deformed Ethic of a Relationship 2.0, where the the artists performed on the bed in a gallery space. The video work was projected on the curtain. Melati wrote her text all over the bed and on Blomeier's body. At the end of the performance, Blomeier turned the electric jigsaw on.

Duration: 30 minutes
