Sonnete number 25

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

I put a spell on you

Excused me, Sir!

Deformed Ethic of a Relationship 2.0 in collaboration with Oliver Blomeier


Deformed_Ethic_of_a_relationship_2_0_1 performed at the Galeria Civica, Trento in 2005  

Deformed Ethic of a relationship 2.0 is a work which consists of a live performance, installation and video. 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.

The performance took in two places at the same time. Oliver Blomeier performed at the Galeria Civica trento while Melati Suryodarmo performed in Denpasar, Bali. Both were connected through a live transmition of a telephone conversation. A video letter made in Bali was sent to Trento. The letter was opened and projected at the performance space at the Galeria Civica Trento. Accompanying this performance, an installation of beds caves and sounds are provided for the public.

Duration: 3 hours

Performed during the "Galeria del' amour" at the Galeria Civica, Trento in 2005
