Performance: Michael Druks, Territory – Living Space

The video performance is based on the children’s game “territory.” “Maybe you know the children’s game with the pocketknives: draw a circle in the damp ground, segment it into halves, two players, each mark by a thrust of the knife is lengthened, and these lines represent the capturing of a piece of the opponent’s land, until one player has it all. The Israeli artist Michael Druks will perform the piece for us, we will record it with a video camera and produce a video work.” (from the pamphlet announcement). Older video works by the artist are also shown.
