Simon Pfeffel - Performance "Türen Schließen 2"Türen schließen # IV
Academy of Fine Arts Karlsruhe. October 10, 2013; 19.00 o´clock. Photos: Pietro Pellini/ I produce an intimate space by this situation, which is open for the recicpient. So he is able to influence or even to destroy this situation by knocking off the metal rod. The circumstances are held by this tension in a permanent state of limbo. The performance lasts one hour.

vlcsnap-2013-10-28-09h28m11s211Stein1holenGewohnter Wille                                                                                                                    August 31, 2013/ The performance consists of three processes: 1. Searching for and getting suitable stones. We found two suitable stones on two  respective opposite mountains. We carried these in a social process with several actors and put them on a path. The stones were thereby converted from a natural into a cultivated condition. 2. A four-day sculptural shaping process: during this I prepare my body for the performance. This is an existentially part of my performance. 3. A two-hour performance, during which I stay in the horizontal position about 15 – 20 minutes. Small breaks occur when the body relaxes. The brakes are part of the performance. LiegenBayrischerWald

BiegenSkulptur_neuTüren Schließen III, May 2013
I turn a six meters square metal rod into a circle. In an almost one hour-long process I reduce the radius of this circle as far as the material itself, my strength, and the given circumstances admit. The plot ends when my sweaty palms lose grip on the metal rod. I fix the situation after the performance with tape. Thus the created object is merely the outcome of the action. PerformanceBiegen2sw
