Fragments of Unspoken Thoughts, Exhibition view, Jakopic Gallery, Ljubljana 2012

The performance happens in a situation of absolute transparency and isolation in parallel. A sterile clean room bench from the scientific laboratory is the object in the performance. I step into this bench and stay there naked for 30 minutes. 8 neoprene gloves are leading into the clean room. The viewer is invited to “catch”. The performance, that references VALIE EXPORT's 'Tap and Touch Cinema' (1968-71), deals with contemporary ways of social contact paralleling the loss of physical closeness based on technical transformation.
