Feel Me. FELT ME.
I am wrapped in two kilos of white, merino wool.
You are invited to feel me and in the process, you felt a dress on my body.
Felt me was created during a three week residency at the European House of Art in Upper Bavaria, Freising, in July 2013.
The Art house is affectionately known as ‘Schafhof’, as it was formerly a sheep stable.
For Freifarben (Free colours) Eike Berg invited six artists to create a new work for the outdoor grounds of Schafhof. This exhibition featured three local artists; Beate Engl, Karl-Heinz Einberger, and Alexis Dworksky, and three resident artists; Csongor Szigeti, Alejandra Bueno de Santiago and myself.
The audience encountered ‘Felt Me’ during the exhibition opening.Over one hour later, my body and dress felted, I joined the celebrations.
