Sissi - W139 Gallery - Amsterdam [ projects, , play ]
Elastik has constructed a mountain-like "arena" for Italian artist Sissi in W139's main exhibition hall, which serves as the backdrop for her performance éThe Walk'.



The space serves as the backdrop for her marathon performance éThe Walk' and has initiated a series of dramaturgic concepts of gallery space invading in artist's work. The installation designs her choreography and turns it into a geometric problem. The movement is pre-set with architectural means: the looped performance with fast movement on the ramps and slow climbing on the stairs that form mountain-like configuration. It is staging Sissi's experience of a gallery-like space within different dramaturgic environments: from the social gallery space to a transformative corridor, before reaching the intimate, smooth, white, vertically climbing landscape.
