six days durational performance
with alexandra pirici
directed by Ute Meta-Bauer, SG
“Re-collection” is a performative exercise that draws on the practice of enactment/embodiment that Alexandra Pirici has been concerned with over time, from works that address public monuments to works in the gallery space.
Involving local performers, the action explores the possibility of a collectively assembled, small collection of such embodied memories of human and more-than-human presence on the planet.
The site-specific sound installation at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, consists of 87 Earphones, playing 87 individual screams in a loop.
Those screams are recordings of students, teachers and alumni that experienced discrimination as a consequence of structural violence within the context of universities. The sound sculpture fills the atrium with a constant siren-like noise. When crossing the installation, the sound experience undergoes a spatial shift, allowing the visitor to perceive each scream individually.
The installation aims to give space to those unheard voices and to a possible discourse about structures that reinforce given power relations.
FOR VIDEO ------------------------------>
is a sound-performance in a bath room in public space. The elevated stage around it enables the spectators to observe the performance from 360°. While washing my hands with soap for about 30 minutes, soundartist Jakob Schauer edits the sound of the soap to a subtile climax. Sound and performance interfere with each other. The floors surface gets more and more slippery, the movements become less and less controllable.
ph 5.0. is a reference to the hygiene regulations due to COVID-19. It plays with repetitive gestures, public control and the shift of private and public rituals in the context of a global pandemia, while exploring power relations between observing and being observed.
The performance was conducted in Selegie Arts Center in Singapore and its objective is to challenge the performers to maintain a state of meditation while the audience is invited to influence the meditation through dripping ink.
The whole process explores how body and mind are interconnected; and how it’s okay to embrace uncomfortableness while meditating.
The garment serves as a visualisation of the mindfulness process.
24 H GOLDEN MILE
Singapore consists of a hybrid, vibrant, constantly changing urban landscape.
No permanence guaranteed. My one-hour-video installation aims to create a digital sculpture of the Golden Mile Tower.
Since the 24-storey building is very
likely to be torn down soon, replaced by a new, for the government more pro-
fitable property, this work approaches its various aspects.
floor for one hour for 24 hours, it gives one possible insight in the parallel
dynamics and daily crossovers of this unique space.
The work got installed in different ways at Selegie Arts Center, Singapore and at Seestadt, Vienna.
JUST WATCH IT
A interactive performance and group project by students from the digital art departement for the Biennale di architettura in Venice, 2014.
With the performance titled OnLine, the group
attempts to address the fundamental importance
of digital media for our sense of living in a social
world by means of audio-visual information, which is gained through the presence of its visitors only.
While a face recognition algorithm exemplifies
the self-similarity of meta-communities, its code
is being played back to the audience within the
ultrasonic wave spectrum.

When standing in front of the projection, you perceive the synchronized sound through the headphones next to it. As soon as you put the headphones on, the screaming is no longer audible but visual only.
