Eric Hattan & Julian Sartorius: CHAISES MUSICALES
Performance, Duration ca. 1 h
Eric Hattan loves chairs. His collection consists of more than 100 of them ranging from the designer chair to the common kitchen stool. This sculptor and installation artist finds his material in everyday things; his concern is not for new inventions, but for questioning through rethinking, for the minimal intervention that disturbs the equilibrium of existing things, thus bringing them into our field of perception. He shares this interest with the musician and sound explorer Julian Sartorius, who made a name for himself as a percussionist, among others, for Sophie Hunger and the electronics experimentalist Dimlite. Julian Sartorius maps out the world with his drumbeats; almost anything can serve as a resonator - grass, a badger skull, tree trunks - so what will happen if he is offered 100 chairs?
