As part of the exhibition “Performance Process – New Swiss Performance Now”, the artist Raphael Hefti presents a new performance entitled “We are not one way trip to mars people”.
The piece consists of Raphael Hefti and a team of professional street markers, who together create an impressive floor painting by misusing a street marking machine.
“The action pivotal quest revolves around some fundamental visual codes we all share spanning from the tropes of painting to the street marking vocabulary and combine their means through the macroscopic dimension of labour. The result is a performance that liberates their scopes and reconfigures it by making use of specific gestural procedures and through an ephemeral temporality.” (info text).
