Blush and Fall.
…about falling around, falling into, falling prey to, falling down and missing the ground. about atterrissage, passement, franchissement, laché and equilibre.
“the terror of falling is not the earth rushing up, smiling and effusive, to embrace you. Nor it is the fear of impact. It is this sense of betrayal, as you arch earthwards like a shooting star, looking down to see that there’s no one there waiting to catch you.”
Performance: Anke Kalk and Marie-Jolin Köster. Camera: Anna Moraes. Sound: Marie-Jolin Köster (the terror of falling.mp3)
@ CARGOTOPIA festival Porto, Portugal, 2010
Sunday Morning Dancing
Solo Show | Galerie Metro | Berlin 2009 | Installation view
“The title of the exhibition „Sunday Morning Dancing“ refers to one of the numerous walks at dawn after dancing the whole night through. In her works Anke Kalk often tells stories of every day life in a romantic and poetic way which at the end turn out to be not quite as harmless and based on aestheticism as they seemed at first sight. The artist is permanently occupied with form and transformation of things and their metaphors and ambiguities: Clothes, fashion, the vesture as social code and sign of its time and the constant recurrence of forms is one of the main topics in her work….for more information see Press Release

Kitsume was a project of Suska Gödner and me. We created a carpet from slides, videos, songs, sounds, costumes and light to perform on. We saw each other as a performance – band with a set of 3 minute songs looking like a mix of animals and humans constantly changing between characters and scenes. Often we invitated artists and musicians to collaborate. Performances were for instance @ Museo de San Juan | Puerto Rico USA, BüroFriedrich | Berlin, KW | Berlin, Mt. Warning | Berlin and many other places within Europe during our tours.
