Studies & Evocations

Performance - Kunsthalle Graz

"Studies & Evocations", Performance, Paul Divjak & Wolfgang Schlögl

“Oh beauty before us,
beauty behind us,
beauty to our right,
beauty to our left,
beauty above us,
beauty below us …
We are on the pollen path again …”

A performative requiem for a deceased bee colony: Paul Divjak & Wolfgang Schlögl, the two gentlemen bee pop-shamans are back and connecting with the magical world of the honey bee. – A piece in which Monsanto meets spirituality, and Beuys „Honigpumpe“ keeps on vibrating as a reference somewhere in the back of the audience´s minds.

Paul Divjak und Wolfgang Schlögl (aka I-Wolf) treten als Bienenbotschafter auf und laden zu einer multimedialen performativen Inszenierung. Mit ihrer Performance nehmen sie eine quasi rituelle Anrufung verstorbener Bienenvölker vor und vermessen den Raum zeremoniell. Dabei oszilliert ihre Haltung zwischen wissenschaftlich/technologischen Annäherungsmodellen und archaischen Methoden zur Herstellung gemeinschaftlicher (Grenz)-Erfahrungen.
