Live performance intervention + time-lapse + photos
Duration: 3,5 hours
Human beings are forced to sit down in these kind of spaces, because the inter-architecture and our fixed, conditioned behavior tells us to. What if it would be the norm for us to have high standing furniture and spots to lean, lay, hang in, walk and bend? Would a person sit less? And what if it would be the norm for us to be in physical motion constantly?
During this residency at The Loft in Amsterdam, the artist is constantly disrupting the build-up sitting time in order to change the sitting behavior. The artist sat on every spot in The Loft that was possible, on repeat. The interior in The Loft points out towards the convention of sitting; the large meeting table, the lounge area, the lunch area and the windowsills. Ros created a continuous, physically active routing of sitting.
This work has been exhibited by Straight Through The Wall, NYC, USA in April 2020.
