BBB Johannes Deimling – What’s in my head (Was in meinem Kopf ist)

k-salon, D-Berlin 2009
Duration 32 minutes

“Description of action Similar like the structure of a collage I combine different small actions into one image: Throwing stepp by step red powder on my barefooted feets; putting wooden wings into a roll; slapping with my hands in my face; building up a tree from cardboard, dripping wax from candles (Y,O,U) on my breast, sticking papers in the shape of a “B” on the cardboard branches; hanging up a wooden puppet on the tree; creating a nest and putting small toy-tanks into it; tying a bread on my face, sticking forks into the breadhead, creaming my breadface, throwing red powder on it; spilling noodles letters over the audience; exploding the roll with the wooden wings. ”  More images from the artist’s website

Mladen Stilinović – Works with food

object  –  1978 -2009,
artist born in Belgrade. Lives in Zagreb
exhibition: 11’th International Istambul Biennial
