Until the outbreak of the Corona pandemic, katharinajej became familiar with strangers on the street by remaining in silence with her counterpart in physical proximity for three minutes in Cologne, Germany and Yangon, Myanmar. Since then, a distance of 1.5 meters should be maintained from people in public spaces. Thus, katharinajej visits the forest to approach trees, bushes and grasses or spends even more time at home to make contact with lamp, wall and mirror.
On January 15, 2021 katharinajej walks along the streets of Cologne Kalk to become familiar with street sign, electric box and sidewalk. In this way she wants to experience what it means to be in physical connection with our urban architecture.
The performance took place in the context of "The World for Kalk" organized by the exhibition space Strizzi. The photographic documentation of the performance was exhibited at Strizzi, Trimbornstr. 7 in Cologne Kalk, and in the public space of Kalk in February and March 2021.
The project was supported by an artist grant within the framework of the NRW-Corona-Hilfen.
