"Playing The City" -Exhibition
Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt
"Elizabeth Wurst has worked for three years in performance and consistently
calls for direct participation in her interventions.
Frequently this is disconcerting for her audience, which often, unintentionally,
or even reluctantly, becomes protagonist.The artist investigates how far the
participating viewer will go, what boundaries he is prepared to overstep.
In her Sperrmüll Performances (actions in bulky household waste) she joins
these things, objectlike, inserting her body into the image, adjusting herself
to the objects, crawling into wardrobes or lying on discarded matresses.
She composes a still life and asks passersby to film her as she does so."
