Insane Insights 2: Artists in Bed at Schlafzimmer Sandrock, Hamburg
The bed as place where the artistic magic happens. In this performance the bed is becoming living – and workspace. Themes of sickness, creative work, liminal states and boundaries between private and professional life are examined and merged. During an intimate meeting with the performers (Verena Buttmann and Rosanna Graf) the spectator is being portrayed from outside and in. After pulling a card from the Tarot, their portrait is taken and complemented by the key word from the card’s reading.
Insane Insights 3: Bordkiosk Surprise at MS Seute Deern, Hamburg
The board shop of MS Seute Deern is transformed into the office of Insane Insights.
Visitors get a one-on-one reading. After choosing the topic (love or money), one question is answered by the Tarot. The portrait of the visitor is then taken (using Paint), complimented with crucial elements from the pulled cards. Then a magical potion is given, which either boosts the libido or helps attracting money.
