Description of project
During August 21 until Septemer 5, 2021 three German artists Yuka Oyama, Marten Schech and Stephanie Lüning worked together on a site-specific and work-in-progress public installation next to the Eisenbahnbrücke in the city of Meißen (Sachsony), Germany. The sequence of this artwork was developed together with Maren Marzilger and Nina Fischäss (curators) at Kunstverein Meissen. In the public space next to the Eisenbahnbrücke Oyama painted a board game graphic that resembled a floor plan of her artwork “SurivaBall Home Suits”(fig.1). As the first public intervention, Oyama conducted a performance that invited random audience members (passersby) to engage with a performative game, where they publicly announced their personal stories about their home space, both emotional and material qualities. Martin Schech (fig.2), an architect/artist built a tiny house, “Rag House” on the ground plan painted by Oyama, based on the Sachsony’s traditional home-building craft knowledge and skills. Stephanie Lünning (fig.3) at the end washed Martin Schech’s “Rag House” with colourful soap bubbles and created her large-scaled three-dimensional home painting.
