In this performance, Sanvee transfigures the architecture of the Aargauer Kunsthaus* through language and gesture. The imposing staircase of the museum’s foyer is staged by the artist as an enigmatic passageway between outside and inside. Rémy Zaugg’s inscription on the facade « ICH DAS BILD ICH SEHE » ( I THE PICTURE I SEE) is the starting point for Sanvee’s private dialogue with Zaugg, which she eventually projects into her surroundings. In this way, the artist poses one of her core questions: To what extent do we passively adapt to the outside world as dictated by societal codes, and where do we actively create them anew?
