fish + braids = fishwithbraids

fish + braids = fishwithbraids
the experience of art thrives at the top of the bell curve in a place of speculation (and not consensus), hypotheses (and not conclusions) and belief (not knowledge).
To stay at the top of the bell curve, as Buergel and Noack might say,
the best art must make us not understand,
which corresponds to a state of sustained curiosity that provokes us to change something about ourselves in an effort to understand.

Eve painting the town

a performance art installation in various locations around NYC.
Curated by Eva Moll (Germany)
participating artists: Eva Moll "Eve", Uta Brauser "foliage from paradise" and body art, Christoph Von Loew, video and photography

Eva Moll's iconic character Eve, who after years of Eve and the Big Apple, Eve and the garden of paradise, evolved to Eve committing suicide.
The painting comes alive with this performance piece, the process of embodying the painting through body art, costumes and props, involving the attending public in each step and location.
Eva Moll is using the public space as her canvas, the performance piece as her paint.
Her own appearance accompanied by the green foliage of paradise (talking leaves, since Uta Brauser will never shut up) are leaving splashes of color in the memories of who had the opportunity to witness.
