Stine Marie Jacobsen - Direct Approach
Finissage with performance/presentation of works by Stine Marie Jacobsen, Tanja Knaus, Chris Meighan and Adrian Schindler.
DIRECT APPROACH is a project in which Jacobsen arbitrarily approaches German citizens in a variety of public spaces, asking them to describe their own traumatic memory of a violent film scene.
Each citizen is then asked whether they would like to play the role of the victim, perpetrator or bystander in a re-enactment of the scene. They are asked to act alone in the scene their chosen character description. The camera people are instructed to reenact the original camera movement and the scene is tailored to fit the memory of the scene with the original scene.
