MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art
120-hour non-stop performance/installation by Falkner on the MAK Terrace Plateau
The artist will use her own body as well as a fabric of text, words, and red wool which will be stretched over the plateau
like a net so as to entirely envelop it. According to Hunting Rules. Yearning Creatures #2 is a sculpture rendered
through language, and Falkners installation is an instance of word become flesh.
Falkner will not sleep or eat for 120 hours, only have some water at night and keep marking her trail. Moreover, she will
be wired, wearing a contact microphone which transmits her sounds, her Yearning Creatures, to viewers/visitors/passers-by
and thus makes her confrontation with, her assault on the structure a shared experience.
The artists body, unscathed at first, will be somewhat battered after these five daysbut the concrete wall of
the MAK Terrace Plateau will also bear marks of the event.
