Glarus Scraping Ball, a performance and Installation with Video for the Klöntal Triennale 2014
Video realized in collaboration with Dominik Hodel, Regie & Concept by Christian Philipp Müller
The performative sculpture, Glarus Scraping Ball (2014), combines botany, geology, traditional myths, an old recipe for a Glarus tea, and locally-rooted art history. On walks, for example with botanical experts, visitors are transformed into actors: somewhere along the way between Bödmerenwald and Kunsthaus Glarus, they come across a permeable metal mesh ball and are invited to start it rolling with a little push, moving it on their way through a stretch of landscape marked with signs. Thus, in the search for ingredients to a Glarus tea recipe from the eighteenth century, it rolls through many layers of civilization, witnessing numerous things along the way: flowers, earth, stones, and roots.
