This was supposed to be the future

Performance in the Volkspark Hasenheide, Berlin 2010

This project is about the expression of a mood and cathartic ritual.

“This Was Supposed To Be the Future” is a painting series on jute portraying six animals – a sheep, a monkey, a cavy, a rooster, a living pig and a dead one – which was carried and positioned in different areas inside a snowy park – the Volkspark Hasenheide in Berlin – during a performance in 2010.
We can picture Laura shifting in few hours as a cathartic ritual, from one of the highest expressions of artificial life to a natural open space where she placed her “animals”, as if it was the only spot in which they should actually live.
