- WITTSTOCK Herma Auguste, Image of München 9-Wetter, 2012, Galerie des Künstler, München.
8 hours/live performance
On 13 sequential days I locally work each day on a new durational performance the Image of München series.
With half of my body I sit on a socle in a corner. I wear a dark blue shirt and white tights. My left arm is based on my left knee. The right hand holds an open umbrella. The umbrella is white blue, in paint and model like the Bavarian sky. I look in the distance and stay long in this act. After some minutes I take the hair dryer, which is next to me, with the left hand, switch it on and hold it in front of my face. I keep this posture for some minutes, till I switch the hair dryer off again and lay it aside and based my left arm again on my left knee. After some minutes I put the hair dryer in my left hand again and repeat this action over and over again.
