LENA DITTE NISSEN
The performance group, disguised as an archaeological research delegation, stayed in a tent in front of the museum. A professional diver brought objects from the water of the Kaiserteich before the museum. The objects found in the semi-natural environment of the city lake - bottles, rubbish, plastic, a teddy bear - were brought to the research tent by the boat crew and then examined, classified, categorized and archived for an exhibition.
While interacting with the audience, all performers represented their roles as scientists - with specializations such as astro-mineralogy, futurism, utopianism, and chaos prevention. Through the museum context, the viewer and audience were in a constant conflict, as the research delegation had to classify. The first part of „Archeological studies“ functioned as the foundation for an installation.
