is maybe


ca. 60 min

After the success of their first duet "What they are instead of" (2009) the second work by Angela Schubot and Jared Gradinger, "is maybe", is continuing their research of 'debordering' the body. The starting point is the search for an unconditional togetherness that fuels the chance to escape from one’s own identity. "is maybe" deals with the question which physical realities will come into being when individuals do not do anything about maintaining their "I", when they stop "I-ing" and instead implode during an exhausting action. Can I escape from my own "I" whilst looking for a home in someone else in an unconditional being-together? To answer these questions Schubot and Gradinger collaborate with the US-American street artist Mark Jenkins who is well known for his installations of body doubles in public space that look strikingly real.
