Peter Callesen - Tower

Tower, 50 min. performance at the opening of Masculinities,
NIKOLAJ Copenhagen Contemporary Art Center, November 2001.

A performance inside an exhibition space, is it different from a performance outside? does the environment in which a performance is performed alter or restrict the effect of the overall piece? Inside, an object that is relatively large can appear huge, an object that is small can appear of average size. whereas if they were place outside in an open environment, they would both become a lot less daunting in size, and perhaps be dwarfed by their surroundings. think about this when assembling my work
