Paper Planes

Snorri Karlsson & Melody Panosian
Paper Planes
Performance interventions
Video installation 

The video contains several partly-improvised performance interventions with a freestanding stone wall at the Gutshof next to Kunstverein Röderhof. The monolithic stone structures divide the surrounding landscape in two. There, in an undetermined space, an exploration begins each evening.

The performance interventions a continues throwing and altering of paper planes, a way to explore and determine the space. One A4 sheet of hand-made paper, copied and then folded into 20 paper planes. The paper planes are manipulated into the cracks and holes of the stone wall. Paper planes unfolded and painted on with motor oil found on site. Space blanket. The “measuring” of the space with a wooden sword and lastly paper planes continue being thrown through the landscape.

The video installation was displayed on two blocks of cardboard boxes, creating a gap, the gap visible as thin projection on wall behind cardboard boxes. Exhibited in my residency studio space on the 30th anniversary of Kunstverein Röderhof Harz/Germany.
