The inhabitation of fiction - episode twelve

click for video: Quicktime / Flash / = direct streaming for PC

Recap: "The Circle Camp is the beginning of the Martha Rubin-project about oracle Martha Rubin, who grew up in a circus and became a graceful dancer. Later her unique gift turned her into a marketplace attraction all over Europe - until she disappeared without a trace in 1913. Members of Martha Rubin Society live isolated from society and follow the oracle’s commands in city peripheries. They have built a camp around a circle of earth, stone and chalk and play her oracle-games non-stop for 38 hours."

Almost reaching the end of "The inhabitation of fiction" docu-soap, Sam Renseiw slowly gears down, voodling the remaining footage into the last remaining episodes. This documentary of The Circle Camp, still fresh, can be seen as a subjective trailer for the up-comming "staging" of Signa's Oracle Games in Cologne, Germany in September/October 2007.

Well, wayno, it might just be that you live in the US then....We might have a more casual approach to watching art here in Europe. But then again, all sort of goods get marketed with sexually biased images here too.

I must admit, that even though the episode got this tumb-nail as start-image, I did not intent to boost it by boobs.
It was just part of the performance, and somehow quite a central part of Signa's work approach " ...defying easy categorization as it intersects with a diverse spectrum of pop-cultural entertainment forms such as melodrama, music hall and whorehouse, mixing stereotypical cinematic clichés with bleak realism. The performance installations of SIGNA seek to explore structures of power and degradation, fate, identity and desire." see >
