«LE ICH DANS NICHT», 2019
In this performance, Sanvee transfigures the architecture of the Aargauer Kunsthaus through language and gesture. The imposing staircase of the museum’s foyer, flooded by beams of light, is staged by the artist as an enigmatic passageway between outsideand inside. Rémy Zaugg’s inscription on the façade «ICH DAS BILD ICH SEHE» (I THE PICTURE I SEE) is the starting point for Sanvee’s private dialogue with Zaugg, which she eventually projects into her surroundings. In this way, the artist poses one of her core questions: To what extent do we passively adapt to the outside world as dictated by societal codes, and where do we actively create them anew?
