Calling another a neighbour, whether far or close, is about the relationships we have with each other.
In the performance Neighbours a woman paces in the snow creating a circular path.
At some point she takes one or more groups of yellow sponge men from a shopping bag and places these at differing locations around this circle.
As the performance proceeds and more 'running men' are added, the distances (relationships) between these change the impression from that of isolated figures to preceiving these figures as a group. Of figures running together, or of figures running towards or against each other.
From a distance they form a circle reminscent of the circle of yellow stars one finds on the European flag.
This was an ideal location for the performance, Neighbours. The Turkish Culture Centre was in front across the street, next door was a Synagogue, in the circumfrance of about 400 metres were an Orthodox Church, a Mosque and a Catholic church. I chose this spot too, because I'd been working out here daily, laying out the snails in the area in front of the gallery where our exhibition was.
