performative installation, mixed media, 2017
With PROCESSING\ZENTRALWERK bösediva took the PROCESSING-format, developed in India and Taiwan, home to Germany. The work was presented over three consecutive days during the opening of Zentralwerk, an new space for arts and culture in Dresden. Here, bösediva focussed on the reconstruction and renovation of the space itself, which served as a factory for bomb fuses in the Third Reich.
bösediva focussed on the materials used during the reconstruction period of several years, counteracted them with other materials clearly unfit for construction (like candy) and and in a performance totaling nine hours created an absurd landscape Is this building or is it a ritual? Is this drywall, electrical cable, cement or is it ornament and sculpture? bösediva created a space in which the worlds of the functional and the aesthetic collided.
