THE SILENT NEIGHBOR is a performative project which was staged in my apartment, located on the ground floor of the Gschwandnergasse 59, Vienna-Hernals. In THE SILENT NEIGHBOR, I take up topics that are negotiated within the private area. In the best case they should remain unseen, unheard and undone.

On three consecutive days, three hours a day, I stand on a pedestal, apparently hanged on a smiley-face balloon filled with helium. (As in a trompe-l’oeil painting, the pedestal disappears into the background).
At night, a video loop is shown throughout the duration of the night. One sees my face, slowly beginning to smile. Behind the facade of the blemish-less face foulness is revealed through making ”my” rotten teeth visible. The audience can see the performance and the video only through an open window to the street.
