Do you know this modular house from 1968 by architect Jean Benjamin Maneval?
The Bulle 6 Coques is perfect.
It can be used as a bath, a theater, a sheepfold... Each time, the fixtures can give rise to a series of events, happening in the periphery.
After five years of using and damaging further the almost wrecked module i own, I gave to its formless inhabitant the name of Coquillette and started to perform this character.
At Galerie Birgit Ostermeier, Coquillette reenacts the construction process of the Berliner Fernsehturm (1965-69). In the bubble on top, my voice resonates like inside a bathroom. I call my mom on the phone, no answer. Then I start singing Long Song for Zelda, by Dashiell Hedayat (1971).
