A performance of motion in large proportions


Michele Di Menna sets a stage for elaborate situations exploring the relationship between the human body and communication within the limits of architectural space. In her performance for “New Frankfurt Internationals” Di Menna plans to create an ephemeral investigation of a mysterious happening within the striking Frankfurt office tower Messe Turm.

The artist addressed, among other things, the absurd prestige battle over the height of high-rise buildings. To be more exact, she will address the architectural/speculative free space of repurposed rooftop structures such as antennae, pyramids, and air-conditioning units piled on top of one another, a space that can be seen as mediating between culture and an economy of purpose.

Michele di Menna (born 1980) studied at the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, Vancouver and the State Academy of Fine Arts Staedelschule, Frankfurt a. M. She lives and works in Berlin.
