untitled (clown piece)

Clowns deform their bodies, they make practical jokes, cover and masquerade themselves. They interrupt the pleasing spectacle-system of circus and establish a different, slower presence of time and a pretended diverse relationship to the audience with whom they play their games: They misbehave, are obscene, mean, even violent - and everybody laughes.
untitled (clown piece) adopts the gesture of the clown to repeat in it what it excludes: Pennywise The Dancing Clown invites to dance and offers his body for entertainment and as a battle field.
