Boy With Hang, Charlotte Ruppert & Johanna Maj Schmidt, Villa Esche, 2021
BOY WITH HANG
Performer: Andre Schmidt
A young man in a ghillie suit, a camouflage suit used by the military, is moving across the Villa Esche and the surrounding garden. Equipped with a folding stool, he is settling in different places within the exhibition. The extent to which his camouflage is working depends on the locations he choses. While sitting, he is playing the hang, a UFO-shaped percussion instrument, which was invented in 2000 and that emanates soothing sounds.
