Residency at Xiamen – China

 Chinese European Art Center, Xiamen China 2010

The project Brancusi’s Psychosis concerns exoticism, handcraft, neurotic behaviour and minimal art. Brancusi’s Psychosis Goes Exotic / Holy building boom is the result of three months of working in Xiamen (CEAC), China. Brancusi’s Psychosis is an amalgamation of several different projects, all of which are in dialogue with Brancusi’s Endless Column. The subtitle Holy building boom refers also to the unbridled building in China. Note also the references to the Bauhaus ballet of Oscar Schlemmer and the skycraper-dresses by American architects in 1916
