Tied Feathers played with super market trolleys, a fake leg, endless amount of crisp packets and sweets as well as the human need to hold onto the things that we surround ourselves with. A fragmented space featured man made objects mixed with people – and people who got mixed up to what matters and how to connect. Is it a thing to care for or a human being to consume? The piece surfaced as a reaction to my first years in London where the focus on consumption of goods is much greater than in former East Germany. It remains a daily task to consciously differentiate what to care for since our ever growing consumer society turns people into things and goods into best friends.
