GOO GOO MAK
Doris Uhlich develops a performative installation for the MAK. The performer Ann Muller intervenes in the columned main hall with a selection of her modules from the performance Gootopia, which she performs, varies, remixes in loops in this museum version.
Slime is a biologically vital substance that triggers ambivalent reactions: revulsion and shudders, curiosity and desire to touch. Slime is not clearly solid or liquid, neither intrinsic nor alien, and sometimes both at the same time. In Gootopia slime is material and performer, it performs with, on, in and between bodies. Humans and slime touch each other, network, mix, form alliances. Body boundaries become fluid. The result is an ambivalent field between horror and fascination, empathy and disgust, which enables visitors to immerse themselves in the sculptural, scenic and installative quality of material processes.
