GOOD QUESTION

Innocence does not find near so much protection as guilt.

 

 

stefan replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 08:46

WHAT IS YOUR PLACE OF PROTECTION?

If more people asked that question the world would be much better off....

GALLERY WEEKEND BERLIN:

What is your place of protection?

 

 

Andrea12 replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 18:11

MY PLACE OF PROTECTION...

...is everywhere I can let my self go.

 

 

Alice replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 11:03

DO YOU THINK THIS WOULD BE DIFFERENT IF YOU WERE A MAN?

I can't help but feel that you'll be being exploited by the male gaze when lying there. How do you think this would be different if you were a man? Tilda Swinton also did

something like this in NYC, and it felt so rat-in-a-cagey, I think because she has to look pretty on camera all the time.

FINAL COUNTDOWN.....

FOR DIGITAL AUTISM!

 

 

Andrea12 replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 18:16

DIGITAL AUTISM

I think using media (digital or not) is even enhancing your communication - but not everyone uses these possibilities. Maybe the autism lies in our way of perception, in

terms of consuming media not producing anything.

EINMALIG

...wie intensiv und hyperkreativ Du Deine Kreativität lebst!

 

 

Reinhard replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 17:55

PLACE OF PROTECTION

My place of protection is at home, eg the sofa in my living room, or the Ikea bed in my bedroom, in the arms of my sweetheart.

 

 

Christoph replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 18:01

ILLUSION

Protection is Illusion

My place of protection is the Uterus!

ALICE....

I know Tildaęs performance - she started it already in the 70ies I think - called THE MAYBE but itęs a different story - I think being exposed as a woman is obvioulsy more

controversal than as a man - but itęs also fragile and powerful - If you face your fear - thatęs the only way to overcome it....

 

 

Hermann replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 18:07

GOOD LUCK

Good luck

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 18:07

CHRISTOPH...

I like your imagery of ILLUSION! I once wrote a poem called: Will the last illusion before disillusion be love?

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 18:09

REINHARD...

I have not had a home for a very long time in my life - only temporary island of shelter so I feel happy for someone like you whoęs happy and homey ;-*

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 18:13

If bad luck is asleep you must not awaken it - peace never sleeps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ANDREA....

WoW! Thatęs a new one - I heard so many answers like FREE BY MYSELF IN SOLITUDE so letting go...is the new flow! GO!

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 18:16

I WISH...

I could share all the private answers I am getting with you but of course I wonęt Just a little something from someone really special .... the smile of a child! I am especially

drawn to this becuase I just had a rather essentiel experience... which I might tell you a little later - itęs something you pnder over when the light is fading.....

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 18:18

DIGITAL AUTISM TOOK OVER

Jovanny this is for you...thank you! Now my time in bed is better ;-*

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 18:20

I THINK ABOUT THIS ONE

 

 

Andrea12 replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 18:24

ME TOO

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 18:31

ANDREA...

MEDIA IS CURSE AND BLESSING - SUCH AS THE BED...even though you should be totally protected u feel lonely at the same time - I would even go so far to say -

the ultimate place of in between and the opposite is the incubator where the baby comes in new born and the only chance to survie is in an artifical state - but whatęs

missing is the love in terms of touching feeling and having a human sense of body near by....

 

 

Helene replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 18:31

MY..

..places of protection when I was a child were caves I built for myself from chairs and blankets. Although there were people in the room, sitting in the cave gave me a

very special feeling of protection. Today, I have this feeling when I am inside a warm flat and the weather outside is raging but cannot harm me.

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 18:35

HELENE...

I always built houses made of garden chairs for my teddy bears ( GLÜCKSBÄRCHIS) and dolls and my DACHSHUND (DACKEL) called Santa Claus - caves are cool! U

know what - my favorite game was playing ROBIN HOOD and we were outside all day and our only shelter was rocks and trees....U R A TRUE ROCK STAR HELENE

AND MY SISTER IN CRIME!

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 18:38

ANGEL...

One of the answers I got was an angel - Rilke said every angel is terrible! Thatęs why I even bother with wings....

 

 

Holger replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 18:46

THINKING & BELIVING IS PROTECTION

Revelation 7:15 Therefore they are before the throne of God and serve him Day and Night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will shelter them with his

presence.

Why is Protection so importent for u

 

 

I.f replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 18:53

U

Is the bed your Place of Protection ????

HOLGER

http://www.art-protector.com/digital-poetry/poem-clip-40-believe/ This oneęs for uuuuuu Although I am not religious I am spiritual - I feel thereęs an energy thatęs higher

than anyone can ever imagine - thatęs why I went to India to go and see beyond - now I sound like a cliché Hippie but thatęs the truth - now I think of it again just because

you reminded me of it - Shanti shanti!

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 18:55

SUSANNE

WHY LOVE?

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 19:03

BED AS PLACE OF PROTECTION?

Well, the bed was among the many answers I got - no matter from which country nor religion - people are drawn to this last BASTILLION of shelter which is left - imagine

in the old days one would not be able to see another familys bedroom....now I sound like a granny - holy shit like bla bla all has been more priveé and protected but in a

way it was - now Media and total transparency made us so addicted to technology that we kind of kiss our smart phones good night rather than our beloved ones....a nice

metaphor for digital autism anyway - for me personally: MY bed is love and hate - I long for it but when I am in it I canęt relax - itęs like Fassbinder said: SCHLAFEN

KANN ICH WENN ICH TOT BIN!

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 19:05

SCHLAF / SLEEP

MY DREAMS KEEP ME FROM SLEEP!

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 19:09

I LIKE THIS ONE!

Why are you doing this? If only I knew ...

 

 

Jean replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 19:09

PROTECTON

IT was a lover and his lass, With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino, That o'er the green corn-field did pass, In the spring time, the only pretty ring time, When birds do

sing, hey ding a ding, ding; Sweet lovers love the spring. Between the acres of the rye, With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino, These pretty country folks would lie, In

the spring time, the only pretty ring time, When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding; Sweet lovers love the spring. This carol they began that hour, With a hey, and a ho,

and a hey nonino, How that life was but a flower In the spring time, the only pretty ring time, When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding; Sweet lovers love the spring. And,

therefore, take the present time With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino, For love is crown`d with the prime In the spring time, the only pretty ring time, When birds do

sing, hey ding a ding, ding; Sweet lovers love the spring.

JEAN THE POET

Finally some poetry!!!!

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 19:17

FOR U...

Can foreign eyes sate unconditionally one’s own desire? Only the lonely heart Knows love But also pain Togetherness Though poles apart In peace not war That’s what I

call A mutual vision Filled with dreams

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 19:27

JOHN LENNON

I think what John Lennon said with IMAGINE PEACE could be translated into today with the following: IMAGINE POETRY When John and Yoko stayed in in bed for their

BED INS this was a different time and place - so they were singing and smoking and just peacefully lying in their comfort zone which said soooo much at the time -

decades later Tracey Emin turned her bed into a public sex space - now at the beginning of this century where everything already has been revealed - isnęt the only

chance not to survive in what I call digital autism if we just concentrate on the essence of things? Reflexion in and over beds this it!

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 19:29

MORE POETRY!

I slowely feel like a drink ...

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 19:34

TINA

I never really knwe where I was heading either ... I guess a lot of moral and also protection I got through my family - without them and their unconditional love I could

have never gone my way ...But what does unconditional love mean?

Michaels replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 19:38

YES, A BED, THE ENDURING WOMB

But i'm reminded of a simple towel as used in 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy'. That may suffice, that and a temperate climate and 'the essentials' Or more

abstractly, gently flowing thought. It's a good question to ask on your travels, I think. And yes, you do have my male gaze ;-)

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 19:39

WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?

Well, I ask myself sooooo many questions - donęt you feel itęs easier to answer just when u have no one to answer? left alone with your thoughts....

 

 

Michaels replied on Fri, 04/26/2013 - 13:07

yes, sure. Goethe says one can be instructed in society, one is inspired only in solitude. I ccannd a page of yours last night, you say you havent been alone for 1o

years... that can't be wholly good..

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 19:42

MICHAEL

Now u got me onto something - when did you read Hitchhiker through the galaxy? I think itęs not only about what you read but also when - I mean the time in your life ....

 

 

Michaels replied on Fri, 04/26/2013 - 13:09

NOT SURE WHAT YOU GOT ONTO,

Not sure what you got onto, but to answer you: probably in late teens, exploring what I liked. Did you read it?

 

 

I.f replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 19:44

PLACE OF PROTECTION

Dear Mia, My unforgettable Place of Protection was the warm "Bauchfell" of CARLOTTA, Our Irish wolfhound Girl. And i Wonder how you Could Feel protected during

Night in Kassel ... Without CARLOTTA. Love Anna

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 19:49

MY TRAVELS...

I canęt really remember when the journey started but it must be after my german ABITUR - I packed my gear and was off ... and away ... nowhere to go nowhere to

stay...I traveld to Australia first - back packing first just like in Alex garlandęs book THE BEACH - what a trip! We all wanted to stay there didnęt we? Anyway their are

comments waiting but sometimes you get carried away with thoughts as well itęs just like you are trying to create and than you stumble into one idea after the other (

problem is to finish it ) so what I was thinking of was one episode where I had a tent in thailand for free because I did the dishes every morning and night at the common

beach house and there was this lady and we never talked but only comminucated through our eyes ... this was incredible - she said soooo much to me just with one look!

SAY MORE WITH LESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS WORDS!

AHHH sister in crime - if I could I would post you the picture of Santa Claus my Dachshund! HE was the cleverest dog u can imagine - this is my only disagree with

HM..

I guess it depends what you mean with autism ? Again it can be both - inner reflexion and silent solitude but also the worst case chaos scenario just like the total

apocalypse of isolation and pain....especially when you donęt have anyone who understands u!

AMSTERDAM

A good spot for the bed of peace - I mean the original one which is from this prison I was looked in the isolation cell - sometimnes you need to show exactly the opposite

of what you want to say - like travelling to the moon and back...The bed needs to take on a journey just like an angel without wings and needs to be placed just where

peace is neededd - could be right in the middle of s Spiesser-Wohnung wo der Mann seine Frau schlägt genauso wie am Gazastreifen oder an einem der Orte am

Grenzübergang Berlin/Potsdam wo Menschen beim Mauerüberqueren erschossen warden...PEACE NEVER SLEEPS!

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 20:07

I have a poem for u: Sleeping seems like dying One lover is forced To separate the other And our dreams are crying

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Thu, 04/25/2013 - 20:09

WE ARE ALL EQUAL

Loud music lost love The bullshit of the world Will cut us off I know it because slow and soft I feel the earth is moving No more ground beneath our feet Our life is off and

on as if Paralyzed by ecstasy and speed Is there a cure for madness In our minor minds Your silhouette in the mirror Makes my eyes go blind Are you there with me? Is

your head lying next to mine? One double room two single beds Our words have lost their rhyme

REFLEXION

light fades thoughts appear... Whatęs interesting that the Emails I am getting which are not public seem to have some sort of soul, like as though the desire I feel - which

is the reason for everything I do - must be some kind of sense of my generation or what human beings have in common anyway just like Kantęs categorical Imperative so

how can we transform the feeling of ultimate shelter and protection where nothing can harm u into todayęs society ?

HOW MANY KIDS DO YOU HAVE? I

How many kids do you have? I think ultimate love we can only feel when we had this experience of actually looking into the eyes of someone how is made of our flesh

and blood - i mean i can only guess - i donęt have kids yet - only art babies how i call my artworks because I put so much HEARTBLOOD into them ( in fact in reality I

used a lot of blood for my installations ) so giving birth must be mind blowing and perhaps the most creative thing there is in the world...

 

 

Florian replied on Fri, 04/26/2013 - 10:55

MY PLACE OF PROTECTION

I am always working on expanding my place of protection. Therefore I am confronting myself with circumstances that give me the feeling of insecurity until they are losing

their threatening effect on me. Wouldn't it be nice to feel protected no matter where you are?

LIFEęS A CHALLENGE RIGHT? IN

Lifeęs a challenge right? In a way your concept summerizes my way of working pretty well - if you donęt go beyond you ll never know what to find...if you donęt cut loose

there wonęt be joy - if we donęt die there wonęt be eternity...A Guru in India laughed at me when I asked him the protection question - he said the people in Europe are so

fearful that they even fear the fear - Angst vor Angst - thatęs why they limit ate themselves and keep too much essentiel time worrying instead of creating - thatęs when I

started putting even the downsides of life into something more powerful than anything: REFLEXION of protection....so whatęs your ultimate vision in life after all?

 

 

Florian replied on Fri, 04/26/2013 - 13:54

FEAR

I agree. Fear is good as long as we use it as an engine to transform it to something we create. This will also help to lose the fear of fear - because we know it is only fear

and we can overcome it by our own action. My ultimate vision in life? I think it is to see the beauty in life and to be in harmony with my feelings, my thoughts and my

actions.

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Fri, 04/26/2013 - 14:02

THATęS BEAUTIFUL - BUT ITęS

thatęs beautiful - but itęs hard to bring together - if everything is peaceful I usually create chaos or a scenario so I need to start all over again - itęs a kind of everlasting

engine....the power of deconstruction! Like a child whoęs happy to smash the BAUKLÖTZE that he or she piled up...

 

 

Florian replied on Fri, 04/26/2013 - 14:13

YES, A VERY GOOD EXAMPLE WITH

Yes, a very good example with the Bauklötze! What I mean is not a peaceful life without worries - I think this would be very boring after a time. I mean to be in harmony

with oneself: also embracing the bad feelings, the fear, the unexpected things and challenges in life. Like to be ones own observer looking down on ourselves and smiling

while we watch ourselves playing on earth :)

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Fri, 04/26/2013 - 14:39

CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD

Reminds me of that film I love so much - I think after all I just wanna be a child again anyway - back in the days one was innocent pure without any fear - so no protection

was needed anyway!

POEM OF THE DAY

My last thought last night before my head touched the pillow was: How on earth did Marina Abramovic last during her MOMA show 3 month motionless on a chair??? In

ARTIST IS PRESENT you get the dash of an idea but how did she really feel during performing? My first thought this morning on the way to the gallery was: I only have

three days left performing DIGITAL AUTISM while actually doing what the rest of the modern world is doing permanently every day anyway: Writing SMS and Emails!

What does that tell us?

Hi, sorry had to answer the other chat....GOETHE is like the universe when it comes to words - the scene in Faust Forest/cave he says: so taumel ich von Begierde zu

But coming back to your answer - do you mean you feel protected when you were a teenager and free and able to do what you want? Why do you think it changes when

we grow up?

 

 

Michaels replied on Fri, 04/26/2013 - 13:57

NO, I DIDN'T, AND I WASN'T.

No, I didn't, and I wasn't. The towel in the book is protective. People 'grow up' in different ways. We are all safe until we are not.

For me the most controversial place of protection is the incubator box - protected and isolated at the same time - the Utopia of a place just like the womb ... thatęs on my

mind right now and I just performed it in Austria a few days ago - thatęs why itęs such a clash of feeling for me right now: in Innsbruck I was so isolated - almost naked

inside a transparent object where everybody could touch me - and now yet on the contrary but strangely enough it just feels the same - I am in stuck in this prison bed

almost like under a KÄSEGLOCKE where there seems to be an invisible shield around me so people are just next to me but like invisble strangers who can only *touch*

me via internet - through the multimedia milky way of cyberspace....

Werk nicht zu sedieren, wenn weltweit Friedensglocken läuten: "Holder Friede, Sü.e Eintracht, Weilet, weilet Freundlich über dieser Stadt! Möge nie der Tag erscheinen,

Wo des rauhen Krieges Horden Dieses stille Tal durchtoben, Wo der Himmel, Den des Abends sanfte Röte Lieblich malt, Von der Dörfer, von der Städte Wildem Brande

PEGASUS

Thank you so much for this impact of beauty! Dann antworte ich eben auf deutsch: Schiller hat für mich eine grosse Relevanz - aber nicht nur wegen seines Frieden

Gedichtes sondern gleichermassen für Pazifismus stehend die Zeilen zu seinem beflügeltem Friedenspferd: Pegasus im Joche Auf einen Pferdemarkt - vielleicht zu

Haymarket, Wo andre Dinge noch in Ware sich verwandeln, Bracht einst ein hungriger Poet Der Musen Roß, es zu verhandeln. Hell wieherte der Hippogryph Und

bäumte sich in prächtiger Parade; Erstaunt blieb jeder stehn und rief: »Das edle, königliche Tier! Nur schade, Daß seinen schlanken Wuchs ein häßlich Flügelpaar

Entstellt! Den schönsten Postzug würd es zieren. Die Rasse, sagen sie, sei rar, Doch wer wird durch die Luft kutschieren? Und keiner will sein Geld verlieren.« Ein

Pachter endlich faßte Mut. »Die Flügel zwar«, spricht er, »die schaffen keinen Nutzen, Doch die kann man ja binden oder stutzen, Dann ist das Pferd zum Ziehen immer

gut. Ein zwanzig Pfund, die will ich wohl dran wagen.« Der Täuscher, hochvergnügt, die Ware loszuschlagen, Schlägt hurtig ein. »Ein Mann, ein Wort!« Und Hans trabt

frisch mit seiner Beute fort. Das edle Tier wird eingespannt. Doch fühlt es kaum die ungewohnte Bürde, So rennt es fort mit wilder Flugbegierde Und wirft, von edelm

Grimm entbrannt, Den Karren um an eines Abgrunds Rand. »Schon gut«, denkt Hans. »Allein darf ich dem tollen Tiere Kein Fuhrwerk mehr vertraun. Erfahrung macht

schon klug. Doch morgen fahr ich Passagiere, Da stell ich es als Vorspann in den Zug. Die muntre Krabbe soll zwei Pferde mir ersparen, Der Koller gibt sich mit den

Jahren.« Der Anfang ging ganz gut. Das leichtbeschwingte Pferd Belebt der Klepper Schritt, und pfeilschnell fliegt der Wagen. Doch was geschieht? Den Blick den

Wolken zugekehrt, Und ungewohnt, den Grund mit festem Huf zu schlagen, Verläßt es bald der Räder sichre Spur, Und treu der stärkeren Natur, Durchrennt es Sumpf

und Moor, geackert Feld und Hecken; Der gleiche Taumel faßt das ganze Postgespann, Kein Rufen hilft, kein Zügel hält es an, Bis endlich, zu der Wandrer Schrecken,

Der Wagen, wohlgerüttelt und zerschellt, Auf eines Berges steilem Gipfel hält. »Das geht nicht zu mit rechten Dingen«, Spricht Hans mit sehr bedenklichem Gesicht. »So

wird es nimmermehr gelingen; Laß sehn, ob wir den Tollwurm nicht Durch magre Kost und Arbeit zwingen.« Die Probe wird gemacht. Bald ist das schöne Tier, Eh noch

drei Tage hingeschwunden, Zum Schatten abgezehrt. »Ich habs, ich habs gefunden!« Ruft Hans. »Jetzt frisch, und spannt es mir Gleich vor den Pflug mit meinem

stärksten Stier.« Gesagt, getan. In lächerlichem Zuge Erblickt man Ochs und Flügelpferd am Pfluge. Unwillig steigt der Greif und strengt die letzte Macht Der Sehnen an,

den alten Flug zu nehmen. Umsonst, der Nachbar schreitet mit Bedacht, Und Phöbus' stolzes Roß muß sich dem Stier bequemen, Bis nun, vom langen Widerstand

verzehrt, Die Kraft aus allen Gliedern schwindet, Von Gram gebeugt das edle Götterpferd Zu Boden stürzt und sich im Staube windet. »Verwünschtes Tier!« bricht

endlich Hansens Grimm Laut scheltend aus, indem die Hiebe flogen. »So bist du denn zum Ackern selbst zu schlimm? Mich hat ein Schelm mit dir betrogen.« Indem er

noch in seines Zornes Wut Die Peitsche schwingt, kommt flink und wohlgemut Ein lustiger Gesell die Straße hergezogen. Die Zither klingt in seiner leichten Hand, Und

durch den blonden Schmuck der Haare Schlingt zierlich sich ein goldnes Band. »Wohin, Freund, mit dem wunderlichen Paare?« Ruft er den Baur von weitem an. »Der

Vogel und der Ochs an einem Seile, Ich bitte dich, welch ein Gespann! Willst du auf eine kleine Weile Dein Pferd zur Probe mir vertraun, Gib acht, du sollst dein Wunder

schaun!« Der Hippogryph wird ausgespannt, Und lächelnd schwingt sich ihm der Jüngling auf den Rücken. Kaum fühlt das Tier des Meisters sichre Hand, So knirscht es

in des Zügels Band Und steigt, und Blitze sprühn aus den beseelten Blicken, Nicht mehr das vorge Wesen, königlich, Ein Geist, ein Gott, erhebt es sich, Entrollt mit

einemmal in Sturmes Wehen Der Schwingen Pracht, schießt brausend himmelan, Und eh der Blick ihm folgen kann, Entschwebt es zu den blauen Höhen.

PEGASUS IN HARNESS

At a horse market - perhaps Haymarket, Where other things even transform itself into a commodity, Applied once a hungry poet Steed of the Muses, to negotiate it.

Light whinnied the Hippogriff And reared in a magnificent parade; Each stand was amazed and exclaimed: "The noble, royal beast! Just a pity That its slender stature, a

hideous pair of wings Disfigured! It'd decorate the most beautiful mail train. The race, they say, is rare, But who will be chauffeured through the air? And no one wants to

lose money. " A Pachter finally took courage. "The wing though," he says, "that create no benefit But yes you can tie or clip, Then the horse to draw is always good. A

twenty pounds, which I will probably venture it. " The Deceiver, highly amused to strike the goods, Proposes a briskly. "A man, a word!" Hans fresh and trots away with

his booty. The noble animal is clamped. But it hardly feels the unfamiliar burden So it runs off with a wild desire Flight And throws, burning with wrath edelm, The cart to

the edge of a precipice. "All right," thought Hans. "But I must the great animals No more wagon confide. Experience makes even wise. But tomorrow I'll drive passengers

As I imagine it as a bias in the train. The merry crab to spare me two horses, Koller gives himself over the years. " The beginning went quite well. The light-winged horse

Revives the Klepper step, and swift as an arrow flies the car. But what happens? The view facing the clouds, And unfamiliar to hit the ground with solid hoof, Leaves

soon the wheels sichre track And true to the stronger nature, Charge through it by swamp and marsh, plowed field and hedges; The same wobble sums up the whole

post trailer, Call no help, no reins keeps at it, Until finally, to the wanderer terror The car, well shaken and shattered, Holds on a steep mountain peaks. "It's not about

having the right things" Hans speaks with a very dubious face. "That will never succeed; Let me see, not whether we have the Great Worm Force by meager fare and

work. " The sample is taken. Soon, the beautiful animal, Eh three more days to go esch sore, Emaciated to the shadows. "I have it, I found habs!" Hans calls. "Now,

fresh, and it stretched me Equal to the plow with my strongest bull. " Said and done. In the course ridiculous One sees the ox and plow horse on the wings. Unwilling

increases the gripping and hard the last power The tendons to take the old airport. In vain, the neighbor below wisely And Phoebus' proud steed must be the bull

convenient, Until now, consumed by the long resistance, The force of all the members disappears, Of Gram bowed the noble horse gods Falls to the ground and writhes

in the dust. "Accursed beast!" Finally breaks Hansen Grimm According scolding from the bats flew by. "So are you for plowing itself to bad? I was a rogue cheated with

you. " While he was still in his anger rage The whip swings, comes fast and cheerfully A boon companion, the road moved here. The zither sounds in his light hand, And

by the blond hair jewelry Wraps dainty a golden band. "Where, friend, with the whimsical couples?" He calls the Baur from afar. "The Bird and the ox by a rope, I ask you,

what a team! Want a little while Your Horse Sample confide to me Take heed, you shall behold your miracle! " The hippogriff is unclamped, And smiling to the boy

swinging him on the back. Hardly feels the animal sichre hand of the Master, So it crunches in the rein band And rising, and lightning Evereven from the soulful gaze, No

longer the pre-beings, royal, A spirit, a god, it rises, Unrolls a sudden storm in labor The swing splendor, shoots roaring skyward, And before the view can follow him It

soars to the heights blue.

THE PEGASUS IS NOT A HORSE

The Pegasus is not a horse nor an angel - itęs an alien - just like me or the rest of us who are different - it is as a simple but profound metaphor that Schiller is using - a

horse with wings has no use for the human beings - it canęt work nor does it make any sense to anyone who thinks inside a box - only a poet who comes across touches

the Pegasus gently so his wings can spread and he can fly away into heaven....there again is the metaphorical aspect of touching - every creature needs to be touched -

and the Ecce Home as crown of the evolution - would be dying if there was no touching - so in a way it resembles the incubator box where touching is reduced to the limit

of putting your hand in a whole - or coming back to the actual perfromance I am in right now - if beings touch their technical tools such as iPad iMac or iphone more than

themselves than there is alert.... simply the movement towards DIGITAL AUTISM!

protection is? After all itęs Utopia of course but - since the last illusion before disillusion is love - I have this vision of a womb to be my place of protection - whether itęs the

actual one or just a metaphor i am not quite sure myself - all I want by asking that question that reflexion starts and YOU make something out of it yourself...so what`s

your place of protection ? I did an installation that invites the viewer to experience how often this question has animated people to spontaneously express deeply

personal,statements that extend well beyond the notion of mere physical inviolability. Again and again those questioned seem at first to be struck with wonder by what

they are being asked. But, as Plato already noted: Wonder is where all philosophy begins...

OH LA LA ...FRAUNACHBAR!

Thanxx for the virtual flowers! My neighbour - who is actually a painter himself - and me have a crazy story that combines us - and I like to share it because itęs another

metaphor for the digital autism I am performing since thursday in Berlin, so here we go: SInce nearly 3 years I have a studio in an old warehouse where only offices are

and the only humans living in this surrounding is my neighbor - one of the last Dandies and me - the crazy girl. I like to emphasize the fact of a young girl ( well not so

young anymore ;-) and an older man ( not so old of course ;-) just like in a Thomas Mann novel for instance THE MAGIC MOUNTAIN because it gets a movie character

this way....Anyway, the neighbor and I never see each other - unless a few times in those years when we happen to empty the trash in the yard! We like each others face

book comments, write sms from time to time, share invites and events via email, talk on the phone every now and again - like last time when I called him in the middle of

the night because I had to smash 3 prison beds from my Documenta perfromance to take them to Berlin and the noise was so loud that I feared he would be falling out of

his bed .... my point is: We never talk and see each other - itęs a virtual way of knowing of each other but our lives seem to be so busy that we donęt even have time to

share a simple coffee or manage to have a REAL conversation - another way of digital autism! So Mr. neighbor - when I will survive this shit and donęt end up in the

lunatic cell we will have a date! Done!

HI

Hi Why do you think art Neefs to protected ?

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Sat, 04/27/2013 - 15:38

PROTECTION?

Hi Rainer, now I get it - I totally feel that art needs protection - just like any other diverse range of human activities and their products - the ones who produce it need

protection big time as well since they expose their inner feelings to the public - there is a german word called UNGEBORGENHEIT - this you can feel everywhere so why

not within art? Protection is no solution but an idea or a vision which could make be liberating ....

PROTECTION

I've always been sacred and feel that I do not have any place where I can truly come to rest. I sometimes feel this is a symptom of our sped-up/fed-up material world.You

went to India for example and visited some of the poorest people in the world. How do you think do they find spiritual protection? They seem invincible in their beliefs.

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Sat, 04/27/2013 - 15:48

THE LESS YOU FEAR THE LESS

The less you fear the less you need to worry! My Guru in India would always say - to any sorts of problems, worries or concerns: GIVE IT TO HARI! Hari is a sanskrit

word and often used as a name for Vishnu, a Hindu God. It goes with a hand movement where you pretend as though you through something behind you ;-* At first you

feel funny doing it but since in India everything feels strange you get used to it very soon! My deepest experience actually was when I stayed at an orphan try to work

with the homeless kids - I did not think I would have the strenght to do but it was my blessing - almost as though the spoilt rich kid from the western world enters a kind of

transmission zone where no rules where the way I would know them - simply life lay infront of me and I had the chance to embrace it - which I did... I wanna show you

Mia-Florentine replied on Sat, 04/27/2013 - 16:37

MEIN BETT

The story of the bed... my bed comes from a prison in Kassel where hundreds of prisoners slept in until itęs closing a few years ago - so per se itęs a bed with a history -

which is an important contradiction because usually a bed is a comfort zone and nice and comfy right? This is not he case here - the perfromance PEACE NEVER

SLEEPS is really about placing something from one world into a different environment - so I sleep outside where as the opposite the bed takes place in the gallery space

where I am digitally autistic and wide awake via drugs we all consume every day: digital technology! Your question is really important because itęs the essence of what I

am doing - the answer is kind of like my Leitmotiv - IN BETWEEN! Torn between the two worlds - the condition of protection / fear , live / death , desire / addiction , health

/ sickness and so on and on .... after all there is no safe place - itęs all about where the bed makes the most sense! I might not even be in it if I put it in the middle of a war

zone because it says it all by itself - perfection is reached when nothing can be taken away .... I am on my way there ....the nucleus of things!

Mia-Florentine replied on Sat, 04/27/2013 - 16:12

THE BOY WITHOUT THE DREAM....

I feel I can trust you so I wanna share the story with you: In the orphantry near Rishikesh are all the children no one wants - ones have worse stories than others - it goes

from prostitution to begging, living on the streets and diseases to any horror you can possibly think of and in our world just seems like a foreign nightmare - the boy

without the dream has a scarf on his head - and never talked - until I was with him a few times - he stopped talking after his whole family died in a an accident - they were

so poor - his parents and his 7 siblings that every night they sleppt in the gutter with only the shirt they are wearing as a cushion - one night a truck lost control and killed

all of them ...except him! I donęt know how many years agao it was but after the accident the boy never said a word - thats why I dedicated one poem clip to him bceause

he finally did answer my question of protection: I DON`T HAVE ANY DREA! Now that makes me cry thinking of it....

I THINK YOU NEED PROTECTION ....

Thank you - can I actually hire you every day to make it happen ;-* Nice that someone thinks I need protection - I do! Thatęs why I face my fear so many times with

everything I perform - If I remember the Hollywood sign - I was dead scared ! The craziest moment of my life so to speak sitting on the H letter and feeling the wind

blowing in my wings fighting with my strength whether I would fall down or not...This symbol is so important for me because it reflects the hypocracy of Hollywood -

Everybody in LA is chasing their dream but only one little minority makes it - the rest is slowely fading away just like the sunset over Venice beach where I stayed with the

homeless for my Art Angel performance - Hollywood is both - the landmark visualizing our dreams but at the same time it is hope as well as despair .... and itęs the most

protected sign in the US - just like the White House - only Angels can fly up their ....

HOLLYWOOD SIGN / WIKIPEDIA

The Hollywood Sign (formerly known as the Hollywoodland Sign) is a landmark and American cultural icon located in Los Angeles, California. It is situated on Mount Lee

in the Hollywood Hills area of the Santa Monica Mountains. The sign overlooks the Hollywood district of Los Angeles. "HOLLYWOOD" is spelled out in 45-foot-tall (14 m)

[1] and 350-foot-long (110 m) white capital letters. It was originally created as an advertisement for local real estate development in 1923, but garnered increasing

recognition after the sign was left up.[2] The sign was a frequent target of pranks and vandalism but has since undergone restoration, including the installation of a

security system to deter vandalism. The sign is protected and promoted by the Hollywood Sign Trust, a nonprofit organization. From the ground, the contours of the hills

give the sign its "wavy" appearance, as reflected in the Hollywood Video logo, for example. When observed at a comparable altitude, as in the photo shown on the right,

the letters appear nearly level. The sign makes frequent appearances in popular culture, particularly in establishing shots for films and television programs set in or

around Hollywood. Signs of similar style, but spelling different words, are frequently seen as parodies.

not real - the only thing which is no illusion is an ANGEL!

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Sat, 04/27/2013 - 17:16

EVERY ANGEL IS TERROR!

I would be consumed in that overwhelming existence. For beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror, which we still are just able to endure, and we are so awed

because it serenely disdains to annihilate us. Every angel is terrifying. And so I hold myself back and swallow the call-note of my dark sobbing. Ah, whom can we ever

turn to in our need? Not angels, not humans, and already the knowing animals are aware that we are not really at home in our interpreted world. Rilke - the first elegy

THE MIRROR OF THE PEOPLE

I just got a rather curious answer: THE MIRROR! How can a mirror be a place of protection? Does anyone have an answer to that? I thought about it ALL day and now I

am ready to answer ....a mirror is nothing else but a way of projection - if you look inside you can see yourself and thatęs the naked truth - when does that ever happen ?

Usually we try to create scenarios around us to make us more visible - the curse of our society which is spinning only around the superlatives higher faster richer better

(schöner) etc but the mirror is kind of like a one way street - yet also fascinating because it has a depth in terms of the space around us if we watch our silhoutte - a

mirror is another symbolic thing where I necessarily need to think of the fairytale and the famouse sentence: mirror mirror on the wall - who is the fairest one of all?

MIRROR MIRROR

Today something crazy came to my mind - I saw some of the material from yesterday and there was something which hit me the most: I am in my digital world and

looked up and away chatting and mailing away - 8 hours a day without any break - the total aclypse of digital overkill - and each morning I go into my bed there is a girl

sitting on the chair in the gallery space to watch over everything - the first glimpse of her is with her iPhone texting and the last when the performance is done as well -

which leads to the conclusion: I AM THE MIRROR OF THE PEOPLE! You donęt need to be in a synthetic surrounding to feel the fake reality around us cause verybody is

already in it : HAPPY DIGITAL AUTISM!!!!!!!!!!!!!

like in a hospital bed - just the tubes are not filled with medicine that should be running through ones veins - but data floating through media cables until the digital war

PRISON BED

The bed of peace comes from an isolation cell of a former prison in Kassel - a prison bed resembles a strong antagonism: protection and itęs antitheses! The biggest

prison could be oneself - our own body - the unability to step or think out of the box - in the bible it says - you shall not make for yourself an idol - but think about it? Who

often are you really not judgmental???

PRISON

I had a self made prison in order to protect myself.In order not to feel the pain and be overrolled by my emotions sadness and huge lack of comfort i had put them all in

prison.It always took alot of energy from me to play the guard of these prisoners. And erverytime when I did that I was a temporary diconected with my heart. But actually

I was the prisoner and the emotion my guards. Until this wall of protection compleetly exploded one day. Now I released all of them " wegen guter Führung und positiver

Resozialisierung". The prison is closed now forever, because of a lack of prisoners.

THE BEAUTY OF TRANSIENCE ...

In unserer Gesellschaft muss Schönheit sich verbergen, um ernst genommen zu werden....Itęs only in our society where beauty needs to be hidden to be considered

serious - otherwise people think itęs UNSERIÖS! Does this mean common assumption is bigger than independent reflexion?

INCOGNITO COMMENT:

prison I had a self made prison in order to protect myself.In order not to feel the pain and be overrolled by my emotions sadness and huge lack of comfort i had put them

all in prison.It always took alot of energy from me to play the guard of these prisoners. And erverytime when I did that I was a temporary diconected with my heart. But

actually I was the prisoner and the emotion my guards. Until this wall of protection compleetly exploded one day. Now I released all of them " wegen guter Führung und

positiver Resozialisierung". The prison is closed now forever, because of a lack of prisoners. ----

What a sweet name - hopefully good luck for me! I just came from a perfromance in Austria / Innsbruck where I did a piece in an incubator object under the title: PLEASE

DO TOUCH - TOUCHING CAN HEAL THE ART! It was an overwhelming experience - the biggest impact any perfromance of mine ever had on me as well as the

audience - my gallerist from ARTDEPOT said when she introduced me the following words: TONIGHT MIA IS AUSTRIAN!!!! So I canęt wait to get back which will be after

Gallery Weekend on May 3 in Innsbruck - if I find time I will post the details later, big kiss to my lucky philosopher ;-*

ART TALK AUSTRIA

Artdepot Innsbruck & Künstlerin Mia Florentine Weiss laden am 03.05.2013 zum art talk in Innsbruck • „(s)he says – shes says“ – hinterfragt in einer Live-Diskussion

die künstlerischen Leitmotive zur aktuellen Ausstellung THOSE IN LOVE LIVE IN FEAR • Mixed-media Installationen mit Fokus auf Geborgenheit und

Lebensnotwendigkeit menschlicher Berührungen noch bis zum 06.06.2013 im artdepot zu sehen Die Sehnsucht nach Schutz und Nähe und die kontroversen Facetten

des Gefühls Liebe prägen die Werke der Künstlerin Mia Florentine Weiss. Ausgewählte Stücke werden derzeit im Innsbrucker artdepot präsentiert. Unter dem Titel

„THOSE IN LOVE LIVE IN FEAR“ stellt die 33jährige die Extreme menschlicher Gefühle einander gegenüber. So beschäftigen sich ihre ausgestellten mixed-media

Installationen, Foto- und Videoarbeiten u.a. mit „Liebe/Unliebe“, „Geborgenheit/Ungeborgenheit“, „Sucht/Sehnsucht“, „Angst/Hoffnung“ sowie „Leben/Tod“. Die Eröffnung

der Vernissage begleitete Mia Florentine Weiss am 23. April 2013 mit der Live Performance „PLEASE DO TOUCH - TOUCHING CAN HEAL THE ART!“. Und mit dieser

Performance traf die Künstlerin mitten ins Herz der Galeriebesucher: In einem lebensgroßen Inkubator-Objekt führte die Künstlerin dem Betrachter die verschwimmende

Grenze zwischen Schutz und Schutzlosigkeit vor Augen und zeigte gleichzeitig die Lebensnotwendigkeit menschlicher Berührung auf. Die Anteilnahme und die äußerst

emotionalen Reaktionen der Zuschauer überw.ltigten die Künstlerin. Ihre Erfahrungen aus dieser Performance sowie die Leitmotive ihres künstlerischen Schaffens

diskutiert Mia Florentine Weiss am 03.05.2013, 19 Uhr gemeinsam mit Dr. Michaela Preiner (Kunsthistorikerin, Herausgeberin der "European-Cultural-News" sowie

Kuratorin einiger großer öffentlicher Sammlungen) unter dem Titel „(s)he says - she says“ im Innsbrucker artdepot.

This is probably the most honest answer there is - when I was traveling I interviewd the people so it was direct - often the question was not quiet understood - which was

like putting the key into a lock because this way I would be in a dialog straight away - What is your place of protection? What do you mean by it? Is it a place ? I donęt get

the question? etc etc - simsalabim they were right in the middle of it ;-* The word PROECTION is rather strong - not something tender like love, dream, vision etc - its

powerful and male - SCHUTZ! There is a wide intrerpretation towards it.... The experiment the last few days - apart of my digital autism - is the difference how people

respond when the are filmed or when itęs more anonymous like in this chat - where you can even put a fake name in and you have time to think about the answer - I think

we are much less concerned when it comes to the Internet because itęs like a Fluxus - so fast moving that whatever you say is replaced by the next after the next after

PROTECTED

I feel fine! It would never occur to me that something could happen...and I donęt see the people anyway - I have no idea who is here nor how many people. Let me

explain: I wear my grandmotheręs nightgown from the beginning of the 20.th century in which I did my very first perfomance nearly one decade ago - first layer of

protection! Than I wear earplugs and listen to hard core techno the whole time I am in bed! Second section! Finally I wear my glasses and focus on the writing - all the

good things are 3! For every performance you need to be very clear what you want to achieve and how it will be perceived - than itęs just a matter of enduring! The bed

inside the gallery is easy - the data overkill is the pain - in front of the Fridericianum at the Documenta the pain was trying to be asleep outside without the artificial

differentiation - anyone could have touched or done something to me .... itęs the will to finish off what you started and never to give up - otherwise you canęt do it

jovannyvarela replied on Sun, 04/28/2013 - 17:40

NOT "WHAT" BUT "WHEN"

Mia - I could not bring myself to answer your question because the question did not lead me to a fulfilling answer. When you ask, "what is your place of protection?" the

mind goes straight into the material world to find an answer. Could it be my bed? - No, as much as I tend to have dreams in it, I've also had nightmares. Any material

thing can be both protective and destructive, depending on the situation. The thing about your question is that, out loud, you are asking for someone's place of protection,

yet in silently you are also asking them for their fears and fragilities; the things they feel the need to be protected. I wonder what came first, the shield or the sword

(metaphorically speaking). But ultimately I realized that I could only approach your question if asked differently: "When is your place of protection?" Because my place of

protection is not an external structure but rather, for lack of better words, a "spiritual" infrastructure. Not a place but the feeling of a fleeting moment. Those moments

when I do not protect myself from anything; those moments when I'm so vulnerably confident that I could die right there and then and be okay with it. I'm sure we all feel

those moments from time to time; where no shield and no sword feel necessary for this journey. My protection, my shelter, my refuge; the thing that secures that i risk

taking the next loving breath is when i closely and entirely grasp how vulnerable and fragile we really are. I tend to know exactly what to do after those moments.

 

 

Mia-Florentine replied on Sun, 04/28/2013 - 17:56

I WISH ...

I wish had not finished the installation because I certainly would have added your answer - itęs just the way I would like to encourage everyone out there to find their own

interpretation of protection - if one goes further by replacing the *what*with *when* itęs a different dimension which beautiful - what is interesting is that by having lived in

our western society - what you probably refer by as the material world - that was one of the reasons for the question - so the answer would break free and lead into

another world which we might not even know of....thatęs why I took the shield and sword to India - 2 symbolic insiginas of our history - trying to go beyond - for each of us

comes the time in life where you drop your weapons - what ever they are - this unconditional vulnerability which is nothing but unconditional love - with me I always need

the opposite in order to get to the other side....

Mia-Florentine replied on Sun, 04/28/2013 - 17:58

WWW.ART-PROTECTOR.COM

I was asked about the video-installation and how to watch all answers which I chose so if you want check out: www.art-protector.com The previous century can still be

comprehended as the period of “transcendental homelessness” Georg Lukács described in 1918. Even today, the proverbial ‘search for security’ has, in addition to its

literal meaning, a relatively large number of troubling connotations aimed at the sensibilities of the homeless earthlings we ourselves have become. Whether it lies in the

vulnerability generated by our mobile lifestyles, or in the repercussions of globalisation that make our wish for ‘a home we can call our own’ seem purely nostalgic: in

each case the experience of feeling safe, protected and at home seems to be fading into oblivion. Has anyone recently raised the question? Mia Florentine Weis has

spent the past 10 years of her life on a journey. During her travels she asked everyone she encountered one simple yet confounding question: “What is your place of

protection?” The question forbids us the typical differentiations (such as “where do you live?” or “where do you feel at home?” or “do you feel safe?”), thus forcing us to

first reflect upon the manifold dimensions of ‘protection’ we seldom think about. For if there is a place where we feel protected and secure, what does such protection

ultimately mean? Protection from whom? And for what? To many, it seems the world is still full of peril. But a place free from violence does not appear to adequately

answer the question. Mia Florentine Weiss has culled together the results of her inquiry in a multimedia installation entitled What Is Your Place Of Protection?. Each of

the installation’s 54 digital clips is based upon a poetry performance by the artist and offers its own answer to this question. The installation invites the viewer to

experience how often this question has animated people to spontaneously express deeply personal, even metaphysical statements that extend well beyond the notion of

mere physical inviolability. Again and again those questioned seem at first to be struck with wonder by what they are being asked. But, as Plato already noted: Wonder is

where all philosophy begins....

UTERUS AND ONE MORE ANSWER....

Coming back to the origin: My place of protection is the Uterus - it is here where *everything is eternal in the innermost relatives*. I feel there are no words needed to

explain any more - thatęs why I would like to share something really special now as a result of being looked up in DIGITAL AUTISM: Within the perfromance I found a

second place of protection which is so obvious that I never really knew it until today - probably because one cannot see the forest for the trees - itęs WORDS! Without

words I could have not survived this multimedia marathon - without words I would have not been able to endure those long days in bed - without words I could have not

been able to communicate my feelings and without words I would have not gotten all those beautiful honest answers! I am not sure where we are heading in terms of

technology and development but there is definitley one complex codex which will keep the inner world together although the outer world might fall apart and that is

communication! I thank everybody who made the effort writing to me sharing their feelings and therefore saving me from the one way road of data traffic jam in my head

during the time of the performance! LOVE AND THANXXX MIA FLORENTINE

My plMeine Kunst zu Gestalten .. zu sehen wie wunderschöne Dinge meiner Fantasie entspringen .. meine kleinen Träume zu verwirklichen und darin in Glück auf zu

gehen .. meine Kunst gibt mir Frieden und Sonnenschein wenn die Welt voll Grau und Unruhe ist .. Liebe .. Freundschaft .. Geborgenheit .. und all dies in meiner Kunst

aus zu drücken ist my place of Protection Das Glück zu haben dass mein Armband Dir gfällt :)

Great performance, I admire ur strength and the ability to express all this feelings and thoughts throught words....will reread some of the things - at home and in peace...

+ watch the videos as well, since I didnt see them yet...Congrats now, when it is over! :) I am really happy I had a Chance to be a part of the gallery space in which ur

performance was going on, to look at the process for three days, three different days, it was interesting and inspiring. It made me belive and want to follow my own

dreams even more!
