NIEUWEGEIN HANGS ARTIST

The Work: Programmanager of the inner city Cultural Activities
September 4th 2010 at De Kom theatre in Nieuwegein

We suprised the people of the city Nieuwegein by hanging a man high and relaxed against a wall of the city theatre.

Johan Lorbeer is the German artist who created this magical performance. He became famous in the past few years because of his “Still-Life” Performances, which took place in the public area. In these performances he seems to unhinge the laws of gravity. For hours on time, he remains, as a living work of art, in physically impossible positions.

Elevated or reduced to the state of a sculpture, he interacts with the bewildered and irritated audience, often culminating in the wish to touch the artist in his superhuman, angelic appearance in order to participate in his abilities.
