Yesterday I went to the project space Savvy Contemporary to see the last show at their old location on Richardstrasse in Neukölln. In August they will be relaunching in a much bigger space on the same street. Curated by Yves Chatap, the current show "Intimités" shows works by several artist, who have been investigating in the displacement of everyday life habits and traditions between intimate and public situations. While the main part of the show is dominated by photography and video, the highlight of the exhibition was the striking performance by Cedric Audrey Phibel. Costumed as transsexuals, two men staged a mix between the setting of a chaotic Rock-Band and the narrative story of a fresh wedding couple. Intimate elements, such as shaving the hair of the head, involving dildos or being half-naked, were enforced by the fact that the performance took place in the middle of the street. The happening was crowned by Phibel carrying a half pig on top of his head.
