Evamaria Schaller’s work oscillates between performance art, film and installation.
I work with the media film as a documentary instrument. Film with its bodily materiality is a central theme. In my video performances I use the recordings to fragment the body into moving particles. I deal with social environment and liminal spaces and use my body as a measure. In my Live-Performances I work with daily actions and its absurdity. In this examinations I reflect and intervene with site-specific conditions and create actions or installations through simple, clear gestures. I am interested in this interaction with site-specific conditions which govern human behaviour and relationships. I transform and decontextualize daily materials or found footage and combine it. I always have to adjust my own borders—failure as a constant companion.
